I wants one!

Monday, November 26, 2007
So something very interesting came across my email inbox today: the VentureOne.

The VentureOne - give it to me!

Designed, apparently, as a three-wheeled hybrid motorcycle/car vehicle, the VentureOne - if actually produced according to initial specs - will be able to go at least 100 mph, accelerate to 60 in about 7 seconds, and yet still get get 100(-ish) miles per gallon while carrying up to two people in an enclosed cabin.

From the looks of the initial design drawings, I'm guessing it will be sold as a motorcycle-type vehicle. If nothing else, there's no front bumper (which passenger cars in the US require) but motorcycles don't need (according to regulations.) Furthermore, it looks like the driving dynamics (except for the steering) will be very similar to riding a motorcycle... implying to me that a motorcycle endorsement will be required to ride/drive one. I can handle that.

So if anyone has an extra $20,000 laying around, feel free to pre-order me one. (I'll take a Q100 in dark blue, with beige leather seats, GPS, and the premium sound, please.)

You know... I would expect better by now. I feel that technology has let us down in this very arena, or has it been held back?
