Aside from the unusual bodywork the W3 Triposto also features
a three seat layout with the driver in a central position flanked

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.
