Click above to view more of the Ferrari Hyabusa trike

There have been countless attempts to translate the Ferrari spirit from four wheels to two, ranging from sport bikes to choppers and everything in between. But this is the first we've seen with three wheels. That's right, in case your eyes couldn't adjust from the endless see of crimson contours, what you're looking at is a Ferrari trike.

Mirroring the "styling" of a Scuderia Ferrari F1 car, this one-off trike was spotted at the banzai Tokyo Auto Salon by the same people who brought us the no-less-bonkers Lamborghini ATV. Based around a 1.3-liter Suzuki Hayabusa engine and frame, this (thankfully) unique example was built by Trike Japan in order to showcase what they can do. We certainly hope the rest of their portfolio is a bit more tasteful than this showpiece, but we won't be holding our breath. If you're feeling a little masochistic today, have a look in the gallery below and the pair of videos after the jump.

      Wow. It needs the rear wing to counter the huge amount of fail it must produce at high speeds.

      And no, showing slides of the Ferrarabusa next to a normal trike does not improve its street cred.

      Wow, so I'll ride the girl and not the trike. K thnks.

      It would have been amazing if it were a regular busa donning the scuderia livery, but a trike? You gotta be kidding me.

        There's nothing scary about ABBA. It's just...

        Petrifyingly humiliating.

      I would ride it if I get to keep the girl.

      It's ugly but I bet it'd be fun to ride.

      I was staring at that pic for quite a while thinking 'how the hell did that person get in the trike?!' before i realized it was just a helmet on the seat!

      ps. the video helped clarify it..
