It lives! Dennis Palatov dropped us a note to let us know the amazing Hayabusa powered DP1 prototype he’s been building over the past 4 years has fired up and moved under power. If you’ve followed the build process over the past months you already know what a jaw dropping piece he’s put together.
Dennis notes that although the prototype is currently running the stock Hayabusa powerplant, after a bit more testing and development, he’ll be reengineering the car with the Hayabusa V8 plus a carbon fiber chassis for production.
The photos give you an idea of how small this car really is, the size of a large go kart, albeit with ridiculous power output. The first trip to the track with the engine running in anger should be quite the experience. I like this a lot.
