Can-Am unveils Spyder F3 Turbo concept.


This is the latest three-wheeler ‘motorcycle’ – well, people claim it’s a motorcycle, we’ll leave it up to you to judge for yourselves – from Can-Am.


The Spyder F3 Turbo was unveiled at the Daytona circuit and the biggest draw for the concept seems to be that now a rider can perform rear-wheel drifts when wanted.

Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) are the makes of the Can-Am say that this concept isn’t planned for production, which makes this ‘launch’ a bit of a puzzle as to why it’s happened at all – but it did.



This vehicle, powered by a Rotax 1330cc turbocharged and intercooled engine, goes from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.3 seconds and does a quarter-mile (0.4 km) in 12.3 seconds. It also features SPORT mode that allows for controlled rear tire drifts.

“BRP’s Rotax engineers challenged themselves to develop a turbo version of the Can-Am Spyder F3 engine, which resulted in this high-performance vehicle. Our team then fine-tuned everything to unleash its potential,” said Rénald Plante, director, Can-Am Spyder engineering: “This concept showcases the advantages of a Y-frame design, such as a lower center of gravity, the ability to drift and superb tire grip during aggressive cornering.”
