Top Gear vs mutant trike
Crazy part-car-part-bike Can-Am Spyder is a quick, curious and massively entertaining plaything. We love it

It's a bit of a weirdo, the Spyder. What we have here is a part-car-part-bike mutant that actually looks like a snowmobile on wheels, which it sort of is. BRP - the company behind it - made the world's first Ski-Doo in 1959, and the Spyder shares the same Y-shaped footprint as its snowy relative. But whatever it is, it can be ridden (or is it driven?) with a regular driving licence, so there's no need to wobble around earning a bikist certificate before swinging a leg over.
