OT: Carver in Europe

Anyone seen this in Europe?







I wonder how much it is and how hard it is to get hold of one. [;)]

Nope...and I really don't want to see it in the U.S. , at least on the street. Where I work it's just another variant on the ever popular "donorcycle". Won't fare well up against SUV's or even a Mini. Although it looks like fun, it'll mainly provide practice for the lifeguards at the shallow end of the gene pool (trauma surgeons) , similar to shmomobiles .

Very cool-I'd love to have a go in one. Inspired by the Mercedes-Benz F300 no doubt. I'd feel safer in the Merc- especially because it has two wheels up front.

The F400 took the concept one step further by integrating the technology into a more traditional car.

The F300 Lifejet is where the inspiration came from. I would love to have one - just for fun. [:)]

If it's classified as a motorcycle, fine. If it is classified as an automobile, it'll never pass U.S. crash test standards.

Funny thing is that it is sold as an automobile in Europe. It would certainly have to be classified as a motorcycle to pass muster in the US.
