Can it even drag race? How about some 1/4 mile times?

I can go buy a civic engine, turbo it up and stick it to a piece of log with wheels but what good will that do?

One of the coolest things I've seen on here in a while. All of you who start your posts with "what a waste of...." Can just chill out. This is a car enthusiast website. That's a show car. Not even a real dragster as that single street radial could never keep the power down. Probably not even a real Isetta but even if it was so what. It's cool as shit! Moar powah!

Nice misinformation in the third sentence. Just because this Isetta has three wheels, doesn't mean they all do.

All have 4. Rear tires are spaced about 20 inches apart. There's a drive sprocket and chain between them.
