We don't have anything against the T-Rex, but... you can keep it. Whenever we enter the market for a three-wheeled vehicle, we'll take this baby designed by New Zealander Alex Hodge. A fiberglass shell rides on an alloy chassis that connects the three wheels. For motive power there's the heart of a Honda RC51 sportbike, and the 10,000 rpm, 120 rear-wheel-horsepower would give the thing a theoretical top speed of 145 mph. When it's red light time, disc brakes are fitted up front and double-up in the back. Sure, you can't buy it yet, but we're not looking for a trike at the moment, either. And we can wait. So Alex, get to work, please...

      dub dueces?

      Its cool for sure, however, it also doesn't exist. Its a computer model. Now if he can find somebody to actually design and build it (he just does industrial design), that would rock.

      This looks like a chopped-off RX-8 with the rear tapered and the front-end more stream-lined.
      Oh, and I like it.

      Let's see... No bumpers, wipers or mirrors, illegal height lights, zero rear vision. Typical study hall concept. I want one.

        All it takes is one state to require the equipment....

        It would be classed as a motorbike so most of those limitations would not apply.

      I like it. It's different. Futuristic. Is there at least any room to carry a backpack?

      The hopped up wheelchair looks cool!

      It seems like I'm the only one who thinks the front is bland and boring. Also pros over car/bike are dwarfed by its respective cons.
      The only thing that makes this vehicle interesting is that it has 3 wheels, which is far from enough for me.

      Can I have none PLZ?

      looks like a chode
      • 6 Years Ago
      Awesome.

      reminds me of the Lamborghini Embolado concept.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I thought the front end (which would be half of this thing) looked exactly like a Lambo. Still pretty slick, but ill be there is Lambo inspiration.

      that is sooo tight...
        • 6 Years Ago
        YEAH!!! So tight, that the only thing you could POSSIBLY improve on would be to give it an electric motor instead. You could give it a more flashy name, too like "ZAP ALIAS". Yeah. Wouldn't that be nice?
