Reliant Robin

You may not consider the Reliant Robin a car since it technically had only three wheels, but for the sake of this article, we’ll list it regardless. Now, there are lots of actual cars with just 3 wheels, but most of them don’t have the Robin’s ridiculous configuration. Instead of the traditional two wheels at the front one at the back layout, Reliant decided to completely reinvent the segment by placing one wheel at the front and two at the rear. The result was a spectacular crash waiting to happen anytime you went over 25 mph around a corner. The car would immediately start to tilt, and exceeding 45 degrees of angle would cause a complete rollover. The car’s popularity in England was a result of its rarity, gaining a small cult following.
