If you drove that thing in the US, some rednecks would call you a faggot then try to beat your ass
I bet if you went like 30-45 minutes outside Seattle there'd be Rednecks, there's plenty that far outside of Boston, which is more liberal.
We keep the rednecks on the other side of the mountains.
$250, 100 miles to the gallon, you can pick up and take it with you, and drive it around the office.
Oh hell yeah, I want one of those.
And for crying out loud, thats 1960 technology. Give it to the Japanese to redesign, tell them to put on four wheels, a reverse, and a battery engine and you could probably have a gasoline-free car for a hundred dollars.
Except inflation would make it cost $5-10k
Its basically a toy car with a moped engine. I'm betting you could easily get the cost at a few hundred with modern production techniques.
After all, the Isle of Man didn't have "Made in China"
A new moped, which is significantly less complicated, costs ~$1k. And no, I don't mean a scooter.

I think a modern version of this should be like a coupe version of a Superkart. Then it could be small, practical, and able to post a lap of the Hockenheimring comparable to a DTM car.
The Dutch have similar things that drive down the bike lanes. They go a little faster when needed, and can carry more, but they're very practical otherwise. I almost got run down by a couple in my time.
Tonight on BBC World News... what the fuck is that?
I want one, especially if you don't have to have a driver's license!
I want to see the Stig, or American Stig, drive this.
It's like a jellybean with 3 wheels.
Unfortunately, the modern ass has made its own developments that render that car impractical today.
Too bad if you took that thing on the roads in the US you'd be in the grill of an SUV before you can say bonjourno

WHAT THE FUCK HAS HAPPENED TO HIS HAIR
I lost my virginity in a Peel P50.

John Humphrys stealing the car = five goddamn stars.
I love 3-wheeled cars. The smaller, the groovier.
I hate all motorsports or car shows they show here every saturday and sunday afternoon, but Top Gear is just brilliant. It takes HUGE amounts of talent to make a show about something and get people to watch even if they're not particularly interested in the subject in general.
-2:23 may be the best thing Jeremy Clarkson has ever done.

Driving through the BBC World News was frankly the most I've laughed since My Immortal's reading by Acier on Garbage Day.
