Everywhere you look on that thing there is something interesting and different. Like the rear end...massive. And the front suspension...which you can not see at all. Do you have any other sites with more pics and detail of the chassis?

That is awesome, so clean and crisp, the side by side is great. BTW, that is killer photography in there.

Volvo tried this idea back in '06 with a collaboration between Bugatti & Caresto. This was the result - the V8 Speedster...





A few more shots of the Jakob...

You would drag the frame well before you would get it rolling.



I like it

I can understand the lack of seat belts (unless they are hidden somehow - although no evidence of that) but wouldn't the lack of roll protection make virtually all T-buckets, roadsters and convertibles of any year death traps?

Yes! I did not mean to offend anyone though. Its just my lil nightmare of getting my tall torso crushed in half in a roll over accident thats all. Any car can flip. I don't car how wide or low it sits. You get it going 150mph and do something stupid it can flip.
Now I am sorry I ever said anything!

Isn't geting it going 150 kind of asking for it?
