The Campagna T-Rex is a two-seat, three-wheeled motor vehicle created by the Campagna Corporation, located in Quebec, Canada. It has a 1.4 L, straight-four engine.[1] Although it is usually registered as a motorcycle, the interior can accommodate the driver and a single passenger seated side-by-side, with adjustable seat backs, a foot-pedal box, and retractable three-point seat belts. The manual transmission, controlled by hand, more closely resembles a motorcycle's transmission than that of a car.

The T-Rex has been commercially available since the early 1990s. The Campagna T-Rex was designed and styled by Deutschman Design.
