What did i see today??????

Post  mtbeerwah on Sun 22 Jan 2017, 9:39 pm

Riding along, a little bit day dreaming, and did a double take on....a thing going in the other direction.

At first I thought it was a CAN AM SPYDER, but no!!!!

It looked like a Spyder, three wheeler, but was sit in, car style, not sit on, Spyder style.

If I was going for something like that, and ADR approved, I`d go an Ariel Atom, cause that's what it resembled, but a three wheeler.

Anyone know????

Reliant Robin or Messerschmitt KR200? Both very old.

Paul, your almost on the money. Polaris Slingshot would be the closest thing it looked like.

I can`t be certain, but this thing looked like a single seat thing, not dual like the Polaris.

Just imagine this Ariel Atom, but a single seat three wheeler. (Dual front wheels, not rear)

Ok, just looked up the Polaris Slingshot, and saw it from different angles, from allot of photos, and I think that's what I saw.

I see power transfer, and handling problem with that design.

If they`re allowing that on the road, then they should allow the Atom in Australia, if they don`t already. I got no idea???
I`d go the Atom any day over the Polaris. The Atom would shit on it, in handling, and power delivery.

Well, at least I now know what it was.
Thanks Paul, well spotted.

A quick google and I can't find anything that suggests it is currently available in Australia.
A lot of talk from 2014-2015 about it being a slim chance
