Canada's Prehistoric Predator Gets Longer Arms
If the Campagna T-Rex 14R wasn't your cup of tea, the Canadian maker of high-performance trikes has just introduced a smooth new arrival that might change your tune – the T-Rex 16S. Unlike its sibling which is powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder screamer sourced from a Kawasaki Ninja, the new Campagna boasts a slightly larger 1.6-liter six-cylinder sourced from BMW. Power is down just a bit, but torque improves (rated output is 160 horsepower and 129 pound-feet), meaning the 1,100-pound-o
The Bremach T-Rex certainly looks like a serious truck, but it takes more than looks to convince us that the all-electric Bremach is able to stand up to the gas-powered Ford Super Dutys and Chevy Silverado HDs of the world. Bremach certainly has the pedigree to back up the T-Rex's work truck claims. Bremach is the offspring of two heavy-duty Italian companies: Aeronautics Macchi and Fratelli Brenna. Aeronautics Macchi is an Italian military equipment manufacturer that has built more than 7,000
It's been a few years since we've seen electrified versions of the Campagna T-Rex, a 3-wheeler with a 1,352 cc four-cylinder engine with nearly 200 horsepower. In late 2007 at the Electric Vehicle Symposium, a company called Silence Inc. showed off an electric vehicle based on the T-Rex called the PT2 that was capable of hitting over 125 miles per hour with a range of 125-250 miles.
I first wrote a post about the all-electric T-Rex motorcycle/three-wheeler back in February. As we said earlier then, this vehicle can go around 125 mph and has high-end range of 250 miles (125 is the low end, which shows how much of an impact a driving style can have). These Canadian-built vehicles will cost around $50,000 CDN (almost $50,000 US). The T-Rex is actually the name of the non-electric version and the EV is called the Silence PT2. Still, there are two of these blue beauties on the s
