We dare you to find a vehicle that can better combine off-road
prowess with supercar presence like this 2011 Local Motor Rally
Fighter. And this fuel-injected beast makes sure that its
go-anywhere personality is far more than just an appearance. So for
those who love a vehicle that's just enough on the right side of
road-legal to have a license plate hanging on it, this is you
This car was designed from day one to be quite different. It's always been hard to define what a Rally Fighter is because no other company has built one vehicle that stimulates this much toughness and sleekness all in the first impression. Tall fender lines, well-creased flairs, and a smooth profile were all part of the mission to create a sports coupe with pre-runner credentials. And more than just designed to look like a lifted trail attacker, this one was built like a true Baja machine. That's why the sleek body is a well-crafted mixture of lightweight thermoplastic and carbon fiber body panels over a tubular steel space frame rigid chassis. So while you're the most interesting machine on the road, this one was really built to have its maximum fun when the pavement ends.
Inside, there's seating for four. But considering that there are racing harness for everyone, you absolutely know this is set up to be far more than a commuter machine. Sparco racing seats up front, a dash-mounted fire extinguisher, toggle switches, and a full roll cage let you know this one means business. The grippy Momo steering wheel gives you a fantastic view of the large speed and tach. Plus, all your essential gauges are laid out high on the dash. The metal gated shifter means every shift you make is a purposeful one. But the reason why the Rally Fighter is more than just an off-road toy is the high degree of comfort that's also built into this professional-grade interior. You have an air conditioning, power windows, power locks, electric rear defrost, and keyless entry. There's an iPod in the center that controls features like the satellite navigation and the subwoofer stereo system.
Under the hood is a 6.2-liter fuel-injected LS3 V8. This mixture of small block Chevy robustness with Corvette-level horsepower is the perfect power plant for this unique beast. You can see that it is mounted behind the front axle to improve the center of gravity and also give the front suspension plenty of travel. In fact, when the adjustable suspension is in its highest off-road setting, the Rally Fighter has an impressive 18-inches of full suspension travel. The rear is a Watts-link setup with upper and lower control arms as well as massive internal bypass/external reservoir shocks. Add in the Robby Gordon bead-lock wheels and Goodyear Wranglers reinforced with Kevlar, and you know this one is one trail-ready machine. Plus, features like the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes are welcomed even when you're just driving on the streets.
Few machines are as unique or as capable as the Rally Fighter, and they were only built in limited quantities by the professionals at Local Motors in Arizona. So when you get an opportunity to pick up a ready to run all-around sports machine, you know you need to act fast. Call now!
