It's American! Don't expect Italian styling.  :)  (Not at first anyway).

The problem Elio has is deciding what his market is. Americans are not
known for volume buying of slow bare-bones cars, even if they are
economical. Elio seems to be trying to cover his bases by having a
basic model and allowing customers to load it up with as many goodies
as they want.
Then he will see what sells, and probably upgrade the basic to include
the popular options.

And somebody is bound to fit turbo chargers and nitro injection.  ;)
