In this episode of Doug DeMuro, we delve into the fascinating world of the tuk tuk, also known as the auto rickshaw. These peculiar little vehicles are a common sight in many parts of Africa and Asia, serving as an essential mode of transportation. But what makes this particular tuk tuk so special is that it's currently up for auction on Cars and Bids, and it belongs to none other than Dana White, the man behind the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Now, tuk tuks are not your typical private vehicles; they're primarily used for commercial purposes such as transporting goods or serving as taxis. The driver sits up front, while passengers are seated in the back. In fact, in some parts of the world, tuk tuks are the only form of taxi available. But this tuk tuk owned by Dana White is a bit different. It's adorned with chrome railings and features a vibrant, multicolored bench seat that adds a touch of flair.

Under the hood, you'll find a modest engine, typically ranging from 350 to 650 CCS, generating around 12 to 20 horsepower. It's a simple, no-frills setup, with a carburetor and air cooling. The controls are a unique blend of motorcycle and car components. You steer with handlebars, accelerate by twisting a grip, and use pedals for clutch and brake. Shifting gears is done through a traditional gear lever, conveniently located in the middle of the vehicle.

Inside, the tuk tuk offers a basic yet functional layout. There's a windshield with a wiper, a set of unlabeled switches, and dials for battery and engine temperature. The ignition is within easy reach, as is the horn, which is a vital tool for navigating the bustling streets of Thailand, where tuk tuks are a common sight.

Overall, this tuk tuk owned by Dana White is a unique and quirky vehicle that perfectly represents the charm of these little three-wheeled wonders. And if you're interested in owning a piece of automotive history while supporting a good cause, head over to Cars and Bids to bid on this tuk tuk, with all proceeds going to the Four Oceans charity. It's a chance to own a true conversation starter and experience the joy of tuk tuk motoring firsthand.
