1.25 Gs?

Hot damn, my 93 RX7 only pulls 1, one of the highest ever attained by ANY production car - including an F40 Ferrari.

I would sell my soul to the devil to have one of those, but frankly the 0-60 performance is pretty lackluster... I am sure the aftermarket would take care of that REAL fast.

This is the kind of stuff US car makers better come up with or they are history.

I had a '66 micro bus in college in 1972, that would do 70 mph tops, drafting an 18 wheeler at about 100 feet ... NEVER could get into a THING.

I'm right behind you Ron. What a vehicle?! I had a '64 Micro in '71 and had some real interesting trips driving on I95 drafting what seemed like just feet off the rear bumper of 18 wheelers...ah the good ole days.

Thumbs up

"Volkswagen presents the GX3 a completely new type of motorcycle." I think that statement is a bit far-fetched. But those marketing gurus will say just about anything. Yes, we had a 3-wheeled vehicle thread 2 or 3 weeks ago. But this one could use repeating. That is one sweet toy. I must say, I wouldn't mind owning one.
