BANGKOK, Thailand – It’s the lifelong dream of many avid car lovers to sketch up plans and design their very own supercar. But seeing the plans come to fruition? That takes extreme dedication. From crafting plans to putting tires on the road, that’s just what Israeli expat Guy Even did — he built his very own supercar with his company G-Motors in Bangkok, Thailand.
“I’ve always wanted to build my own specialty car,” says Guy Even, “so I started to make plans to make my own and it has been a remarkable journey.”
Even’s project started about four years ago when he decided it was the right time to fulfill his lifelong dream to build a car. He travelled around the world for inspiration but he wasn’t entirely satisfied with what he saw; nothing really matched what he was looking to build. Even had a dream and he wasn’t about to compromise.
Even wanted to build an attractive, head-turning car that also boasts the ability to drive everyday. That’s when the idea came to him to do it himself: he started with making plans, then bought a shop and machinery to begin construction on his car.
He also documented his journey and process with photos on his company’s Facebook page. The photos on the page demonstrate the long process from chassis to body and finishing touches.
While Even doesn’t call his sleek supercar a “supercar,” a picture would quickly show it sure looks like one. The car features sleek, aerodynamic and futuristic design whose physique draws inspiration from a Bugatti or Lamborghini.
Even states a supercar is extremely powerful with about 600-700 horsepower. Even’s car is not quite that powerful but is still impressive and more powerful than the average car; it uses an American V8 engine and has 300-320 horsepower making this car a good choice to drive every day.
According to Even, this car wasn’t a one-off. Now that the prototype has been created G-Motors plans to create and sell more calls just like Even’s supercar. Because the car is designed for every day use, it claims to be low maintenance and is strangely a practical choice for the road even though it looks anything but practical.
“It is a really nice, every day car,” states Evens. “And because so many people love it, we’re committed to building more cars for others.”
G-Motors wants everyone to come out and visit his shop and see his creation. Now his dream is building more practical supercars — it’s clear that for Even, dreams are always the start of something bigger.
