Motivated by the fact that 90% of all cars use two-and-a-half tons of steel to transport just 1 person at a time, aeronautical engineers Chris van den Brink and Harry Kronen took the challenge of developing a new vehicle which would counter the growing problem of congestion, while being ecologically viable at the same time.

In trying to create a narrow, bullet-like model, they were faced with the challenge of creating an automatic stabilizing system that would allow for the vehicle to corner like a motorcycle, without losing its balance. And thus was born the pioneering Dynamic Vehicle Control system.

With an exceptional field of view from within its rounded frame, and its unique, tandem 2-seater design, the Carver resembles the sumptuous lines of an F16 fighter plane, complete with the sound of hydraulic pumps ensuring the cockpit never exceeds it’s 45 degree angle.

    Its similar to the Honda Gyro and the more Recent Piaggio MP3. Looks to be much faster though.
