Have you ever thought that your Ferrari just wasn’t fast enough?
South Florida based Scorpion Motorsports is soon to hold the title of the world’s fastest 3 wheeler. When Scorpion’s street-legal P13 goes on sale, it will offer buyers the thrill ride of a lifetime. With an MSRP below $30,000 USD, the P13 runs 0 to 60mph in 3 seconds and corners at 1.5 lateral G’s. These performance specs exceed exotic automobiles such as the Ferrari Enzo and Porsche Carrera GT, but the P13 is only a fraction of the price.
Inside, the P13 has a steering wheel and familiar 3 pedal set. Surrounding the lucky driver is premium leather and suede upholstery. All controls are integrated into the custom crafted steering wheel. Details such as the digital speedometer with integrated shift lights and Formula 1 style paddle shifters give the vehicle a high quality feel that is on par with rivals such as Ducati and MV Agusta.
Outside, the P13 is breathtaking. The bodywork echoes Formula 1 without being gaudy. However, the shape was not intended to mimic a racecar, rather to aerodynamically wrap around the major mechanical components while using clean, flowing lines. The exposed suspension is an automotive first and serves to break up the racecar look, giving the P13 a more modern-technical feel that works well in its street bike role.
The real experience, though, is driving the P13. The vehicle has a power to weight ratio greater than Bugatti’s million-dollar Veyron. This amount of power combined with an ultra lightweight chassis results in acceleration unlike any streetcar. However, a bigger surprise occurs when the roads get twisty. The P13 has a higher grip level through corners than any other US street legal vehicle. Body roll is minimal thanks to a robust anti-roll bar, and steering response is immediate. This paired with a firm brake pedal and excellent street manners make the P13 a joy to drive on the weekends or any sunny day.
There is nothing on the road quite like the P13. It is a unique blend of racing feel, unique styling and real-world street usability. In the US, the P13 is registered as a motorcycle and will be available through a nationwide dealership network. Best of all, unlike other exotics, service and support will be convenient and done through most motorcycle repair centers.
