Wielding the B50D doesn't take a huge leap of imagination, the only difference to an ordinary car being that the transmission's automated via a little key pad, which also controls the three locking differentials, tipping body, lights and air-con (remember, these things work in the Middle East and Africa where temperatures regularly reach 40 degrees Celsius).
