Of course, the hotdog-on-a-bun-shaped vehicle has evolved over the years, even welcoming the WienerMini and the WienerRover. But now the family is growing even more with the addition of two new models, the WienerCycle and the WienerDrone.
The WienerCycle is what it says it is. It’s a three-wheeled moped that carries the same hotdog-on-a-bun look as its big brothers.

Not only is it the world’s first ever “unmanned hot dog-carrying aircraft,” but it also brings to life our dreams of one day seeing hot dogs raining down from the sky.
