Even though T-Rex has been commercially available since the early 1990s, major changes were made to ensure the 2007 model is more efficient in fuel consumption. Using only a 1.4 Liter, 4-cylinder engine, it accelerates from 0-97 km/h (0-60 mph) in 3.5 seconds, with a top speed of 253 km/h (157 mph). The manual transmission, although controlled by hand, more closely resembles motorcycle transmissions than that of a car.
Due to the absence of doors or windshield (optional), the vehicle maintains a very low weight. In addition, thanks to its low center of gravity, two front wheels and wide single rear wheel, the vehicle can achieve turning g-forces greater than a substantial majority of four-wheeled vehicles. Its distinctive, unusual look and style has made it a collector's item for both car and motorcycle enthusiasts. See it in action in the following video.
