What is Borsi car like?

Postby chornedsnorkack » Wed Apr 25, 2018 10:44 am

Quoted as the lightest car around... dated from 1900.
Top speed 25 km/h.
And the weight is 9,5 kg.

Does anyone know the specifics of the layout?

There is quite some information available on Peel P50, but it´s 59 kg.

Can't find any pictures of it on the net but it was built by Louis Borsi, had a 2.5cc engine and a top speed of 15mph. I had an Rc plane with a larger engine.

In 1900, many Cars etc, and Motorcycles chassis were made of wood!
