behind an RV. (per Jim Tervort, designer and bulder). This particular Zzipper was the prototype machine for the several Zzippers that were built, and suffers some of the difficulties found typically in prototype concept cars. It is a real show stopper and gathers crowds at EV shows. Bought from the Sebring AutoCycle company and delivered by them to my address in California.
