I took my boys over to Local Motors right here in Phoenix off of I-10 a few miles south of Chandler blvd to see the legendary (in my house) Rally Fighter.
Rally Fighter was designed by Sangho Kim, who entered his design for the car into a competition created by Local Motors. The Local Motors community voted, selecting Kim's design as the winner. Kim was awarded $20,000 and takes the title as the designer of the Rally Fighter. Kim attended the renowned Pasadena Art Center College of Design, and it shows in the incredibly cool car he helped create.
You can acquire your own Rally Fighter for $75,000, and you'll get to spend 6 days with a partner and an expert guide at the Local Motors facility building your vehicle.
This car, and the community builder concept that brought it about, are killer ideas. This is pure collaborative innovation. How great that it's happening right here in the Valley of the Sun.
