The Pontiac Solstice SD-290 is a tremendous red pixie of a single-seater. It's a slot car minus a slot, though it probably has much better throttle control since you don't have to drive it with your hand. A racer with nothing extraneous, it loses all that pesky fluff like a passenger seat, climate control, windshield (and of course, windshield wipers), and throws in the turbo 2.0L DI engine, tonneau cover, and a fire extinguisher.

The lump puts out 290 HP and the car rides on the already available Club Sport Z0K suspension and handsome but effective 19-inch wheels. Air meets the car at a beautiful, carbon-lipped front spoiler with microns of ground clearance. Then it swoops over the passenger side tonneau cover and through your hair, passing a peaked roll bar behind, then out over a plank of a spoiler. It's the kind of car that won't do you any good for the milk run, but if you want to run the track in your Pontiac D-Type, this is the go. Check out the gallery below for more pics of the solo Solstice.

      Why not put the seat in the middle?

        too much modification since it's based on a two-seater. I've seen other race-modified cars with the same deal.
