HumanCar – street legal human powered car @ Wired, NextFest, Treehugger and their site.

The FM-4 v1.0 HumanCar (Fully Manual 4 Passenger) ‘geometry prototype’ has been so successful that no changes have been required. Several downhill time trial runs have had the car above 60mph + with incredible handling and BodySteer characteristics. The steel tube space frame chassis features a bi-lateral human power interface and front passenger body-steering capabilities. The vehicle is also designed to follow transportation efficiency guidelines such as the SyncGuideway specification on the menu as well.

HumanCar, Inc. has been creating human powered vehicles for over 30 years. Our current vehicle is the first four-passenger LMV (Low Mass Vehicle) car ready for production.

    Definitely photo-shopped. It’s a rendering placed onto a picture of a field. Look closely at teh grass under the wheels, and it’s not even scaled right!

    Oh, this is the modern Flintstones car! lol Thanks for sharing this one. This is a great vehicle for people who wants to jog together and do some exercise at the park.
