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

I'd locostify the front end and put an STi motor in the back.

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 wire hubcaps really bring an air of class to the whole thing.

Would two wheels doubled up in front be enough to count?

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.
