    I would suggest concentrating on just one thing only first and actually produce a physical, finished item that potential customers can touch, feel, drive etc.

    I very much doubt anyone will commission you to produce one offs until after the above has proven your capabilities, less distractions the better at this stage :)

    What about mclarens as donor cars? Independent tub, cheap second hand and a styling crying out to be swapped for something better.

    Good for you for ditching that old turd of a chassis.

    I have no affiliation with Dennis palatov but I read his blog just about every week. Might I suggest contacting him? He designed a chassis specifically for putting bodies on top and might be a good connection to have.

    Checkout:
    Dpcars.net.

    Sector111 uses his D2 chassis for their Draken track car also. The only thing I wish he would do is put some damn arb's on his cars!

    Anti roll bars.

    Also i should add, the palatov chassis is a tube frame. So not as sexy as a carbon or aluminum monocoque design but it can be light and strong for a lot less moola.

    One benefit of using a Ferrari chassis is that the car can be titled a Ferrari

    Hi guys,

    Been a little while but I'm excited to share what's in the works. It's great interacting on Fchat, but with time in short supply I'm sharing my work and progress primarily through Instagram. My Instagram handle is @salaffdesign.

    The new design on the Gallardo doesn't have the clean lines of his original design. I hope he is able to finish his thoughts one day

    So did he never finish that first car?

    I really enjoy what he is doing. Some of his concepts though...
