Blastolene go mad with supercharged V8 Hemi-powered trike


For those who've always wanted a supercharged, 500bhp trike...

If the ZZR1400-powered Campagna T-Rex isn’t mad enough for you, meet Blastolene’s latest creation – the Hemi-powered trike you see here. We don’t know how much power its supercharged Hemi V8 makes, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that figure is around 500bhp or more.

Apart from all that power, the Blastolene trike’s single-sided front swingarm looks interesting. Of course, how it rides and handles may not be very important because we doubt if too many people will actually be able to ride the thing. For starters, you may not be able to look at the road ahead because of that huge engine sitting right in front of you. And then, given its length, we don’t know how manageable this trike will be, in rush hour traffic.

Still, we suppose some collectors just might be mad – and rich – enough to want one for their garage…
