Cool car but way too expensive.
Why does a minimalist car start at $56,000. I can't imagine it costs near that to make. I saw this thing and expected a price of about $12-15k
You actually have to pay more if you are willing to put it together yourself.

I agree the price is nuts! But some smart marketing person must have told this company to make it weird, give it a gimmick (minimalist), keep it low volumn and price it to insure exclusiveness...and take it to the bank!
