Oooh, the Ariel Torq! Only at 3K miles and it's priced at $34,000!? :eek:
Those usually push $100,000.

This, my friends, is a fire sale.

Maybe I backed the wrong pony... :confused:

Sooo both Polaris and Ariel come out with a machine that look suspiciously similar to each other? Who copied who? or just a coincidence? Never saw this Ariel before

This three-wheel shape has appeared in a few incarnations as of recent. From the VW prototype we saw here, to some similar spaceframes that haven't gone to production. Also, this isn't exactly "Ariel", but more like a kit project that would make Dr. Frankenstein jealous (and in a nicer body kit than Frankenstein's monster).

It's a sweet machine.

Seems pretty neat, but not enough range and way too expensive. That would seem to be what killed it.

Front wheel drive, electric, I for one am not ready for that. Old school boy here. NOISE has to accompany the high horses.
