Sbarro Aero, 2000


 

This strange vehicle, a sort of sidecar with a ful bodywork, was introduced in 2000 to promote Sbarro's swatch. The swatch incorporates the principle of the Orbital wheel (hubless wheel).

 

Of course, what surprises most in the Sbarro Aero is the driving position : the driver puts his hands on the handlebars placed in the wheel. Fully enclosed, the pilot and the machine seem to merge. The supine position should not be the very best in comfort.

 

In 2008, the Aero reappeared. It was exhibited in October at the Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris, in November in Essen and Geneva in march 2009.
