The Tory Burch Electric Tricycle is not so much a means of eco transport as a statement of obnoxiousness. The fact that it can only be found in the ultra exclusive Nieman Marcus Christmas Catalogue makes it even more bizarre, nestling alongside the gas guzzling special edition drophead Jacuzzis or whatever. For those with the $4500.00 available to squander on one of these garish trinkets, good luck to you and your pretentiousness. You’re clearly made for each other.
Better yet, this gift features styling by Tory Burch. In the back, two passengers can ride in comfort on plush bucket seats with swivel armrests, seat belts, a footboard, and a retractable canopy top. And you don’t have to worry about the driver up front. When he or she tires of pedaling, a flip of a switch activates a clean-energy electric drive system. A custom designed industrial-quality frame and durable wide-track tires provide safety and stability for every excursion, as do the turn signals and flashing LED pedals.
