Thumbs up Loremo on Flickr

I thought I'd just drop this link here:

Flickr: loremo's Photostream

It's the Loremo company's Flickr stream. Check out the track testing photographs especially. A very aerodynamic car indeed!

Nice find, Sayyad.

This pic in particular shows how small it is. Either that, or the people in the photo are giants!



Considering the size, making it a 2+2 is an accomplishment.

apparently the production version will looks slightly different, the loremo website has a picure of it, but most images still show the prototype.

what i like about the loremo is that it's not an ugly shopping trolley, but an economic, practical and yet roadster like car.

with the odd entry method and low seating position i don't think it'll be everyone cup of tea though...

Here it is beside a minivan, for a size comparison:



Apparently it is still headed for production around 2010. I wish them luck.
