Seat Ibiza 3Wheeler

Many will see these images and you're pulling the hairs so aberrant that may result. What does a SEAT Ibiza with only three wheels? Not really, because the engineers in Martorell have not gone head, and do not, nor does it have three wheels, they are four but very juntitas. And you ask why make a prototype (to call it somehow) of this model and with these features? well, the answer is simple.

In Germany young people can't drive a car (normal and current) until they reach the age of majority. This age of majority is fixed, as in Spain, in the 18 years and as is the case in our country the young germans can drive according to what models before the age of majority. In this case, the guys germans who wish to do so can driving vehicles reach a maximum speed of 80 kilometres an hour, and its power is less than or equal to 20 hp.

Starting from these premises we can find a few cars. However, if we go back in time, we can remember the old and popular BMW Isetta or the mini mini - Peel. These two models had three basic characteristics that are shared. The first is that it only had three wheels; the second was an exterior size which is very, very content , and the third and last is that they were driven by engines of very small and inexpensive.

In those years, these cars helped to drive thousands of people, but today this type of vehicle does not have sense, with the exception of the creations with the best arguments to amuse the driver. This configuration is known as 3-Wheeler. For that, in Germany, a vehicle is considered a 3-Wheeler should have a back that is less than or equal to 46,5 centimeters, and this distance is what makes our SEAT Ibiza look like a three-wheeled.

Well, if the vehicle complies with this feature, the German government allows children under the age of 18 years, with the corresponding licence, to drive a 3-Wheeler. To do this, Self Ellenrieder produces these curious transformations to the request of customers who wish to do so. This preparation uses the name of Ellenator and according to Auto Ellenrieder can be performed on many models of the market, although they also work with models such as the Volkswagen Polo or Skoda Fabia.

The cost of this modification is about € 5,500 and involves modifications on the rear axle, adaptation of body to the new features of the model and could be understood that also the engine, as the power of this type of vehicles may not exceed the threshold of 20 hp.
