It's an all-aluminum completely encased electric-aid MaxxVelo velomobile, manufactured by Austin's Michael White. Despite the fact that it was initially intended to be the first in a line of financially created velomobiles, it wound up being the one and only of its kind ... what's more now, you can purchase it.
