Default Vanderhall Venice: A New 3 Wheeler

It's all in the beholder but my eye finds this VV sexier and nicer than the Slingshot. Base model is $29k premium model is $59k.

More pics at the link above. One drawback to any of these 3 wheelers (can't call them trikes) is lack of storage space for trips unless alone; then the passenger seat will hold luggage or whatever. They are easier to take your dog with you if you want to risk getting your upholstery trashed.

Vanderhall History



Note: Judging by the pics in the gallery; there's a top you can put on in case of rain or sensitive skin from the sun.

For a lot less, you can buy a Fiat 124 Spyder, a car the missus will find much more acceptable and might even let you drive it now and then.

I, too, like that better than the Slingshot. It looks like it would be more at home in the real world, whereas the Slingshot could have come from Science Fiction.

No, I won't be buying it.

I think I'd go for the Mazda Miata first but I get your point Ric.

There are some really nice sports cars in the same price range of these 3 wheelers and they have a little trunk for weekend trips.

I think it's the unique factor for these that some are drawn to them.

I wonder if they were inspired by this 1929 Bugatti body style?

Or this '28...

Both are sweet roadsters, similar but the Fiat 124 is oriented toward touring and driving to Italian restaurants, while the Miata is more for track, slalom, gymkhana events and sushi dives.

That Avorza thing is like gold plating a Timex. Its still a watch. But hey, there are those who have to make a statement that sez; look at me, look at me, gawdammit, look at me and how I can fritter away huge amounts of cash.
