Coming soon: TG’s very own DeltaWing
And we’re going to try and take it all the way to Le Mans…

And this, dear internet, is it - the Top Gear Delta Wing. An unholy amalgam of Westfield roller-skate, sheet steel, fibreglass and many, many scrap cars.
Thus far, the recipe includes Ford Mondeo (steel wheels), Hillman Imp (steering rack), Peugeot 207 (headlights), Fiat 126 (rear deck), Morris 1000 bonnet (other bit of rear deck), general Ford (space saver front wheels with holes machined in to look like the rears), and Ford Escort (rear axle).
Then there are the fibreglass body panels. Andy says, "I know this guy up in the New Forest that's got moulds for literally anything you can think of. I went through them all and found the shapes I needed - I've turned up some pretty weird stuff..."
