This thing has a 1 cylinder hybrid motor that cranks out 300mpg and costs 30,000. Who else wants one?

It's impressive they plan to produce them for $30K. Wonder how good they can freeway merge. I'll wait for the full roll cage and curtain bag options. I'm growing tired of the buy it now receive it in ~year startup marketing.

Change the color of the seats. I like it.
If it doesnt work out as designed, I would put a Busa or a zx14 engine in it.

i think what he meant is the gas hungry 16 seater SUVs. most of the people who own them do not need them. an example is that horrid of a car H2 hummer. they need to start working on more efficient trucks!

They actually have a full roll cage built in, they said it is very similar to the Formula 1 cars cage. It will accelerate to 60 in 10 seconds, and be governed to 95mph (read that in Popular Science).

And ... only small penis losers drive those H2's. Even worse are the ones that buy the sudo-pick-up H2. How freak'n insecure with your manhood do you have to be?!

Found out a friend bought one. Apparently with its three wheels they are classified as a motorcycle. Which means you get to carpool lane them! Brilliant!
