Thanks for your interest in PC010 ST! Due to a last minute logistical change, we've updated our company and product name on our crowdfunding campaign.
All aspects of the project remain the same, but instead of Predator's, we are releasing the car as Egoista Motors.
The car name has also changed from PC010 ST to EM01 Stradale.

ORIGINAL POST, DEC. 9, 7:34 A.M.: An Italian company is taking pre-orders on a street-legal, formula-style, one-seat kit car available fully electric or in a hybrid version.
Reggio Emilia, Italy-based Predator's Ltd., which bills itself as a developer of Formula One race cars, believes its PC010 ST will give every-day drivers a chance to experience the thrill of these vehicles (within posted speed limits, one presumes).
Speaking of that, the company claims its new cars can go 0 to 60 mph in three seconds flat and exceed speeds of 180 mph. A stainless-steel roll bar will protect drivers in a high speed rollover, Predator's adds.
"Racing is a passion of mine, and these cars are part of my identity," says Predator's co-founder Luca Fazzi in the announcement of an Indiegogo campaign for potential buyers. "Working on developing the prototype for this car was so exciting for me because now we can share our passion with a much wider community."
* Formula one style vehicle to be 100% street legal internationally
* 0-60 mph in 3 seconds
* More than 180 MPH
* Li-Ion battery / Hybrid Engine, up to 280 miles autonomy
* 100% electric and hybrid versions available
Here's what it may look like to drive one:
