The F9 would be on the top of the list to but it would create 100k for sure. I'd want to put in a bmw v10 and DCT for the power plant.

did you see the BWM V10 in a datsun Z that B is for build did?  Looks like a fun car.   I do like that engine even though it could make things expensive.   

But honestly if I had $100 to spend I'd really have to go with a Gated Ferrari or Lamborghini.   I think those manual cars are going to keep going up in price.

So help me, nothing those guys build is actually usable.  Zero consideration to engineering at all.

I watch sometimes, but mostly because itís like a slow motion train wreck.

Without question...

Those, or the Superlite will easily exceed $100K if done right.
Not sure you could even do a budget build for that.
Factory Five claims that most GTMs cost under 50k to build.

Now, I don't believe that for a second, but I think having 70k to spend on supplies and a drive train is super doable. The major downside is that it's damn near a tube-frame racecar with a less-than-impressive interior jammed in, but in reality so are most Lambos.

An aquaintance of mine has a GTM with a Mast Motorsports 427, it was a 10 yr and probably at least 100k project.  It turns heads for sure though

Now I'm obsessing over Godzilla...  1200awhp, drive it in the winter, haul small kids in rear.  Get 8mpg on E85 sounds like a winner to me! 

RX7 may be up for sale in spring boys!

1200 AWHP and quarterly engine and transmission rebuilds.   Yeah, sounds like lots of fun.
