Neo Solex, Back to the Future...

After the VW Beetle becoming the New Beetle, after the Mini becoming BMW, after the Fiat 500 soon to become Trepiùno... And I forget some more on purpose, like the Renault Fifty... Here is one more proof that the Fifties Design remains ageless!

So, this is a modern evocation of the mythic Solex (designed by Pininfarina), the e-solex!
Aesthetically, the relation is obvious, but this time, the engine is electric (!), and driving the rear wheel (!!)... Two disc brakes stop the beast. Times change...

Some might see it as sacrilege. I'd rather see it as a tribute...
