That's why they build prototypes, watch for it...

Road and Track journalists have a close look on the Elio prototype in Big Apple traffic. It had a semi-complete interior and was powered by the prototype 3-cylinder engine. They noticed the shift linkage was not smooth, the exhaust system unrefined, creaked and rattled, and the engine mapping was not tuned. Also, there was noticeable aroma of gasoline inside the trike.

Why engineers build prototypes, they take it for a ride in the city streets of Manhattan...then @ 21:30...
