Ron Champion’s original book was followed up with
“Build Your Own Sports Car: On a Budget” (ISBN 1-84425-391-0)
by Chris Gibbs.
The subject car differs most significantly from the original in that it has an independent rear suspension. Additionally, the car was designed using CAD software, eliminating the measurement errors inherent to the original design. Other additions to the original Locost design include information for fabricating a roll-bar and advice on using engines with Fuel Injection.
