Mooncraft 6x4.com. This is a weird one, I'm not sure what to think of it hehe . Start with a Smart Fortwo, chop the body to lower it, add an axle at the back and make a body around it all. The company also designed the Tommy Kaira ZZ, Yamaha OX99-11 and Tamiya Big Wig RC car.

This has the standard Smart 61bhp engine, the other rear axle has 96bhp through the electric motors. So it's a hybrid biggrin .

It's as mad as a mad thing, I could have put it in the badly modified thread, but I kind of like it, I think.
Lots of 6 wheeled cars here:-

Any more info? Please tell me its RWD?
Yes, RWD. There’s a dedicated FB page for it: Mk 4 Escort Rwd Turbo Project (sorry, don’t know how to add link smile)
Love that. About 5 years ago there was a pre production MK3 RWD on eBay and it only made about £1200. I was gutted that I missed it.
Really?! That would have been what Ford planned to rally before going with the Sierra (I seem to have a very hazy memory of it being something along those lines.. although someone feel free to tell the proper story) I would have thought that would have been 5 figures not 4 figures.

Love the BMW powered MK3.
That sounds deeply unlikely - the "real" car was the RS1700T which is rare as hens' and very few escaped in to the wild, that was probably a tired Gartrac or home-made jobbie.
I know what you're saying. I didn't even bid because I assumed it would be way out of my reach. It was certainly listed as being genuine and from memory, was registered on a V reg' plate. I assumed it was basically a MK2 floorpan in a MK3? Either way, it was well worth the price it made. It wasn't an RS1700 though, just a rear drive MK3. Sorry, I should probably have been clearer. smile

It'll be a Gartrac shell they built a number of these for RWD/4WD drivetrains & North south power plants.

Looks quite subtle from the outside but it’s track / time attack spec. Not sure I’ve seen a nicer R33



Annoyingly I’m fairly sure this one is a render but I’d blummin love it as a daily driver

That's what the replacement Ford KA should have been. Squeeze in the 1.0 3 cylinder engine and you could make some great cars and a rally hero.

I agree with you on the strength of that pic but then I Googled images of Suzuki Twin.
Changed my mind now.

This. This is what I would buy if I won the lottery. But with an original engine.

Because Condorman.
