How About An 80mpg, 2-Seater Car For Less Than $8,000?

Elio Motors 3-wheeler car costs less than $8,000 and is designed as cheap basic transportation for those of us who otherwise might be stuck with driving around in a "beater". Been there, done that. It has a manual transmission and a 55 HP 3-cylinder gasoline engine.

It's an interesting concept, and I have no idea if it will actually catch on - it may, as it's odd enough to be "quirky" or "hip", while still remaining somewhat practical. It looks a bit like a covered (and much less expensive) version of one of those motor trike contraptions - which I dislike intensely, for no logical reason I can think of.

I don't know if the 3-wheeler aspect will freak people out here in the US. Being from the UK myself, I am a little more familiar with seeing 3-wheeled cars running around (sporty Morgans, the ghastly Reliant Robin, and the old, trippy "Bubble Cars").
