The Beast is not a Locost but it is definitely Low Cost. This is my Buddies car it was/is a Mazda Miata with the majority of the panels removed and a turbo added. Today the car had 5 year old corded street tires so it was a bit of a handful to drive but sooo much fun.

Did that car spend any time in CT, probably circa 2008-2010? I remember a flat black, diamond plate clad, former Miata at a Bristol autocross, and the owner called it the "Beast."

Is there more than one? I'll see if I can track down a picture of it on the autox site.

He did live up north somewhere not sure where so it is probably the same car.
