Economical car on three wheels

The Bonning Roadster delivers supercar performance and true sports car character in a compact three-wheeled economy car. It is being developed with a view to consuming not just a miserly amount of petrol but also alternative fuels such as hydrogen and methanol derived from household waste.

Weighing just 400kg - half the weight of the smallest hatchback - the 90 kW Bonning has phenomenal acceleration and a top speed around 200 km/h. It is the brainchild of Queensland automotive designer and oil painter Brad Bonning, who developed it from a pedal-powered car he had produced for driver training.
