If you drop the Kawasaki Ninja 900R engine in just about anything under 2,000 pounds you are the absolute maniac.
If you drop the Kawasaki Ninja900R engine in something weighing 730 pounds, well, you should be committed. Adam from AMT Machine Shop in Vancouver, British Columbia did just that and with his custom three wheeler-car-trike-kart-thing.
The pound to hp ratio is just 5 lb/horsepower, significantly lower than the Dodge Challenger Hellcat’s 6.29 lb/horsepower.
The impressive creation started life as essentially just the Ninja 900R powertrain and Adam built the completely custom cage around it. He transformed the aspects of the 900R into more of the car feel.
The contraption has the working clutch, steering, turn signals, headlights, everything else you need to make it a legal vehicle. However, this trike is far from normal, and the car pulls for days and revs all the way up to 12,000 RPM.
In all intensive purposes, the car feels and sounds like the open frame race car. As you can see in this Roads Untraveled clip, the AMT3 (name of vehicle) handles beautifully for the custom build and really gives the driver the feel of immersion with the road around him.
The AMT3 utilizes custom coilover suspension, the custom control arms, and the various parts from other small sports cars. Unluckily, this vehicle is a one-off and we’ll most likely not see another version in the near future.
