Well this is different. The Renew Sports Cars is a Miata Based Kit Car made of HEMP! No that was not a typo. Renew Sports Cars has created an attractive looking kit car using plant based material which is said to be as strong as steel and lighter than fiberglass.
I have to be honest. I do not know anything about this company other than what I have read on their website. From what they say “Renew designs and manufactures exotic, “Ultra-Low Carbon Footprint” (ULCF) Sports Cars. Our manufacturing processes are as close to carbon neutral as is presently possible . . . resulting in very green cars. In addition only a limited number of these hand made hemp cars will be built in 2015.
The Renew Sports Car uses a 1990-1997 Mazda Miata Chassis as the donor. The kit price is a whopping $19,500 or you can opt to have them build the car using your donor car for $37,000 .
If you are into the “Green” movement and have money to burn this car might be an option for you. It is not horrible looking but I am not sure that it will ever really catch on
