The W3 Triposto is a striking creation developed by a father and son team consisting of Clyde and Hugh Kwok, an engineering professor and professional racing driver respectively.

The Canadian based company uses a Porsche 911 donor car for the majority of drivetrain components, usually older models from the 90's are used however most 911 models can be catered for.

The distinctive bodywork of the W3 Triposto consists of aluminium, Kevlar and fiberglass panels which help keep the weight to a respectable 1057 kgs (2330 lbs). The weight distribution is 40/60 front/rear.

Aside from the unusual bodywork the W3 Triposto also features a three seat layout with the driver in a central position flanked by a passenger seat on either side.

Equipped with a 3.6 litre flat-six engine (from the most common 911 donor car) the W3 Triposto develops 325 horsepower @ 6,100 rpm and 290 lb-ft of torque @ 4,800 rpm. This gives the car a top speed of around 185 mph.

Thanks to an integrated and welded rollcage built into the rear hump the driver and passengers are afforded some protection in the event of a rollover. The driver is also equipped with a 5 point harness for additional safety.
