Personally, I think I'd buy a Mazda Miata before I'd buy THAT....

$25K no way.

I'd buy an older Miata that is rust free and and go the V8 kit route.

Put me in the Miata camp as well, I'm not a fan of three wheels.
I also find it stupid that I would have to wear a helmet while driving that. Yes "driving" not "riding". Even if I could get past the three wheel thing, the stupidity of the helmet thing would be enough to sway me toward a Miata.

I dunno I would have to say it looks like fun, but not $25k kinda fun. I would rather the alternatives. To me it looks like a three wheel KTM X-bow (which I think are awesome, but again not $80k awesome).

I would like a really nice side by side, but more off road!

Looks like fun for sure!

Look at the pic from in front. W/ three wheels/ tracks you'd be 'hard-pressed' to miss any obstacles on or in the road!

And that's the thing that bothers me about a trike, whether it be a conventional tri-cycle type or the type with the single wheel in the rear, very tough to avoid running over something laying in the road.

I'll keep my Pontiac Solstice thankyouverymuch.

At least I can turn on the AC when it gets warm, and put the top up if a rain storm pops up.

They are using basically the same engine that I have in my Pontiac. The Solstice looks good and handles the curves well.
