That is nice! Looks like a Spyder taken to a whole new level, but they are completely different.

Well it gets attention, is powerful for a 3 wheeler, cross between bike & a car thus making it unique & one with a different personality than others on road, handles well & 0-60mph: 3.92 seconds, if the owner has loads of money then I would say money well spent.

Whoa thats a fantastic looking thing, right among the batmobiles. It sure has presence and probably thats what the owner wanted when he shipped it to our shores. Its one hell of an aggressive, dynamic and wicked ride.

The body kit AERO 3S, is not a kit car. It's a body kit that goes over a used or a new Campagna T-REX.

The price for the body kit in fiber glass start at $14,995.usd plus the paint work 5000$ , installation 2000$, shipping and handling.

For a 2010 Campagna T-REX, the price is around $ 57,000.usd and for a AERO 3S turn key, (like the one in Mumbai) the price start at $ 74,995.usd (plus shipping).

So my question is that this vehichle technically a bike, should attract custom duty rates of a new bike(80%) or a new car(108%), here in India ?

And if i kit up an used T-rex with aero3s, would it attract duty of a new or used vehicle?

Conceptual brilliance notwithstanding I would not be caught dead in it. So its got the kawasaki zx14 r's engine. One of the finest engines ever on the open class bike.Beautiful.But i still rather have another rear wheel added to it or a front wheel taken from it.

Yes saw this 'thing' too and had a good look at the driver. He has loads of money im sure and il give you a hint, "I wish he takes it out for his Mum-Pune Supercar Run" is what I heard someone say

now if this guy is the same guy who has the atom, it's a different case altogether.

i still can't understand someone paying about 75 lacs for a 3 wheeler. no matter how exclusive, no matter how fast. i still believe the ariel atom would be a better choice, wouldn't it?? (that is if the guy doesn't already own it)
