This was hilarious, I was amazed that 6'5" Clarkson fitted into this and could actually drive it. It only weighs 59kg (132 lbs) so he's heavier than the car is, you can just lift one end of this car and pull it around like a suitcase.

Clarkson loved it too. To be honest you might as well be on a scooter (though it wouldn't have the same novelty value), the only real advantage this has over a scooter would be if it was raining. But I'd probably still rather drive this than a scooter, it looks like such a laugh.

Clarkson has driven some funny vehicles in his time, I remember (years ago) he once rode a mechanical elephant.

That is the point of it - it acquires so much comic appeal you can't help but laugh at it :D

You should post a picture of when that double decker passes it, it would be a great size comparison.

Since 2 background Mercs from this "scene" have been posted (slightly irrelevant), we might as well have the bus listed, because it was shown for size comparison.

Only about 20 units survive today. They retail between 35,000-50,000 pounds! So for the same price, you could buy a brand new Mercedes... or this.
Hmmm.. let me think that over for a minute :think:

The Finnish old car magazine, Mobilisti, drove a local exemplar in their newest issue, note the additional blinkers on the roof, said to be from Morris lorry.
In the cover it is being dragged to Helsinki metro train.

That first picture is of paticular interest. Cos if you look at the numberplates of those two, its the exact same peels that appeared on Top Gear. Does this mean that they were replicas (which should then be added to extra info) and not the real deal?

dermot muegnehan grabbed the back of the peel because it has NO reverse gear, and spun it round the wrong way.

Which "other cases" :??:
I have to add Isle of Man flag to the list, I know, but it is still somewhat linked to UK (i.e. not 100% independent)

The Mercosur flag. You never add this flag. I trying to submit a vehicle developed by Argentina and Brazil FF.AA. and not have the Mercosur flag, because its not correct add any of two flags.

It is just a commercial agreement between countries, not a country in itself...
There are many cases where there is not just one country, later it will be possible to have two countries for a car, but for now just live with it :p

You'll save a problem with the flag of Mercosur (in the case of the Gaucho).
And maybe it is correct to use the flag of the European Union for the Escort. But well, it's just "subjective" ;)

The EU flag is much more global, and didn't exist at the time of some of the concerned models...
