Sammy Hagar 3-wheel car avail in 2011

Sammy Hagar can’t drive 55…

...because his new 3-wheel car goes from 0-60 in under 4 seconds.

Autoblog reports Talon Motors unveiled its new Invader at this year’s Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas last month.

Power for the Invader is provided in spades, thanks to a 1,300-cc Suzuki Hayabusa engine mated to a six-speed sequential transmission. The powertrain provides enough scoot to move this reverse trike from 0-60 miles per hour in under four seconds. Keep going and you'll eventually hit the top speed of 150 mph.

Those speeds require serious hardware to keep things safe, and the Invader delivers with a fully adjustable suspension setup. A set of cross-drilled Wilwood rotors and four-piston calipers quickly bring things back within legal limits.

Pricing for the standard Invader begins at $42,900, with a host of optional features being made available.

Talon Motors isn't just stopping there however... the Invader builder has teamed up with former Van Halen front-man Sammy Hagar to produce a limited-edition signature series.

The "Red Rocker" edition Invader will incorporate custom design elements created between Hagar and Talon Motors, and it will go on sale sometime in 2011.
