Campagna Developing Six-Cylinder T-Rex

Campagna Developing Six-Cylinder T-Rex

It goes without saying that the Campagna T-Rex is one of the most unique vehicles currently on sale, and the simple fact we’ve called it a ‘vehicle’ rather than a car plays testament to its uniqueness is because it only features three wheels, a motorcycle engine and no doors.

The current top of the line Campagna T-Rex is dubbed the 14R and utilises a tiny Kawasaki derived four-cylinder engine producing 197hp and 113lb-ft of torque. When combined with the low overall weight of just 1,040 pounds, the Campagna T-Rex 14R is actually quite the performance machine, even though its looks may indicate otherwise.

And just a few weeks ago, Campagna announced it had reached a deal with BMW to provide engines for upcoming T-Rex models and the company has just announced that a more powerful, six-cylinder variant of the T-Rex is currently in the works.

The new T-Rex will feature BMW’s Motorrad 1.6-liter in-line six-cylinder engine as well as advanced electronics, including a driving mode selector from BMW.

Set to be dubbed the Campagna T-Rex 16S, the new addition is set to go on sale in June and will top the T-Rex line-up with an Alpine audio system, Sirius satellite radio and Bluetooth connectivity.
