Looks like a cross between a Can-am Spyder and a Motortrike Stallion.

I want to see what our roads would do to it. I would think a semi passing it would blow it off the road. It seems like it would be scary on a highway where people can't seem to even respect a triaxle dump truck. Good Luck, Rick

This has all been done before.  My brother has a a couple of these little 3 wheeled cars that were made in the late 1970's called a Freeway.  My dad has one also.

Maybe it was just the wrong time back then?........

History just repeats itself.

 

In the 70s they invented a car that would run on water!  But the government wouldn't let them produce it.

Kind of like the Fish Carburetor that made mid '70's Chevy pickups with full time 4 wheel drive get 40-50 miles per gallon.  

The oil companies bought its patent rights to "further its research and development"

Thats the last anyone heard of the Fish Carburetor.  :wallbanging:

In the 50s there was a tiny three wheeled BMW. I think it was called an Isetta. A neighbor had one but found that he didn't like it in tracffic around town.

WWII aircraft used water injection for combat emergency power. Good Luck, Rick

They have been hyping this car for a few years now.  As yet I don't think they have built more than a couple.  They will take your money though.  I'm thinking big scam myself.

They are only a year or two out from full scale production - just like five years ago.

I would love to have one, but I'm afraid they wouldn't last on our old roads, the single back tire wouldn't last long because it wouldn't be in "the path" and the gravel would chew it to nothing.

Although, it would be a great car for in town.

 

I bet the little thing would get a lot better millage with a little diesel in it. Imagine what it would get on Bio Diesel!
