Local Motors Rally Fighters at the 2010 SEMA Show - Click above for high-res image gallery

Just like it promised, Local Motors has come to the 2010 SEMA show with five ready-to-rock Rally Fighters. The crowd-sourced design is paying off, because LM says that another five should be done before we switch the calendar over to 2011.

On hand are the two prototype vehicles, known as Beta 1 and Beta 2, while the other three Rally Fighters represent the first vehicles going to customer homes. Jay Rogers, CEO of Local Motors, naturally scooped up the first example and he uses it as his daily driver. (Awesome.) The other two customer cars are going to face two very different lives; the one going to Jay Zuppardo and his family will be turned into a sand rail, while the other going to John Domolky will be used as a daily driver vehicle in his hometown of Boston. See them all for yourself in our high-res gallery below.

      Very nice to see the Rally Fighter hitting production. Now, Local, how about the Boston Bullet?

        Cool, great to hear from you, Ariel.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I want this one too!!!! We will begin next vehicle choice in 2011 - you all have to help choose the concept & develop - will be so fun to see the next one come to life. I'll send word.

      Inititive like this makes me smile - what a great car/manufacturing idea
      • 4 Years Ago
      Nice.

      I still like the brushed black metal look on the back part of the bodywork... But the whole thing is just serious hardware. great stuff.

        Huh I just though that was unpainted fiberglass.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It's brushed carbon fiber on the nose and rear; the rest of the body is fiberglass. Customers get to choose their own unique vinyl skin - they had a lot of fun with it.

      Crowd sourced cars can be so awesome!

      Civic tail lights are the "beauty" of crowd source design making its way to engineering. Rather than using their own original and extremely expensive to test and prove designs, they'll just pull parts off the shelf from other automakers (Or their suppliers.)

      I hope it performs better then it looks.
      ... and of all the rear bumpers to jerry-rig to to the back they chose that of a Civic coupe. (sigh)

      I'd take the raw chassis without the body

        just took the lights from the Civic. Door handle from a NA Miata. And a big whompin 6.0 ltr(I think) Diesel from a BMW.

        It performs.

      what's with the Civic tail lights?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Tooling-up for tail lights would be way too expensive for a low-run vehicle.
        • 4 Years Ago
        They add to the Rally Fighter's natural Mad Max coolness.
