When first we saw the Dallara, it was running around the Nürburgring a month ago - the embodiment of a street-legal car with racing DNA going back 45 years. Here, we get a new, and much closer, look at the car on the street in Germany.

Dallara began in 1972 as a builder of race chassis and a builder of a fine reputation doing that: Dallara cars have won 15 of the 19 Indy 500s in which they competed, for example.

Now 80, founder Gian Paolo Dallara wants to build a road car, and this is it. It's certainly small. Dallara has said he's aiming for 800 kilos - that's less than 1,800 pounds. It looks like a tiny Le Mans car with a big bubble canopy.

And speculation has it, that light weight would be rocketed along by a mid-engine 2.3-liter Ford Ecoboost four-cylinder turbo making 380-400 horsepower - as compared to that engine's 310 horsepower in the Mustang or 350 in the Focus RS.

Still no word on when it might go on sale, how much it'll cost, or where you could get one, though
Dallara could distribute it through a race partner such as Honda, Renault, or Ferrari. And you can assume it will be of limited production.
