Price for a a Hurricane Roadsters kit
« on: March 04, 2024, 09:37:42 PM »
I had a viewer on Pete's Snake Bite Kit, say that Hurricane gave him an estimate for a new kit of $40,000.00. Sounds kinda high, anyone heard anything else?

Don't expect kits to be available from them. Here is the response from the new Hurricane..."So we are moving away from doing kit sales so we have more control over the overall quality of the build. Pricing for a turn key-minus car with IRS is going to vary quite a bit depending on what options you choose. But barebones with standard options will probably run you somewhere around that $70k mark."

Interesting, a turn key minus may be a great way to go, it will be interesting to how this works out.

Well, to each his/her own, but I'm truly disappointed. I'm still working on hm-1023, and was hoping to be able to get another one as soon as this one's finished. I was thinking that with the excellent job that Pete did recording and sharing his build (see; "Pete's snakebite kit" on the 'tube), and new owners, that Hurricane was poised to become a MUCH bigger player in the replica world. Their body is second to none, and add the independent rear chassis underneath, it's hard to imagine there not being a line of people waiting to order. I guess all we can do is wish them well.
