The phrase "because race car" comes to mind with this 1958 Gogomobil. At no point in its life has the Gogomobil shown any sign of sporting aptitude but that just makes this car even better- it's well documented that the cheapest, most basic, underpowered cars are also some of the most fun, so racing a Gogomobil must be a complete hoot. 

This model is the TS400, which has a 392cc engine, reduced weight wherever they can (just like a Lotus!) and you can just imagine the fun of having an entire racing league of these guys. Heading to auction at Auctions America this is one of around 540 Gogomobiles to be sold in the US. Estimated value is $18,000-22,000.
