Aptera stability test



As reported by AutoBlogGreen:

Wondering how stable the Aptera 2e's three-wheeled configuration will be? ... Fortunately, the topic is also on the minds of some of the lucky few testers who have gotten seat time in preproduction Apteras, and at least one person has captured his driving antics on video.

Jason H. Harper, writing for Bloomberg, recently took an Aptera 2e for a spin and he strapped a video camera inside while taking a number of tire-screechingly tight corners at speed. From the looks (and sounds) of things, the Aptera made good use of its twin front wheels and comparatively wide track to remain impressively stable throughout the exercise.

WHAT! You think the Aptera is ugly? Even without being opinionated it is the most beautiful PRODUCTION MODEL car ever conceived or built.

I was gonna, but I never came up with anything interesting to say. It's a pretty epic tale though.
