Is this street legal or just a fun toy for the track?

I'm on their mailing list (read - hoping I get rich one day to build one my way and afford it)

I can't think if a more impractical...but fun..car. About the only thing that comes close would be a Smart four-two with a Hayabusa motor in it.

If I had a track nearby to twist it on, it'd be that much more alluring...as it is, I'd sooner get one of those than any Porsche or Ferrari, had I the money.

They are street legal and start at 45K for the 300 hp supercharged model.

Go here and click on the middle video. This is the one most have seen.

They are neat , but need a windshield. other than that they are as least as practical as a bike.

Their price tag surprises me. I suspect it is a matter of economies of scale.

I was on my motorcycle when I met up with the electric version. I split traffic at a light so I could get next to it. Talked to the guy at a couple lights. 3 rd light and I ask how fast it is? Light turns green and he is gone. He pulls away from my 1200 Bandit.

Dam thing was so quiet I never knew he wanted to race or he had it floored.
