Interior and Tech

The idea of the 3 Wheeler having an interior at all is a difficult one. It's more an extension of the exterior than anything, as you're left completely exposed to the elements while driving the car and if you don't use the optional tonneau cover, your 'interior' is left exposed to anything that falls from the sky or happens to stray past.

You sit lower than you think, but visibility is excellent thanks to the fact that the 3 Wheeler has no doors. Reverse parking the thing is a dream - parking sensors are redundant on a car that stretches barely further than an arm-span behind you with no pillars to clutter your vision.

Amazingly, heated seats are also an option. But by far the best bit about the interior, alongside the comfy quilted leather, is the engine start button, which has been taken from a Eurofighter's missile release. You simply disarm the immobiliser, twist a key, then flip up the safety cover and thumb the innocuous black button.

Dials and guages are clean and simple, but don't have quite the same level of parts bin feel that you find on a Caterham or kit car. A vast range of interior finishes (and different steering wheels) allows you to customise the car's look and feel to your tastes.

And technology? That comes in the form of a 12V charger for your satnav or phone... and that's about it. Digital gauges? Well, you do get an LCD percentage fuel gauge that looks slightly less high-tech than a 1980s alarm clock display.
