I found something interested in taobao while I searching machine shop

a full complete car with 50000 RMB, around 7000 usd

size is 3.6M * 1.8M, looks like 442E

the engine they supply is 1.1L 3cyl, 53hp, with 4 speed manual, top speed 100km/h, or a 3000w electric motor, fiberglass body, full independent suspension


didn't get any photo of the frame, so don't know will it allow for a higher power plant on this flame , will find a chance to the workshop for research after covid 19

Hood-line looks tall, it would probably look better with clamshell fenders.

Engine sound like it might be an enlarged Suzuki?

Are the tires and wheels 10 or 12 inch? They look like golf cart or ATV

Not a bad rig. I wonder if it's possible to import one to the USA

I am confused. (not unusual for me) I see 3 different cars. Which car are you looking at?
