2002 Alligator A-6

Third Floor - History

Conceived by noted racer and engineer Dan Gurney, the high-performance Alligator was designed for the rider to sit in rather than on. This unique arrangement lowered the center of gravity for better handling and offered a more comfortable seating position for tall riders like Gurney himself. The body was made of carbon fiber, a strong, lightweight material that is only now seeing mainstream automotive use.
