seems interesting, made in USA, can hardly believe features for the price. Site says it's got reverse, but seems like you have to depend on the mirrors. Space-" trunk space will be at least 27″ x 14″ x 10″, "

Having had 2 Messerschmitts. '57used and '59 new.

This depends on price/power/how to fix/weight/because that type of cabin needs air, heat, venting/ dealer network.

I really enjoyed and used my Messerschmitt---so much warmer than my sidecar outfit in winter and...remove front seat you could sleep in it. In the late '50's Germany the motorcycle boom was at end.....The cabin scooter represented better weather protection than bike/scooter and was price competitive with 250cc bikes at about 2400DM.

Somebody in UK in recent years made replical powered by Helix drive train.

And by the way, three wheelers, even pushers have some high speed handling issues----Can-Am has designed it out of their 3 wheelers.

I had a Heinkel in the sixties but I think it would be too underpowered for current use (200cc). The UK replicas were made near to where I live, the chap did some work for me when I had a Pan. He said that the replicas went mostly to Japan. His nameplate was missing last time I passed the place so I can't tell what he's doing now.

That price is unrealistic, or incredibly optimistic. disbelief

I also doubt the gas mileage claims, especially if this thing is capable of the performance claimed.

Question U know I wonder how many drivetrain packages this could be sourced from - Suzuki Alto seems to fit.
The UK has 4 different trims available for the Pixo: N-Tec, Visia, Acenta and Tekna, all available with a 1.0 L Suzuki K10B three-cylinder petrol engine - shared with the Alto and capable of 68 hp (51 kW) and a top speed of 155 km/h (96 mph), reaching 100 km/h in 13.5 seconds. All are five-door hatchbacks, with the option of a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual gearbox,

Ah, here we go from their site - pretty much smokescreen, but answers promised:

Q. Who makes the engine/drive train/brakes etc.?
This is the most popular question through the website by far! We are eager for you to meet all of our supplier partners and are planning an announcement this May. We will have a press conference/release announcing our partners and share that information through the website and Facebook.

Note to those considering getting one:

Ummmm, I wouldn't be in a big hurry to drop that $1,000.00 to reserve one If I were you.

Unless, of course, you have no problem dropping a grand in the casinos, & I think the casinos may have a better percentage on payouts. This project sets off my scam-o-meter!

They're taking reserve payments?
Who do they think they are-Corbin?
Oh wait, those were for about 1/3 of the retail.
