Ever dream of making your own supercar? Yeah, so have I, and so has everyone else, and their cousins. Although most undoubtedly get scrapped along the way, a fair few end up making it to the road. Add to those growing ranks the Bolwell Nagari, the latest home-grown sportscar from... Australia?
Granted that the Aussies aren't as well known as, say, Italy or England (or even Holland, for that matter) for making supercars, but that should ensure the awkwardly-named Bolwell Nagari gets the
lion's kangaroo's share of attention when it's unveiled at the Melbourne Motor Show on February 29. It's built by Campbell Bolwell – one of three brothers who co-founded their own kit car company in Victoria, Australia – who has released one full-frontal image of the Nagari (named after the MkVIII Bolwell kit car from the '70s, not the Mazda show car), which he describes as drawing design elements from the McLaren F1 and "the best Italian mid-engined exotics". Construction is said to be of carbon fiber, and sources suggest either a V8 or a supercharged Toyota V6, mid-mounted and driving the rear wheels.
