2015 Local Motors Rally Fighter

Picture: Cars and Bids

Remember the Local Motors Rally Fighter? With its crowdsourced design that combines a sports car with an off-roader and a classification as a kit car that makes it 50-state legal, it’s the kind of thing that few people want to own but almost everything will be appreciated. If you drive one, you are guaranteed to get attention wherever you go.

Only about 100 Rally Fighters were built before production stopped, making them extremely rare. But if you’re kicking yourself for not buying a new one, we have good news. Cars and Bids currently have a Rally Fighter for sale with only 600 miles on it. If you’ve got the money, this can be yours for the low, low price of “be prepared to pay big time, friend.” There are seven days left in the auction, and at the time of writing, it has reached $42,000.

Doug Demuro also posted a video review of the Rally Fighter, and in addition to talking about all the quirks and features, he also mentioned a particularly interesting piece of information: Apparently, the seller used to work for Local Motors, and when production was shut down, he bought the rights to the Rally Fighter. So even though it’s no longer in production, if you really want a brand new one, technically it’s still possible.

And considering it’s an ultra-low-volume car, you bet the Rally Fighter has a lot of weird stuff to talk about. For example, since it has Honda-sourced door handles, you use a Honda key to get in. But the steering column comes from Ford, so you have to use a Ford key to actually start the engine. The engine, meanwhile, was a 6.2-liter LS3 that Chevrolet used in the Corvette at the time. It’s really a Franken-car, but it’s a amazing Franken-car.

We’re really interested to see how much this Rally Fighter sells for. The price quickly climbed, $100,000 seemed within reach. And again, when Bring a Trailer sold a 3,300-mile Rally Fighter a few months ago, it sold for $75,000. While you wait to find out if this car’s low mileage helps push it into six-figure territory, you can watch Doug’s review of it below:
