C5 to make a comeback ?
« on: 07, August, 2009 - 20:51:40 »
This is an article from The Times newspaper last week (Thursday July 30th") ;


A copy of the text;

The entrepreneur Sir Clive Sinclair is still busy "inventing one or two things, but I can't talk about them". He is best remembered for early computers,calculators and the C5 three-wheeled battery driven car,which he says could make a comeback. He's promoting his foldaway bicycle, which can fit inside a rucksack. he has nothing special planned for his birthday - "next year perhaps".Sir Clive Sinclair is 69 today

It might just be a "tongue in cheek" comment , but wouldn't it be great to see a re-launch of the C5 !

It would be great if he was to lunch a modern C5, as Umpa said with modern technology I reckon it would be more successful with the cycle paths available to use etc today.
