    Hmm, i drove a 3 wheeled city car in San Fransisco and it had an evil tendancy to want to roll over and kill me. It basically handled like they say the corvette does.

    It will be interesting to see where that design goes. It "looks" unstable with the narrow front, but doesn't seem to be unstable in the video clip. They sound like space ships.

    @.@ kind of baffled. If you look at the designer's resumes, it looks like they are good enough to know not to do that. Maybe they aren't serious like you say, more focused on efficiency and have no realistic expecations on the car doing anything but drags.
