You could order plans for those in the 70s. Intended for electric or small industrial engine power.

I would totally rock that, as I always wanted a spaceship-car as a kid.

However, I can't get this out of my head.

I'd put a Changfa diesel in it, and drive it to work.

I love the crash helmet & rollcage. I bet that's not even Clarkson driving it. Nice try Top Gear.

the ability to use the word per twice in a row properly in a sentence should negate the need for a fourth wheel.

plus the fact that would probably be considered a kit car, the best it could do would be exhibition only.

Single front wheel is the most unstable architecture a car can have. Many lawsuite against Honda for their ATCs. Nope, I'll pass.
