red car is typical of those owners they cant drive.

The smart needs a chopped top so it looks SMART.

Its why I always loved pro race drivers that drove sports cars and left the mercedes at home for the wife.Because then you had a car and a machine represented properly.
Nothing more annoying here in the states but seeing high end cars tooling in the slow lane at 50 miles an hour.

but thats a car motor ,I like the high tech bike motors in two seater sports cars.I like looking at the drive train conversion engines have so much gran prix in them its just cool.Multi engine are even cooler but timing and sinc drive train up is a problem.....i think its where modern final drives and all wheel drive can be put to good use.

all points taken Geetoo,legends have been around a while now and they are single seaters, dwarf cars.The mini Hayabusa is a tube frame fiberglass car.Not a steel car with a motor trans plant, the mini is front engine front wheel drive the hayabusa car is tube frame midengine rear drive car.they have fast lotus seven knock offs with cycle engines that go very well.A swiss designer in the 80s built a rear engine car with two sixcyclinder bike engines so he had a 12 cylinder car that was cool his name is franco sbarro.A french designer did a similar thing in a more exotic looking car that had a beach utility theme, it had a wet bike built into it .But the car looked like a lamborghini countach.

just cool ideas taking bike motors and using them in light efficient cars.
Longevity isnt an issue as they are aimed at a second or third family car or personal transport on occasion like a true sports car was designed for, originally a "hobby" car and not dailey transport.

most of the machines in uk are tube frame fiber glass cars that use bike engines.
The coupling and drive trans to make it work in a four wheel vehicle, is where uk has taken the lead.

I guess that just cuts to the quipe,doesnt it.
Needs a designer now that can add vissual impact so it looses its snowmobilish look.Over all bulkiness needs parring nice with skinny wheels smaller nose,not so bulky body work.if it were more skeletul(spelling?) the idea would be cooler.but I like this type of three wheeler over a two rear wheel three wheeler.
