Cute. Sorta reminds me of the Nash Metropolitan. Wonder whose engine it uses?

Panhard's.

Quote:
Panhard was one of the world's oldest auto manufacturers and since 1945 had become known for producing economical cars. Panhard, like CitroŽn, considered itself a leader, not a follower of automotive trends, and the Dyna Z featured an impressive array of unusual engineering choices.
  • Layout Front engine
  • front-wheel drive
  • Powertrain
  • Engine 851 cc

  • 42 or 50 hp at 5000 rpm

Edit:

Use the exhaust pipes for the engine mounts? What could possibly go wrong?

I always picture something like that with a Beetle nose and roof grafted on; for better ingress/egress.

I am not convinced, but it is cool looking.

I used to do that on my old Honda 750-4. I could rest my legs on the turn signals. It was good for about 5 mph at top end which was around 110 mph.
