We’ve said it before, pilots “get” the Elio! The cockpit-like seating, the aerodynamics, and the capabilities of a 3-cylinder engine all make for a unique approach to ultra fuel efficiency and fun. Unlike Bill Braack’s “Smoke-n-Thunder” jet fuel racer, we won’t be breaking any land/speed records. But, we also won’t be breaking the piggy bank at the fuel pump either. While the Rocket Red Elio can reach over 100 mph, its ultimately the low base price that has folks racing for a place in line. Here’s a look at our weekend at the Reno Air Races:
Bill is from Sparks, NV and has been following Elio Motors since he first heard about us on the Lars Larson show. Bill’s first impression was “IT’S PERFECT!.” He plans on a Creamsicle Elio with his company logo in a clever wrap. Perfect indeed!
