exactly my thought and it only took 2mins including drinking coffee and riding at gspot with the new wheels.

And it only takes about 18 hours to fully assemble a car. The raw materials cant cost more than R20k. We're being screwed over hey!

Ex works factory cost is usually around 10% of retail price, depending on what margins they run.

RADDEST EVER !!! SUPER PROUD OF YOU GUYS ;)

Have watched the process in person folks and is a humbling experience to see my fellow countrymen doing what has been traditionally believed to be impossible and not viable. Well, there you have it! They sure are two local heroes and I'm super proud to sell, race and ride "HANDGEMAAK".

 

Big UPS to Nico, Stefan & Crew - yeeeeehaaaaa
