T-Rex on tourEnlarge Photo
The T-Rex is the latest in lightweight cars that trade luxury amenities (i.e. anything that’s not the bare minimum) to maximize its 187hp so that it can do the run to 60mph in just 3.3 seconds – faster than a lot of current supercars. The T-Rex puts its power down through three wheels and a six-speed sequential gearbox that even has a reverse gear, further cementing its image as a bike/car cross-over. It even uses a 1.4L Kawalsaki engine, getting the power and frugality of a bike engine, but the practicality of a two seater car. The light weight of the car is achieved through a mix of carbon fibre and fiberglass elements.
The car is built in Canada, but will be hitting the UK on a promotional tour, and will even be seen at the Piccolino Restaurant, so if your in the Virgina Water area you may want to check it out. The car is expected to be in the region of around £30,000 and we think that a cheap two-seater that does 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds is definitely something to look out for, even if it does have a bit of a silly name.
