at least the battery slot/cut-outs under the chassis aren't "solid". looks better than cell slots

That is the MSRP price. The retail price would be very attractive.

Sweet ride.... love the black with chrome chamfered edges.. matches the Hudy station perfect. Has it been confirmed that the front end bopts up to the 12R5.2? Looks like a hybrid may be in the future. .. Then Ehrlich and Maybell can both share me.

Very nice looking car! I like the idea that parts can be used from AE if you can't get your hands on the real deal. (if that is true)

Yes, had check the pre-production sample, the r5 front end plastic parts will bolt onto the VBC front end without issue.
