Don't worry... this one's news to us, as well. You're looking at the fruits of the Composite Car Project, a mid-engined, Porsche 911-powered street racer made of fiberglass and Aramid honeycomb (read: Kevlar) weighing just 1650 lbs. and named 'Heidelberg.' Saleens, Nobles, Moslers and Ultimas just too 'common' for you? Then eBay might just have your number with this auction.

And like any exclusive offer worth its salt... "But wait, there's more!" The winning bidder also receives all of the molds, dies, and tooling used to make the Heidelberg, along with a second red car awaiting the bidder's choice of powertrains. All-in, the seller reckons there are two semi-loads of stuff worth around $1.5 million dollars (including tons of spare parts) in addition to the two cars. A matching set of Ginsu knives are apparently extra, sadly.

These represent two of three CCPs produced, so someone out there is running around with another of these eccentric gullwing racers. The eBayer is quick to point out that these cars aren't built from kits, they are "... a result of an aerospace company just having fun."

What do you think... any of you readers keen on starting your own supercar company? If you buy it, be sure to drop us a line... mid-nineties technology or no, we want a test-drive.

      that is the most hideos combination of steel, plastic and glass I have ever seen. It needs to be thrown into mt. doom along with frodo and the new BMW z4 roadster

      Can't say I blame the guy for wanting to sell it.

      If I owned that car, I would sell it too.

      Yes, it has a very fussy rear end and the roof length/side glass screws the pooch on the side view.

      Cut it down to a driver only car, and clean up the rear end.

      Otherwise, it could easily be a racecar.

      Remember that episode of The Simpsons in which Homer designs a car?

      ... Homer's car was better looking than that POS.

      That is, without question, one of the most poorly proportioned cars I have ever seen.

      World's fastest butt plug.

      It reminds me of some of those "re-bodied" go-karts you see at a rent-a-lap/video arcade, waterpark, picnic areas.

      Put a Scat 1600 Dual Carb engine and VW transaxle, w/ a front suspension pieced together from Type 1 parts, you could make a road ready "Cheapster" for about 25k...

      Of course, a solstice would be a better deal (and seat twice as many) but you can't have everything...
