A Goblin, and it's not Halloween any longer!
This is a Sun USX trike with a Subaru Robin or Honda 33 - 50 cc gas engine mounted onto an industrial strength gearbox with a partial velomobile body. The drive is by Staton, and what is really interesting is that Staton is working on a bolt on electric motor for the same drivetrain, thus making the Goblin a three way hybrid vehicle - human, gas, electric power! Were it only totally enclosed! Price point (in US$) is right where Bluevelo in Toronto has placed their Team velomobile. Interesting!
