Hmmmm… No pictures of the actual machine and a dodgy description referring to a suspension front fork (which it obviously doesn't have).

Tread very carefully...

To be fair, it doesn't say active suspension but it's wrong abou no other carbon trikes available (Performer and Bacchetta/CarbonTrikes). No boom adjustement on these so sizing is critical. Would definitely want photos and to go and see. Thing is, you can buy a new VTX for the money.

This looks genuine. Here are a couplke of articles on it:

https://www.blessthisstuff.com/stuff/vehicles/cycles/innesenti-the-ultimate-sports-machine/

From the image this looks like the "Touring" machine.

Good newsClap
 The vendor is the original designer and it was built for his wife .
But remember ……...probably no back up if you have a crump ……..and the design is not proven 
As for the carbon construction = lightest  ......…
Ask the for the precise weight which has been overlooked in the limited description .
It's very much a Cinderella machine ……….and will it really fit you ?? 
Of course if you have the dosh and happy with a single studio image 
just chuck the £3000 plus asking price his way Confused
My advice ……...proceed with caution or buy a Catrike 700 /Windcheetah/ICE VTX/Bacchetta trike .
