It did look better from the rear. The boot would take a whole large Tesco trolley full of groceries!
We only ever made one of this type, but we did make 15 of a later model.
It weighed under 400 kg, went like a rocket and cornered like it was on rails.
Shame about the face though...
It was Metro front sub-frame complete. My own chassis design. One Metro displacer and swinging arm at the rear. Aluminum sides. GRP one piece front and boot lid. All trim and dash was Metro.
Everyone who drove it was smitten, not with the looks but the driving.
It was THE ultimate driverís car, believe me...
