This video is about the most particular vehicle of the 2019 Concorso d'Eleganza of Villa d'Este in Italy. It's called Gyro-X and it's a 2-wheeled prototype able to stay and drive perfectly balanced thanks to a gyroscope (55 cm in diameter) fitted in the front. The project was born in 1967, designed by Alex Tremulis and gyroscope specialist Tom Summers, with a budget of $750,000 (about $6 million today) but it was soon abandoned due to Gyrocar Company's bankrupt, ran out of funds to perfect the product. After all these years, Gyro-X chassis had a complicated history, losing its gyroscope too, until it ended up in the hands of Lane Motor Museum in Nashville.

KD : Looks like something Mr Bean would drive

William Magalhães : que agonia, anda mais rápido cara!!

Johnathan Doe : Those stabiliser bars don’t look original, I’m guessing the owner doesn’t have much faith in the gyro system or the ‘landing gear’ 😂

echodelta9 : I remember the Pop Sci or Pop Mechanix cover article from back then. It sure seemed cool then. ...and will be able to remain upright in an atomic blast... There were lots of hype in that article if I remember. They couldn't show how the gyro linkage worked, secret.

Carlos C. : From the back it looks like a Chevy Impala got squashed getting in a very tight parking spot.

Tony Lee : "We choose to create a balanced gyroscope car in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organise and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win, and the others, too."

stijnVDA1994 : so an anti falling motorcycle, can it go fast?
