Yes and it's been driven by Joey Lagano, the Nascar race car driver!

None of the body panels are the same as the old one, an all new vehicle!
Complete space frame now.

Now I just need a 3D model of it.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right, if you can figure that out!

Beautiful car, but they are going out of their way to avoid revealing the body is fiberglass instead of aluminum like the original.

I went through their whole site looking for what the body is made of, and all I found was one title mentioning "composite body" without further details. I actually had to look up a Car & Driver article to get that info.

Composite means built up in layers of fiberglass mat, not sprayed chopped fiberglass.
BTW, the space-frame is steel tubing covered with 46 aluminum panels rivited on under the body.

They also have a all metal Hot Rod for the first time:
