All steamed up about Landy that’s a hoot!
Proud owner Frank Rothwell with Mildred, his steampowered Land Rover THIS 2CV is a record breaker - although it will be no surprised to hear not in terms of top speed.
The 2CVat70 is a project to set a new record by turning a 1985 2CV Dolly into the world’s smallest food truck with a custom, state-of-the-art stainless steel kitchen built into the back of the vehicle.
Visitors to next month’s Confused. com London Motor Show (17 to 20 May) will be able to see the record breaker when she parks up at the ‘Built in Britain’ feature before continuing her journey across the UK.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the 2CV, a vehicle designed for French farmers to replace the cart and two horses (deux chevaux) - hence its name.
An expert team had just six weeks to make the transformation. It will serve a wide range of cuisine during the tour, from cheese soufflé to Korean BBQ. See www.thelondonmotorshow.co.uk At the Geneva Motor Show, Morgan Motor Company revealed its most extreme road-going model to date, the Aero GT (above) – and the first edition has now rolled off the production line.
Morgan Motor Company will produce just eight of the special Aero GT variants – all individually built bespoke to customer specification.
The Aero GT represents the end of Aero 8 production. Powered by the same 367bhp BMW N62 V8 engine used in the Aero 8, the Aero GT will travel from 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 170mph.
Each Aero GT will be built with Morgan’s latest adjustable suspension and come with manual transmission.
Customer will have an individual design consultancy with Jon Wells, Morgan’s Head of Design, before the car enters production.
Enamelled ‘GT’ badges signify the model variant and each is individually hand made by a British jeweller.
The interior is hand-finished with a series of painted stitching and pinstripe accents, and there is an extended choice of wood options.
And the price? From around £120,000, but don’t be surprised if they are all already sold!
