Mystery Car

Kamil Kaluski May 18, 2018 Mystery Car 17 Comments

Last week’s Mystery Car was identified pretty quickly by . Special credit should be given because it was an obscure French military vehicle that few people have actually ever seen. The fact that I used a picture that I found on the internet made it somewhat easier. Good job!

But that is not the case this week. Today we have a picture I took myself and it was a of a vehicle that I never wrote about. As usual, make and model, please. Engine for super extra credit.

    BAC Mono!

      It was my first thought, but it doesn’t seem to fit:

  • Thanks, but the bulk of the credit for last week’s solution should go to Rover 1 for narrowing it down to a Laffly.

    • smalleyxb122

      Rover 1 definitely did the heavy lifting on that one, but nailing the make doesn’t get the win.

      • Right. Make AND model. Or in the case of last week ” make and hopefully model name”

    • Rover 1

      Thanks for your kind words, I should have done a google image search for a tan one. My video showed the six wheeled vehicle in action though!

  • Papa Van Twee

    The fuel filler cap looks like it’s a hydrogen vehicle. But nothing I’ve found in my search fits it.

  • Brad Epp

    Superlite Le Mans?

  • Zenos E10. If I have to be more specific, I’ll guess E10 S.

    • Zentropy

      Holy crap, why would anyone have ever heard of this anomaly? Have they even built more than 100 cars???

      • Zentropy

        Ok, I looked them up. Turns out they did manage a bit more than 100 cars before they went bankrupt, and are planning to move production out of the UK (big surprise there) and into South Africa.
        Maybe next week’s Mystery Car can be an obscure shot of one of the many frankenstein AMCs I built as a teen. Perhaps under Kamil’s rules I may actually qualify as an automobile manufacturer, too.

        • Rover 1

          Production enough for a web-site.

          • Zentropy

            Oh, I was just being intentionally salty because I Kamil had me stumped. Again.

            With a 200-hp engine and a 5-speed, I thought it sounded pretty fun, until I realized it only comes as an open roadster, and that it starts at $36k.

      • I believe Richard Hammond drove one on an episode of Top Gear or the Grand Tour.

        • It was the Grand Tour:

          • outback_ute

            I remember that, but it would have taken me a while to get the answer I think. I was up to “lightweight sports car that is not an Ariel Atom.

            The Zenos seems to be one of those cars that could do with some added simplicity, to cut costs.

            • Oh, I only remembered that connection after I knew what it was. No way I was going to remember it from the mystery car shot. 😀
