The 2010 Autosport International Show saw the introduction of a new lightweight British sports car created by SDR Sports Cars. Despite the similar outward appearance, the WR3 V-Storm is less like the Ariel Atom and more like a McLaren F1 with its formula style center seat driving position for the pilot with room for two just behind them. According to SDR managing director Simon Dickens, he "wanted to develop something new and exciting that gets the pulse racing and offers the thrills of a [Lotus] Seven, but with dramatic modern styling and the capability of carrying three people."

Just like the four door GT car is becoming a staple of the high end performance market, the WR3 V-Storm takes the high performance kit car segment and sands it on its head by offering incredible performance thanks to its four cylinder boxer engine from the Japanese automaker Subaru pumping out over 300 HP with the ability to carry up to three passengers. Meanwhile the sub 1500 pound curb weight allows the tube frame track day special to rocket from 0 to 60 MPH in under four seconds.

Well the only flaw that I see with it is that it may not be the safest race car out there. I don’t really see that much protection for the driver except for the few metals around him. What happens if the car flips? His helmet would not be enough to protect him.

It may look just an imitation, but the judgment should be made when they start running. For me, I think these cars are faster than any cars of the same kind.

cool car, well a 300HP is not bad for this custom sports car. IMO this car will perform well because it has the engine of subaru.
