One of the most exotic modern cars out there, I’ve always been a big fan of the Kamala, although more so of the original Kamala RT than the second “Futuro” version that swapped in a more sci-fi look for many of the panels, especially in the front end where the biggest changes were made. Personally I feel there’s something not quite right with the lines of the Futuro, as the main pod of the body doesn’t transition cleanly into the nose. Still, a striking car, to say nothing of high performance — it does 0-60 in under four seconds, and is built on a custom tube chassis with primarily Ford components.
The Kamala was first manufactured by Dax, better known for its successful Lotus 7 and Cobra kits, who made about thirty of them before dumping the project which was not able to generate enough sales to be viable. A dedicated company took over, and created this Futuro update, but also was not able to stay afloat, and the Kamala seems now to be permanently out of production unfortunately. If anyone knows more, or knows the status of the molds and jigs, please drop me a line.
Bruce in the UK recently purchased the wild Kamala Cars Futuro demonstrator (the one you may have seen on Top Gear being driven by Jeremy Clarkson), one of the only ones that exists, and is working to get it back on the road. He needs to replace the ball joints and needs assistance in identifying them so he can order the parts. Drop him a line at email@example.com if you recognize them or have any more information on the car.
