Default Superlite Apex

Pics of the new kit car from superlite finally were posted. starts as a 95-99 eclipse, cuts the front and back off leaving the interior/cabin for an OEM feel, comes with front/rear subframes. Moves the 4g63 to the back or the ls4. I want to use a 6g74 stroker in one. With corvette suspension the kit is $14k, but they also are making CNC machined parts like the parts from the SL-C.

the owner said no because of moving the engine to the back but they are building an awd car for someone with too much money to blow, they never said the cost of that one off build but said its way up there!

Well, damm. That is pretty badass looking. I wonder if the production bodies will be that tight or did they spend an extra 100 hours on it to eliminate all the seams between body panels.

It'd be a shame to have a car that nice looking on the outside and then have a 95-99 eclipse interior... Lol.

There's a company that makes every plastic piece in the interior in CF, with those, some suede on the dash and parts of the door panels, topped off with black carpet would look a lot better

Yeah, that would probably look nice... But soon, you'd be getting up into the $$$ range, which kinda defeats the purpose of using a eclipse chassis in the first place haha.

It's 1045 with free shipping for all the CF parts id want so it's not too expensive.

Yeah, I had that same thought. So take the interior of your 3000GT... we all try, but not many of them look new. Especially not in what would be a donor car.

Still, it's a nice twist on using an old VW chassis as the basis for a kit car. Hell, we are probably one of the few groups who think using an Eclipse and a 4G63 is a cool idea.

Personal preference I guess but the eclipse interior with suede, CF, and black carpet will look like a more modern supercar interior and pending the condition of eclipse or talon you buy you could use everything from the original car and only have to buy the kit from them. Some guys are buying 500-600whp cars to use the engine and trans out of.
