The Snaefell Hybrid Car



Quote:
Originally from breganzane
After 10000 hours of hard work, more than 10 years from time to time in the garage and about 15000 Euros spent, the Snaefell was ready to ride!
As you can see, the result is really impressive for a work done by an amateur..
The vehicle is very neat and the finishing is astounding. The general design is quite beautiful, which is quite rare throughout the sidecar production.
While this is a very special vehicle, the Laverda touch is obvious. This is not only the triple engine which does that but probably a smart and hard work on the global design. The rear part recalls the RGS side panels. The glorious triple 1000cc seems magnified in this red dress...
Headlight comes from a Kawasaki 1000 RX bike, the tail lights from a Citro├źn Xantia car.


edit: Forgot to mention posting cuz it's still a neat piece of engineering, even if not practical, but it does remind me of those attachment side seat on motorcycles meant for an additional passenger, but this one's just fancier.

More pics on site..

Top Gear did a news segment on this... and I agree with them, it's quite a nasty deformation. Sure it's quite a feat coming up with such a thing, but they could've used a better design...

Couldn't tell from the pics but is there a front-right tire? Or is this thing like a trike.
Looks like it'd be a bitch to make a turn in that thing. What about backing up? lol. Gotta dig deep while you push back with your feet.
