|TRIKE TRIKES for sale u|
Rare in the States - Ultra Rare in Europe!
A true Supercar - even on todays roads and relativly cheap to run compared to the usual Italan, German, Japanese exotica. This is also known as the RPO B2K model. 1st year production model #134/184 produced and one of the few with the NACA bonnet ducts - ordered on 01/05/1987 for New Jersey, New York owner. Fitted with the full Callaway Twin Turbo package ($20,000!), also fitted with the Z51 Factory performance ($ ????) package and interior upgrade ($ ???). The genuine Callaway DYMAG lightweight magnesium wheels were a later purchase - costing over (USA price) $4000+ - they look narrow from the outside but are in fact very wide rims. Totally original and unmolested.

V8 Twin Turbocharged and Intercooled Chevy 350 cu in (5700cc) L98 engine @ 10psi boost - 175mph+
Faster Top end speed: Better Handling: Better braking: Better fuel economy: Same accelleration and yet cost 10's of $1,000's LESS than a: Countach - a Porsche 911 and a Testarossa! A true Supercar in every way except cost. (click here for specifiactions and comparrison sheet)
At 60mph returns an astonishing 26.9 mpg!!! and 23.6 at 70 mph!!! There are factual consumption figures based on Tank to Tank fill up's - the cars computer was reading 23.6 mpg and I've found this and the fuel gauge to be very accurate. But you don't buy one of these for it's fuel economy - do you? This is a manual gearbox (Super T-10 BW) 4-speed with 3 Overdrive gears - basically stick it in 4th - O/drive on - get to 60mph and punch it - it's like a Phantom jet - just keeps going...and going....and going......
