Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

What gets 70 miles to the gallon, cruises along at 50 mph and runs on three wheels? The RTM Tango, a little egg-shaped scooter-car. The company, RTM Group Inc. is based in Miami and builds the three-wheelers in Uruguay. Although the vehicle cannot travel on the interstate, it does sport a windshield, a roof, a dashboard, a trunk and reverse gears. Scooter dealers in Florida received their first shipments of Tangos last month. The car comes in bright, primary colors.

Cost: about $7,000 Cost for a 2.6-gallon fill up: $8. Karma: priceless.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
