Fit a 60 mph+ electric racing kart in the trunk of your Prius

Superheroes of today having nothing on the heroes of yesteryear, but that hasn’t stopped designer Beau Reid from creating the only means of transportation that would make any clockwatching cubicle monkey feel like Ghost Rider whipping around corners at 60mph. Reid, of Beau Designs, has created the GK2G: an F1-inspired go-kart concept with true mobility in mind, all powered by a true electric engine. While most go-karts require a pick-up truck or trailer to haul it around, Reid’s newest design allows the GK2G’s chassis — made almost entirely from carbon fiber — to fold neatly and be transported in almost every mid-size car. Bonus: The GK2G is powered by a high power electric motor fed by lithium-ion batteries. Therefore, the go-kart not only gives the thrill seeker an environmentally friendly option, but also one that’s lightweight and extremely mobile to boot. The GK2G measures just 30″ x 30″ x 15″ with an expected overall weight of under 65 lbs (30 kgs), making it an incredibly handy option. The only catch? You have to remove the steering wheel and rims off first, making that folding action more complicated than your average bicycle. Now you got no excuse not to hit the track, even if you drive a Prius…
