A very unique vehicle called the Campagna T-Rex has become very popular in the last few years. It is something that is very different from a traditional vehicle, much more similar to a motorcycle, and that is actually how it is often registered. It is a three wheeled vehicle, with two in the front and one in the back. Powered by a Kawasaki motor that can deliver almost 200 hp, and over 110 in torque, it’s able to get up to speeds of 60 miles an hour in less than four seconds. Here’s an overview of this very interesting vehicle, one that can seat to people, that has really impressed those that are looking for something different that can hit top speeds.
Campagna T-Rex Overview
Originating back in the 1990s, with only a 1.4 L Kawasaki engine, this vehicle has definitely improved. Now equipped with a 1.6 L BMW engine, it has become much more versatile and faster on the road. The new model can do hundred and 30 pound feet of torque, getting up to over 5000 RPM. It utilizes a six speed sequential transmission, and is now designed with a crash tested tubular chassis, plus roll cage, making it much more safe than all of its predecessors. Other safety features include the three-point safety belts, and it has become more modern with waterproof marine grade seats and 180 what audio system. You can play your iPod, iPhone, or even plug-in your computer through the USB port plus it has Bluetooth connectivity.
Why People Love This Vehicle
Similar to the popularity of the amazing Ariel Atom, it is different because it is virtually open, and allows you to generate incredible speeds. This is despite the 16 inch front wheels which are set so wide apart, yet they are perfect for taking the tightest corners at excessive speeds. There are also high mounted headlights, and removable side cases. They have also improved on the braking system using Willwood brake discs, able to stop this 1000 pound vehicle on a dime.
Drawbacks To The Design
The design of this vehicle is probably the only drawback that people could point at, specifically that you are out in the open. That’s why it needs to have a roll bar, to prevent what could be a very disastrous event, especially losing control at high speeds. Other than that, those that own this vehicle, and especially those that want to own one, have nothing but praise for this very unique and fast-paced vehicle.
There is some debate as to whether or not this is a car or a motorcycle. It just depends on which way you want to look at it. It is priced very high for a vehicle of the size, almost $60,000, but it is designed for people that like something unique that goes extremely fast, that very few other people are driving. Now that you know a little bit more about the Campagna T-Rex, you should consider owning one for yourself. If you are a fan of the Ariel Atom which is similar in appearance, you will definitely want a Campagna T-Rex.
