nice little go-kart.. i would like to see how small in person it really is.. i heard there's a max. height requirement on it.. think it was 6'3 or something.. lol

i'd take that and a Ford GT with a Ferrari 360 on the side...

It really is one of the smallest cars I have seen. Very low to the ground. The old one had a no-nonsense plain aluminum interior. This one at least has somewhat of a more practical interior.

But I am sure that it is still not capable of beign a daily driver.

Cheers ... Ian :)

I would have, but I just got something new.

BTW, I just noticed this BMW Z1 too!



I always wanted one of these cars, but they were only available in Europe. There are a bunch that are in the US, but not one that is in this good condition with such low miles. It really is a nice looking car in person, even though it is over 12 years old.

Cheers ... Ian :)

The board is a bit flakey tonight and went down long enough for me not to be able to edit my post. I meant to post this pic for the above post ...



The doors are the coolest part. They go straight up and down to open and close. They don't open outwards.

Cheers ... Ian :)

Yeah, from the side, the front end looks a little Miata-ish. But not when you look at it from the front.

It is possible, since it was designed for Europe only, they didn't really have to worry about that issue. But my guess is that the motors are strong enough to break a small bit of ice. covering the cracks.

of course it can be a daily driver! Some people are just more dedicated to cars than others :D It's all about how hard you try

Hell, has anyone ever seen a Radical SR2 Prosport? That car is road legal in the UK...now THERE'S and impractical car.
