These identical cars - are going to be available in UK shortly - costing from £8k to £10k
Extras include DOORS (replacing standard ROPES)

classed as Quadricycles
it doesn't need any of the safety equipment manufacturers are mandated to bundle into new passenger cars. So it has zero airbags, no crash crumple zones, not a single electronic safety aid and not even anti-lock brakes - a legal requirement for passenger cars since 2004.
They can be driven by 16 year olds on a moped licence (14 in Italy) !!
Deathtraps - I think is a good name for them
Even at maximum top speed of 28 mph
claimed range of up to 47 miles
If anything heavier than a breeze hits them - they will crumple away to nothing
What does the forum think ?
