Looks like a Can-Am Spyder with an enclosed body plopped on it. Slightly snow sprinkled roads aren't really like driving on snowy roads. Put 8" of snow on that road and let's see how it does.

The most baffling aspect of this "study" to me, is it's three wheel design. Why do the designers keep returning to this failed strategy? No three wheeled automobile has ever succeeded, Dymaxion, Robin, Messerschmidt all come to mind, but like a dog returning to it's vomit, these guy keep coming back. What am I missing?

I have to think that with today's advanced technology they have overcome the problems of the past. I think the main problem was that in the past a three wheel car was not able to tilt into a corner. I think they have put that technology into this car.

Ah yes, Will, The new gravitational force transducer technology... same technology as used in High speed fighter aircraft, allowing planes to make ninety degree turns at 700 MPH in 6 feet! :-)
