You may have seen homemade replicas of supercars before; anybody can purchase a stylish body and accessories then construct a complete vehicle using the chassis and components from an economy car. The design of the Renovatio made its first appearance this way – as a kit called the “Attack Roadster” that could be completed essentially on top of a Honda Accord from the early 1990s

However Slovenian racing driver Aljosa Tušek had bigger plans for his vision of the design.

Adding a high-performance suspension system and V8 engine from an Audi RS4, Mr. Tušek has given the Attack body some bite to its bark, and effectively created the first sports car to be built in Slovenia. “We have engineered this joy into our car," he says.

With an acceleration of 0 to 62 m.p.h. in 3.7 seconds and a top speed of nearly 200 m.p.h., the Renovatio now has performance to justify the extreme styling.
