Italian composites specialist ATR Group, known for producing the carbon-fiber bodies and chassis of supercars such as the Ferrari Enzo and the Porsche Carrera GT, introduced the SLC (Super Light Car) K200 microcar in 2005. Thanks to its carbon-fiber construction, the two-and-a-half meter long K200 only weighs 300 kg (660 lbs). Its 20 hp, two-cylinder, four-stroke engine allows it to reach a top speed of 68 mph (110 km/h).
The K200 may look like, and even drive like, a normal passenger car but it is actually registered in Europe as a “heavy quad” (All Terrain Vehicle in the US). Quads and ATVs do not have to meet the same emission and safety requirements that regular cars do; subsequently the production costs are much lower.
The K200 is marketed as an exotic microcar, with features such as F1-style paddle shifters behind the steering wheel and unusual “helilift” scissor-style doors. The model seen here is the coupe in the “Sport” trim level. The convertible “Tender” version is even lighter, and designed to be utilized as a tender for yachts. Yachts and other large boats usually contain smaller secondary vessels known as tenders used for shore access or as fun run-abouts. An autotender is a class of car that fits inside the cramped quarters of a yacht’s garage.
