Britain's kit car industry isn't just alive and well, it is hale and hearty if last year's Exeter Kit Car show is anything to go by. The newest home-built contraption is the SDR Sports Cars WR3 V-Storm. Like a number of other British cars most famously represented by the Ariel Atom, the V-Storm is basically scaffolding with seats and an engine.
The previous model was powered by the V-twin from an Aprilia RSV1000. The latest model gets its scoot from a Subaru Impreza engine with more than 300 horsepower, good for a run from 0-to-60 of about three seconds. The "3" in the WR3 moniker refers to the seating: a McLaren F1 style center position for the driver and two wingmen behind. Kits start at £3,995 ($6,534 U.S.), or £19,995 ($32,700 U.S.), plus VAT and fripperies, for a turn-key car.
