2010 Rapier SL-C Superlite Coupe - Click above for high-res image gallery
Well look what we have here. If you've got a hankering for GM's small-block power wedged into an American-made, hand-stitched chassis, you're in luck. Rapier, a Boston-based supercar builder, is now taking orders for its one and only SL-C Superlite Coupe via eBay. For the low, low "Buy it Now" price of $179,000, you too can lay your greedy mitts on a mid-engined exotic with a GM-sourced LS3 mounted amidships. Rapier will even let you customize the car with whatever interior/exterior color combination strikes your fancy.

The company extracts a healthy 376 horsepower from the base eight-pot, and that's supposedly good enough to propel the SL-C to a top speed of 222 mph. Something tells us the common man is a little more likely to see the 3.6-second 0-60 time, though. And given the SL-C Superlite Coupe's curb weight of 2,375 pounds, those numbers are more than realistic. As you might have guessed, buyers packing fatter billfolds can opt for a 505-hp LS7 or an 800-pony supercharged LS9. You can check out the sordid details at the Rapier site.

Suddenly, we've got a new reason to visit Boston.
