I would love to hear a rational argument as to why this would not work.
Add light weight seats to the equation. And the base price could be with no AC and no radio. The engine can stay the same. It is already a very powerfull engine and with taking 200-300lbs of weight, it will be even more lively. But a car like this is less profitable than making special editions with frozen paints..
