Give a 70’s unstable tricycle bond bug five times horsepower and a top speed of more than 200 km / h, thanks to a super motorcycle engine. The bond bug is going to be auctioned. < / P > < p > bond bug is a joint work of reliance automotive company and designer Tom Karen, trying to make the weird design of reliance Robin tricycle more dynamic in the 1970s. This peculiar tricycle design led to a vehicle far less stable than a four wheeled vehicle, and its main attraction was that in parts of the UK at that time, people could drive a bond bug without a formal license. < / P > < p > Karen built a futuristic body that seemed at the time. Perhaps inspired by Lamborghini’s wedge-shaped supercar, it looks sporty, including pop-up headlights and orange paint. < / P > < p > the company has built a total of 2270 such tricycles with an output power of 29 to 31 horsepower. That’s enough for speeds up to 76 mph (122 kph) on highways. However, the car was refitted by a troubled French Englishman, adding a 1000cc Yamaha yzf-r1 super motorcycle engine, a six speed serial transmission and two motorcycle exhaust pipes. It is fully registered as a tricycle in France and now has a power of at least 150 horsepower. < / P > < p > sellers call it “the city sports car with the heart of a rocket.”. The super motorcycle engine can accelerate the bond bug to 3.5 seconds per 100 km / h, with a top speed of more than 200 km / h (124 mph). The instrument panel of R1 is slotted to the center console to act as an instrument panel. The 12000rpm red line is clearly visible on the tachometer. It also has a heater installed. < / P > < p > the 1973 bond bug is now on sale at artsocial. The car will be auctioned from November 1 and will be valued at between 20000 and 30000 euros.
