Wildfire WF800-C – East 10th Street btwn. 1st & A, NYC

Wildfire WF650-C - East 10th Street

Notice anything odd about the car pictured here? Well you should. For starters, it’s parked vertically against the curb like a European Smart Fortwo. Look closer and you will notice there are only 3 wheels putting power to the pavement – 2 in the back and 1 in the front. So, despite the full body enclosure and hatchback design, this car is actually not a car at all.

Canam Spyder 1

Just when you thought you had trikes all figured out, BRP throws in this dyslexic monkey wrench called the Can-Am Spyder Roadster. Bombardier Recreational Products, or BRP for short, used their expertise in building everything from jet skis and ATVs to snowmobiles and Rotax engines in designing this unconventional motorcycle concept that features two wheels in the front and one in the rear. Aside from turning heads and confusing pedestrians, the two pronged proposition also happens to up the handling ante thanks to the double a-arm suspension up front. Oh and the Cam-Am’s utterly stable front end alleviates most gravitational concerns about breaking your bike and or your body.
