Carved out for its niche.
Remember the classic Bond Bug three-wheeler - that trendy fibreglass orange cheese wedge of a two-seater?
Well, the latest incarnation of the three-wheeled two-seater is the Vandenbrink Carver, a kind of car/bike hybrid. Between the rear wheels is a 65bhp 660cc turbocharged four-cylinder motor. The passenger and driver sit in line in a pod that leans into the corner.
The tilting is controlled by a Dynamic Vehicle Control system that monitors speed and front-wheel angle to achieve the best balance.
Top speed is around 110mph and 0-62mph takes 8.2 seconds, which is a lot more than the Bond Bug could do.
Prices start at pounds 20,500
