So will it fall apart when driven, however looks considerably well built for a foam structure. Any idea on the weight.

Massive wheels.

It's a foam , glass fiber composite construction, nothing new. This type of construction is used in light aircraft.

it doesn't look like the body is being made entirely out of PU foam. I visited that link and it appeared like the guy was applying PU foam on top of what looked like a metal base. PU was used for styling.

Check out the picture.

Looks like the bodywork of a CL transmogrified into the gawdiest thing I've seen. Strangely though, I kinda like it :o (sans the wheels and goblet-like gear stick)! Shahbaash to Lithuanian power!

If only the guy had worn a mask while working on the car, i think it might have come out looking better !
