Denmark: Crowdsourced Rally Fighter makes quick pit stop

With an impressive 6.2 litre engine and 430 horsepower, the Rally Fighter car can be tailor-made to fit the driver and blend in with his or her personality. Although it already radiates its own sense of individual charisma, the Rally Fighter vehicle made by the American company Local Motors, is claimed by the manufactures to include a visit to the production plant in Arizona where the potential customer can spend six days designing the vehicle themselves.

Jay Rogers, the head of Local Motors, also uses crowdsourcing to help design the vehicles so that the online community have a say. An art student from Pasadena named Sangho Kim created the design for the Rally Fighter, which is currently in production and so far 60 of these off-roading vehicles have been sold.

Costing €80,000 (£67,703), the Rally Fighter car will also complete in the 3,000 mile (4,800 kilometre) trek across 13 countries as part of the Gumball 3000 annual event, now in its 15th year. This event is not a race, the Gumball 3000 is more of a mobile car display with no time keeping or first place winners.

This year the rally began in Copenhagen on May 18 and will end in Monte Carlo. Along the way the drivers will make pit stops at chosen destinations, like Denmark, with some of the most unique supercars in the world partaking in this event.
