Many see these images and you will be pulling the hairs by the aberrant that can result. What makes a SEAT Ibiza only with three wheels? Because not, to them engineers of Martorell not be them has gone the head, and not, nor has three wheels, are four but very close together. And you may ask why make a prototype (by call it of any form) of this model and with these features? well the answer is simple.
In Germany , young people can not driving a car (normal and current) until they reach the age of majority. This majority of age is set, as in Spain, in them 18 years and as occurs in our country them young German can lead according to what models before the majority of age. In this case, them guys German that it wish to can drive vehicles that reach a speed maximum of 80 kilometers hour and his power is equal or lower to them 20 cv.
Starting from these premises we can find few cars. However, if we retrotraemos us in time, we can remember the old and popular BMW Isetta or the mini mini Peel. These two models had shared three basic characteristics. The first is that only counted with three wheel; the second was a size outer very, but that very content and the third and last is that were powered by Motors very small and economic.
In those years these cars helped to motorised to thousands of people, but today day this type of vehicles not have sense, with the exception of creations with best arguments for fun to the driver. This configuration is what we know as 3-Wheeler. In Germany a vehicle deemed 3-Wheeler it must have a rear equal or less than 46.5 centimetres, and that distance is what makes that our SEAT Ibiza looks like a tricycle.
As well, if the vehicle complies with this feature, the German Government allows kids under 18, with the appropriate license, driving a 3-Wheeler. To do this, Auto Ellenrieder elaborates these curious transformations at the request of customers who want it. This preparation uses the name of Ellenator and according to Auto Ellenrieder can perform it on many models on the market, although they also work with models such as the Volkswagen Polo and Skoda Fabia.
The cost involved in this amendment is about 5,500 euros and involves modifications on the rear axle, adaptation of body to the new features of the model and it could be understood as also the engine, since the power of this type of vehicle may not exceed the threshold of 20 HP.
