Not a car, of course, but a quadricycle, a legal nicety that in no way excuses its many crimes against humanity. The scourge of all right-thinking TG readers, but beloved of tofu-munching sandalistas, the G-Wiz's rise to urban proliferation - in London, at least - was surely one of the most depressing trends of the past two decades. Ugly, badly made and distressingly engineered, the G-Wiz was also genuinely dangerous, as we pointed out in issue 166, and Euro NCAP and tragically a coroner's court later confirmed. We're unsure if it's the vehicle's innate hatefulness that most riles us, or the fact that otherwise intelligent people sacrificed common sense on the altar of trendy but ultimately wafer-thin eco-awareness to be seen to be doing the right thing. Both, probably.
