We're having trouble coming up with an adequate set of adjectives to describe our opinions of the new Goblin WolfSpyder. On one hand, the idea of an enclosed three-wheeled vehicle that's capable of returning excellent fuel mileage and performance is intriguing. On the other hand, this is one incredibly ridiculous looking vehicle that offers little reason to justify its nearly $20,000 price tag (plus optional heat, air conditioning and overhead canopy) on top of the $15,449 Can-Am Spyder donor vehicle.

If you do happen to enjoy its cringe-inducing looks – complete with non-functional rear wing that Goblin claims "may improve visible appearance in traffic" – and you happen to think it's worth the asking price (seriously?), you can order the kit now and see it on your doorstep via the friendly neighborhood UPS man in 12-18 weeks.

      IMO Techart should have developed and produced the kit charged a little more for a functional body kit.

      No. Way.

      Look at the distance between the rear wheel and the front wheels. That's about twice the distance that a Can-Am Spyder has. Not only that, but if you look inside the "cabin" of this vehicle, it's an F1 style seating position, really low with a steering wheel. Unless you can "easily" chop and reweld your Can-Am's frame, this is not a real product.

      I wanted to scream "Photoshop" at the top of my lungs, but it doesn't even have the looks of a 'shop... It looks like someone used MSPaint to mix an Enzo front end, plane tail section, and a Spyder rear end.

      Hmm.. I gotta say that I like the looks of it, but the price tag dampens the enthusiasm lol...

      The original Spyder looks like a snowmobile on wheels. I'll take this one any day over the original.

      Well lets see. The Trex is a trike that costs 50-60,000.00 This is a conversion for over 10,000.00 less. HUMMMMMMMMM. I cannot say the design is big on me but for under 35,000 total it makes it accessable.

      Does it still just have handlebars or does it have a steering wheel?
