Autotrivia quiz – Friday September 7 – September 13, 2012


Last week, I mentioned the mighty Mercedes W 125.  I noted that they ran a leather strap over the bonnet at Donnington and not at the German GP.

I asked why?  Very simple, it was British scrutineers who insisted that all bonnets had to have a leather strap, even though the Mercedes closing system was better than a bit of cow across the bonnet.  The Europeans accepted the Mercedes technology, while the Brits didn’t.  There you are, ‘real’ trivia!

So to this week.  What car carried its own commuter bicycle beside the driver and passenger?
