Not to be a wet blanket, but financing something that is essentially a toy, is not a good financial move.
Save your pennies, skip a couple coffees, beers, and dinners out, and buy when you can actually afford it. The good thing is that you don't have to buy it all at once. You can basically build the entire car without an engine and transmission, or wheels and tires. Paint and bodywork, a major expense, can be put off indefinitely and you can still drive the car.

28.99% - WOW!

Let's say you borrow $40,000. That is a low-ish budget for a pretty good car.
You end up paying $76,166. You are paying for two cars, but you only get one.
