In the video, he says they pass IVA, which is basically a "super" MOT test.I really give a lot of credit and respect to the guy behind this venture but, sadly, and as much as I love the idea, I have very serious concerns over the safety of these or similar cars. They are new cars an therefore need to meet all current standards for safety. If they do, brilliant, but if they don't I suspect they will run into problems. Has any crash testing been done?
Pretty sure you could get a non running donor car for cheaper than a new shell, i gave away an F reg non running MGB GT in 2001, cost me £3k in 1992.Hardly surprising, since the bare bodyshell goes for £12-14k on its own.
