Scorpion7.10.

An extremely lightweight car, weight shouldn't exceed 700 kg - hence 7 in the name. Powered by a motorcycle 1000 ccm engine - hence 10 in the name. Visually concentrated around front wheels, rear end visually higher, a few insect-like design element, aggressive stance - hence the name Scorpion.
Well, that was the basic idea; I am not sure I am going to develop it any further. I just wanted to whip my pencil a bit. :)

Very nice T!
I really admire your automotive talents!

This sorta brings to mind a smaller, lighter and more up-to-date Renault Spider.

Thanks for sharing it with us!

Thanks, Dan! :) I had some "Freude am Fahren" in mind. A car that's not really ecological, but it's fun! :)

Welcome!

Thanks. Exposed wheels were basically the idea I was "building" whole car around. :)

It would be a tiny, quick, light car.

7... as in 700 kgs
10... as in 1000 ccm engine

a bigger, heavier car could be called, let's say, 9.15 then :)

900 kg and 1500 ccm engine.

It's a great look.
Now you just need to sell it to some rich car company who would make it a reality.
