    According to the builder there was an incident when it was enroute to SEMA along with his 308 from last year and neither will make it. No other details provided.

    I think so too, Ken. It was privately built by Yellow Magic. It didn't finish at Daytona in 2000 due to a fuel system malfunction. It raced again at Daytona in 2001 and finished 30th.

    Here are two other photos I have...

    It looks like all body panels including the doors were fabricated. This is better seen when the the photos I originally posted are viewed together...

    I can answer a couple of the questions.

    Wheel spacers, they were simply for mockup and fender sculpting to push the wheels out to where they would live in space. They made custom wheels with massive offset, also not the right way to do it, but hey he's building a show car and probably wont be driving it much.

    The sculpting process done right is only executed on one side to get the design. Then its scanned and digitally mirrored, then milled out to get an exact mirrored copy and molds taken off that. Design and execution while not how I would of done it is aside the point, but I appreciate what they are doing. The guy doing the sculpting is a buddy of mine, and co-worker, we both work for one of the big three as automotive sculptors.

    Pretty disappointed with whatever happened to both cars for them to not get finished. I did see he is selling both turbo setups off the cars, so something major happened.

    I like the way the frunk is ventilated. I hate it when my makeup kit gets hot.

    Saw that too, really curious as to what happened. Been following the build since the beginning and let's just say the way things ended are quite anti-climactic.

    I was actually planning on keeping this under wraps until we had more media.
    Though it is tragic that the build isn't finished and will not be at SEMA this year we worked with Button to get the perfect setup on both vehicles.
    He was inspired by the F355 Super GT cars for the design work and moved forward from there.

    Here are some more pictures of his build from both his instagram and other media sources.
