The only four-wheeled Stalker

~Real Stalker~If we look at the figure of the following car, of course, initially it isn't easy to guess. Besides it was rare to shown to public, the car also having an unusual appearance if traced to general sports cars. Yes, at first glance it looks like a Lamborghini, while at the front it has a grille similar to a BMW, but if we seen to the back similar to a Corvette.
The unique shaped car named 'Stalker' is built by Jim Michaud based on the 1984 Pontiac Fiero. (Picture from: RCNMag)
And with an appearance like that, if it was a work of art, then the car can be said such as Pablo Picasso's work of art whose known for his use of 'found art' in creating sculptures out of ordinary objects. So what car is this actually? 
Jim Michaud's Stalker applied the position of the steering wheel is in the middle (like the McLaren F1 has), so the the car driver will be flanked by 2 passenger seats on the left and right sides. (Picture from: Fiero.nl)
Well, as quoted of the RCNMag, this unique looking mid-engined car is the one-off model made by an American car modifier named Jim Michaud of Phoenix, Arizona. He employed a similar technique on this menacing one-off design called the Stalker.

In the first You may imagined that the car was built on the Lamborghini Diablo chassis, given its appearance which is said to be similar to the car made by the Italian raging bull manufacturer. But who would have thought that the unique car was actually built on the 1986 Pontiac Fiero's chassis is extended nearly a foot in lenghth, and then converted to a center-steering setup.
Jim Michaud's Stalker's bodywork resembled as a Diablo replica, but modified in such a way on the back by combined with a 2002 Corvette rear section and coupled with the Toyota Celica GT headlights on the front. (Picture from: RCNMag)
As previously mentioned, the car made by Jim Michaud has the bodywork resembled as a Diablo replica, but modified in such a way on the back by combined with a 2002 Corvette rear section and coupled with the Toyota Celica GT headlights on the front.
Uniquely, inside the cabin also used cut-down truck footrests on the passanger's sides might be for convenience purpose. (Picture from: RCNMag)
Due to the position of the steering wheel is in the middle (like the McLaren F1 has), so the the car driver will be flanked by 2 passenger seats on the left and right sides. Uniquely, inside the cabin also used cut-down truck footrests on the passanger's sides might be for convenience purpose. The custom air cleaner for the 350 Chevy is fabricated from two-inch exhaust tubing.
It seems that the Jim Michaud's Stalker is still powered by the Pontiac Fiero engine, which is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Iron Duke engine only poked out 92 horsepower. (Picture from: RCNMag)
Your eyes might deceive you in another way: Even though the photos seem to show several versions of a customized exotic, each with a different color of paint, it’s actually the same vehicle in each shot. Depending on where you stand and how the sun is shining, it can appear to be copper, violet or indigo. So it’s not only a shape-shifter, but a chameleon as well.

But unfortunately there is no information about the engine, from the pictures it seems that the car is still powered by the Pontiac Fiero engine, which is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder Iron Duke engine only poked out 92 horsepower (sorry if wrong).🙏 Or maybe some of you know the engine used by this car and willing to write it in the comments column below.👍 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | RCNMAG | EXOTICCARCOLLECTION ]
