Default Mini's Success: New Zero-Emissions Drivetrain!

Hahaha zero emissions are emitted from this creation by Mini. It's called the Mini Clubman Rickshaw and it's basically an attemp to attract some attention to themselves. But their excuse was that it would bring good luck to the Beijing Olympics.

Its is truly interesting ! but with such a broad tire and huge payload how the man will be able to pedal that thing? !!
AFAIK cycle top gear has 5 gears this should have 105 gears !!

I am sure that after a heavy "fillup" by the driver, there will be some "emissions".

That thing's gotta be at least 500 lbs without the passengers. Wonder how they are able to pull it.
Unless it's made of cardboard or carbon fiber.
