The Fascar was first announced by Lam Motorsports during a press release in January 2018. Production of the vehicle had already begun prior to the press release, and the vehicle was immediately available for online order following the press release. The vehicle is sold exclusively through online order, however, Lam Motorsports has several showroom floors that allow customers to test drive the vehicle.
