XR-3 Triike => New Tri-Magnum?

Hello -

Here's another trike with 2 wheels in the front :

The prototype hasn't even hit the road yet I believe so the fuel estimates are a bit premature. I am sure though that they will be pretty good as light weight as it is. I was also wondering why he would put a 3 liter diesel engine in there when for instance an Audi A3 with a 1.4 TDI already gets 90 HP, which would be more than enough for a 1200 lbs trike and would certainly help fuel economy.
I'd definately be interested in reports once there are some real ones on the road.
