Aero 3S add bling to the Campagna T-Rex, OptaMotive to add battery power


The Campagna T-Rex looks even cooler with the Aero 3S kit!

Anibal Harfouche and Jean-Pierre Lussier at Aero 3S are offering a body kit for the Campagna T-Rex. Powered by the 200bhp ZZR1400 engine, the T-Rex is already the coolest, maddest trike in the world – we absolutely love this thing. And the Aero 3S body kit – made of carbonfibre and fibreglass – isn’t bad looking either.

While Aero 3S are adding bling to the Campagna T-Rex, the Ottawa-based OptaMotive are converting the trike to battery power, in pursuit of the Progressive Automotive X-Prize. Optamotive will be replacing the T-Rex’s 1,400cc engine with an all-electric powertrain, which will produce more than 100 horsepower, push the electric ’Rex from zero to 96km/h in less than 10 seconds and provide a range of more than 160km on a single charge.

The project name for OptaMotive’s all-electric T-Rex is ‘Surge’ and you can get more details on their official website here
