Reserve a Rally Fighter

Local Motors, the Wareham, MA startup building crowd-sourced cars, has announced that starting at noon Wednesday, customers can go online to get in line to buy a Rally Fighter, the company’s first production vehicle. The $50,000 car, which we’ve described in the past as “half muscle car, half dune buggy,” contains a 265-horsepower, 3.0-liter, clean diesel BMW engine. Buyers can put down $99 today to buy a number in line, put down $5,000 later to lock in a build date, and pay the remaining $44,901 on delivery.
