hes done mockups with Toyota, i know.
but i think the tooling they have for the bodies was the original brazilian stuff.
one of the reasons he didnt use Toyota engines when they started the ICON, was Toyota wouldnt sell them to him. I'm not sure why. they are strict with JIT manufacturing and 10 motors for him would be a PITA, but they work with lotus, and thats not exactly huge volume.
theres a story here somewhere.
