TVR to reverse the trend
empty space gifTVR Tri-drive

Following the launch of Audi's 3 -wheel sensation the AudiTTy
the new TVR seeks a slice of the small car market with this remarkable new vehicle. Claimed to be the first truly reversible car, the TVR Tri-drive arrives in European showrooms early spring 2004.

Wreckered road test
With a body design that only a mother could love, the Tri-drive has few rivals in all round weirdness. The revolutionary True Reverse chassis is intended to eliminate any need to drive backwards by allowing the driver to simply rotate the interior cabin and hence face the back and then move forward in reverse. If you know what I mean.. Okay - its funky. Okay - its cocking a snook at the mass market mundanity of most assembly line motors. But this, I'm afraid is a prototype too far and will struggle to find a place in the hearts of anyone who doesn't do magic mushrooms. The AudiTTy has little to fear from this pretender to the three-wheel throne.

On the road
In 15 years of motoring journalism, rarely have I been so embarrassed to be seen in any car. This thing coughs and chugs its way through streets at a top speed of 65 mph, barely fast enough to outrun the laughter from the pavements. Fuel economy is the only plus point with a respectable 84mpg. Why, though, anyone would want to drive 84 miles in this thing remains a question.
In the cabin
Spartan, basic and plastic. The soft roof can be inflated to give extra head room for anyone who happens to be taller than a jockey. The entire cabin, including seats, pedals, dashboard and wheel, rests on a hydraulic disc which rotates to allow the front of the car to become the back and vice versa. This, say the manufacturers, will make reverse parking a thing of the past. It will also, I'd suggest, consign your credibility to the dustbin of history.

empty space gifFerrari Ditch Icelander

Ferrari announced yesterday that the controversial Icelander will stay on the drawing board. The prototype, which sacrificed headlights in favour of sheer style, was intended for the growing but lucrative Arctic market, where nine months of sunshine allows for minimal use of headlights.

A Ferrari spokesman said "Our market research showed niche possibilities for the car, but the global downturn means we must concentrate on our core customer base."
