Post Listing Update: This Tritan did not meet reserve despite 29 bids up to $15,350.99 on eBay in Portage, Michigan.
Looks like the seller of the Aero Car project from two weeks ago has another one – but this one runs! As a reminder: the Tritan A2 was notable for having an incredible drag coefficient – just 0.15. Compare that to a period MR2, which had a Cd of 0.35. Amusingly, the only commercial “success” the A2 had was with Domino’s Pizza. The pizza company thought that this had potential as a low cost delivery vehicle, so they ordered 10 examples as a pilot project. Of the 10, it is believed that just 7 survive. You saw #6 two weeks ago, and today we’ve got #7.
The OEM engine is an Israeli-built Savkel (aka Syvaro) 440cc air-cooled rotary motor which was good for 30 horsepower. The engine was paired with a belt-driven auto transmission, and the claimed top speed was 95 miles per hour. The key was the low weight figure of 900 pounds.
This example (VIN: 1T93PR305D1079007) has just 39 miles on it, though the original rotary motor has been replaced by a 30 horsepower Predator engine with a Comet clutch. Per the seller, the fiberglass bodywork and paint has been “reworked” (who knows what that means) and it’s got new windows. The listing includes a trailer (claimed to be 1 of 2 made specifically to haul the Tritan). He’s also got the Domino’s decals if you want to go back to the original look!
