I find it entertaining how people, who I would assume have never driven a car this low, especially the particular car in question, rag on how "un-usable" it is, when everytime a car this low comes up, the articles always say often it is driven, and on everyday streets...
Articles lie. Remember the "250GTO" Internet post of the "Car"Culture Show"... It was a 240 Z in a body kit.
Speaking as someone who HAS "driven" cars that low since about 1984, I say it comes down to your definition of drive able. . The BRE Z was more drive able than this car, and it's higher. I "drove" our Bonneville Car for a while---we lift it 2" to go run Willow Springs.
There's a reason cars like this that are driven use airbags: they way they are photographed "down in the weeds" results in an UNDRIVEABLE car. You are a moving hazard on the roadway you are so slow (and usually darty...)
They may SAY something, but those are words. I'll put money on the guy with the Moped for five laps around the Albertsons parking lot in Richmond any day over this vehicle.
Seriously, you actually BELIEVE this car is driven at any sort of normal speed anywhere? If you have, you've never been around nor in them.
I'd suggest reviewing some Carlos Santana and "War" albums for appropriate subject listening.
