Shame they couldn't pick something slightly less shagged out as a base vehicle - D3's are below 5k now.
Well I think the pricing has killed the idea straight away then!
I think to modify a D3 as a kit car build the company would have to do a lot of hand holding on the electronics and control side. Can you imagine the average person getting in a mess trying to rewire it and have the kit and knowhow to clear the faults, code bits out etc etc. That means the kit car company need to sell pre made plug in looms and software updates or an ecu modifying service which means the company need to know how to do all this not just weld up frames in tin hut on an abandoned airfield... or out source it which is more complexity and cost.
For £24k unless you want to build one and customize it for a particular purpose you'd just go buy the 4x4 van with a heater, a/c and can be fixed by any garage in the country.
What they might be better off doing is offering the parts that people can't easily make themselves like the preformed cab cage, special steering links etc and let people do the other bits themselves.
