Really narrow car

4RWF V8.jpg

Look, Ma, it’s a motorcycle with four wheels. Not a bike but, um… a “quike,” maybe? It’s the 4RWF V8 from “Cosmos” Muscle Bikes. (“Cosmos?” Really?) Four wheels or no, they’re at least going to have to hire a copy editor for their website before they’ll persuade me to part with the nearly $100K it reportedly costs. [via Born Rich]

  1. “They are comfortable and their dimensions are exclusivity for the costumers, follow their physic characteristics.”

    I made a costume this Halloween, do I qualify for the dimensions?

  2. Definitely similar to the Tomahawk.

    It’d be nice to see it in motion doing a hard turn. And a website grammar that doesn’t make my eyes bleed would be nice as well.

    What I’m really curious about is the legal aspect of riding this. There have been a few attempts like this in the past, but they run into problems. Mostly, they usually qualify as cars since they have four wheels. This puts them into a whole other category with requirements such as seat belts, bumpers, and airbags. Anyone have more information?

  3. Watch the video. It appears to run sluggish and it sounds like a go-cart. Anything that looks that rad has to sound it too.

  4. There was a vendor here in So CA that sold a very similarly configured scooter. I can’t remember many specifics. I think it had a 150cc engine, and was specifically marked as being “not street legal” for reasons unknown. May have been a California thing. It certainly looked cool enough, and the price (about $2000 iirc) wasn’t too bad.

  5. The contact information on the web site lists them as being in Brazil, which probably explains both the atrocious English grammar and the street-legality issue.

  6. Paint it black, mount a repeating 20mm grenade launcher and a 7.62mm machine gun on it and you’re good to go, ready to strike terror into the hearts of the cowardly, superstitious criminals that plague your besieged city.
