The TriVette was an American three wheeled vehicle. It was designed and built in California by Bob Keyes from 1974 to 1978.[1][2]

The TriVette was designed to meet all state and federal motorcycle standards, but was enclosed like a saloon car.[3] The running gear was mostly derived from a Fiat 850 with a turbo Volkswagen motor as an option.[4] The TriVette achieved over 61 MPG and, unlike most three-wheelers, was known for its handling.[5]

Keyes also designed a larger V8 engined version, the Viglante, which out accelerated and out handled most supercars of the time.[6] Keyes died before the Viglante reached full production.[7][8][9]
