Here are some words that no one has ever used to describe a Local Motors Rally Fighter: "boring." "Pedestrian." "Yawn." And to make sure it stays that way , Local Motors has decided to stuff a supercharger under the already souped-up hood, so now your desert racer can be propelled by 600 ponies.
The folks at Local Motors took the Rally Fighter out to Glamis and Plaster City for testin', tunin' and beatin' the ever-livin' snot outta it. This video's got some vehicular explanation and some pretty decent off-roading porn. Enjoy
The crowd-sourced Local Motors Rally Fighter has taken a big step toward completion — an official first drive under its own power. The short clip below shows the push-button start-up and a drive around the parking lot.
This is Local Motors' Rally Fighter, the first car openly developed and built using crowd-sourcing. It will change the auto industry forever. More importantly for me, with its P-51 fighter plane-influenced design, it might be the coolest-looking car ever.
