Shooting Star. Please see below for other photographs of the vehicle.
DIDIK SHOOTING STAR (tm) The uniquely designed and specially
engineered Didik Shooting Star, with its 360 degree clear high impact
cockpit resembles a cross between a Flash Gorden rocket ship and the
first manmade satellite, the Russian "Sputnik". The vehicle
was designed with three things in mind, low center of gravity for
superior handling, an extremely quiet interior and a functional as
well as unique design. At first glance, the vehicle may appear to
have unnecessary ornamentation. The fact is that every every designed
element serves an important technical function. For example, the
chromed side bars are in fact side impact bumpers. The six rear
chromed "jet engine bars" serve as both bumper/crush zones
as well as housings for the 6 miniature reflectors. The polished
aluminum body is designed to increase safety by increasing its
visibility to other drivers. The vehicle is constructed of welded
thin walled steel tubing, and is sheathed in aircraft quality
aluminum skin for maximum strength. The vehicle has four wheels,
however, unlike a conventional automobile, the Didik Shooting Star
has one wheel in the front, one wheel in the back and two wheels in
the center. The handling can only be described as
breathtaking...superior to virtually all conventional automobiles.
The vehicle is propelled by both an electric motor and an emergency
gasoline engine. Under New York State law, the vehicle is classified
as a motorcycle.

The DIDIK Shooting Star is a concept vehicle not intended for regular
production. Nevertheless, it incorporates many interesting
technologies and safety features. Should this vehicle be put into
production, it is estimated that it could be produced for as low as
$4500. For additional information, kindly contact us via e-mail.
The Didik Shooting Star was designed and
constructed by Frank Didik who has built a large number of solar,
electric, human and hybrid powered vehicles, aircraft and racing
vehicles. If you represent a manufacturing enterprise or a
