Autotrivia quiz – Friday September 14 – September 20, 2012


Last week, I asked what car carried its own commuter bicycle beside the driver and passenger?  It was the Zagato Z-Eco, based on the Fiat 500, with an electric bicycle alongside, which was kept charged up by the car.  Novel, but Fiat didn’t want it, so it was consigned to the tip!

So to this week.  What car was this?  It had an under 10 horsepower, 346 cc Villiers twin engine.  The engine drove only one back wheel.  The body was plastic, so should have been indestructible.  20 cars were made as the pilot study, of which only two remain.  There were problems with overheating and weak drive shafts.  It was undesirable as well.  So, what was this car?
