A special thanks to BigFoot for posting the poll, I was having trouble with that yesterday and couldn't do it.

Maybe my browser REFUSED to post a poll for this... "car".

AFAIK, it's classified as a heavy quad, nor a car. Still, it's as cool as a root canal.

The epitome of bad design and bad engineering all thinly
disguised by a flimsy smearing of eco bull kaka.

Dire, dire, dire.

France is full of Quadricycles. None of them are that bad.

A car that isn't a car.

An electric vehicle with hardly any battery life. It can't even reach most of Britains speed limits (although it bimbles around towns and cities happily enough I s'pose)

And if anything crashes into it, you'll probably lose your legs, if not your life. In fact you're probably safer on a motorbike.

Seriously uncool.

Please tell me why this is the "coolest car ever", because I just can't wrap my head around that...

I mean, you drive a 156 V6, so you can't really be insane.

Awful contraption.

If that is the future of motoring I will start using the bus.

hmmm, i'm not sure.....i may have to think about it for a while.....

you see the argument stands that if there are more of these on the road then that means the petrol supplies will last longer, this giving me more time to enjoy my Alfas.....

However, it does look like a pile of steaming kack though

i could knock up a better looking and probably better build quality car with a few sheets of mdf some pram wheels and a rubber band for a motor (it would most likely be quicker and safer too)

just look at the pic of it next to the bmw and imagine what would happen in a crash

edit

the video says it all

Actually, in some European countries, it's classified as a heavy quad. So, in answer to your question, no.
