The Love Bug on three wheels
In addition to a retro-chic design, it has all the trappings of a miniature car.
Online stores like Hammacher Schlemmer are turning into little Harrods. To prove the point, one needn't look any further than this two-person, three-wheeled scooter coupe on its virtual storefront.
In addition to a retro-chic design, it has all the trappings of a miniature car: a 50cc air-cooled, four-stroke engine can reach 30 miles per hour on a 1.5-gallon fuel tank that's good for 100 miles with two riders up to 400 pounds. The coupe sports a steel tube frame covered in a fiberglass body and comes with 13-inch alloy wheels, rubber tires, front disc brakes and rear drum brakes. On the body you'll find front, side, and rear turn signals integrated into the headlights, folding side mirrors and brake lights. Inside, the chrome dashboard includes gauges for fuel, a speedometer and tachometer, and there're two-point restraint seatbelts.
At $6,000, it gives those China-made Chery QQ mini-cars a run for the money. And they're cuter too.
