    My reasonably priced car:)
    Started today and made some progress on the front of the car.

    It will be a 4.1m long four-seater that is a mix of hot hatch/coupe. It has a rear-mounted 1.2L three cylinder turbocharged engine. Currently at 135 hp with a moderate boost of 0.5 bar. Hoping to stay close to the minimum weight...

    I like the futuristic front, it reminds me of BMW's.

    Worked a little bit on car again tonight. The rough specifications of the engine is ready now

    Started a little bit on the body too. Never made a small car before so a lot of trial and error:D I find it harder to do this kind of car than the usual sports/supercars. Not so pleased with the shape so far, needs more work...

    The car looks pretty agressive and menacing from the front. You could add a couple of intakes on the front bumper and add some cool foglights(by cool i mean not round).

    I guess you haven`t worked too much on the rear. Waiting to see that detailed also.

    Good luck.

    Yep, if you could it'd be good. I'd like something else to tinker with :)
