Luxury Motorcycles: The T-Rex looks like a car but it is classified as a three-wheel motorcycle. However, it is an enclosed vehicle made of reinforced fiberglass with two seats and a steering wheel. Its road-hugging suspension makes the driving experience comparable to the feel of a racecar. Although it is a three-wheeler, it looks like a dune buggy on steroids. The T-Rex, with its tubular-steel chassis, goes from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and tops out at 140 mph. The manufacturer recommends that drivers and occupants wear helmets, goggles and appropriate safety clothing when operating it.

T-Rex is a 900-pound monster that is 42 inches high, 78 inches wide, and 138 inches long. The rack and pinion steering goes 2.75 turns lock-to-lock. The front suspension has unequal opposed triangular arms, adjustable dampers with coil overs, and a sway bar. The rear suspension has swing arms and dual adjustable dampers with coil overs. A ZZR 1200 Kawasaki motorcycle engine and a sequential six-speed transmission power T-Rex. The vehicle's kit can be customized for taller drivers. Factory colors include red, black, silver, orange, yellow and blue. Custom colors also can be provided.

The Campagna Corporation makes the unique T-Rex. The 2007s are available in the U.S, Canada and the Middle East. Lamborghini of Orange County offers the little adrenaline drivers in Southern California. A complete list of dealers is available on the company's website.
