The coolest new toy at the Leadfoot Festival this year.

Claimed to be a “replica” of a 1939 Auto Union Type C hillclimb car, but given that I’m pretty sure cars built just before WWII in Nazi Germany weren’t being powered by British tank engines, I think “tribute” is fairer.

Scott Dixon was at Leadfoot this year and they asked him if he’d had a go in it. He said “No, but Rod (Millen, 5 x Pikes Peak champion and Leadfoot’s host) has and he says it’s pretty scary, so I think I’ll have to sneak up on it”.

I’m betting “pretty scary” is a contender for “world’s biggest understatement”.
