THE STEALTH PHALLUS LIVES! Yep, our homespun tribute to the mighty Nissan DeltaWing racer is alive, well and runs as smoothly as liver pâté. But getting here's been a bit of a battle...
After we hatched this rather last minute plan with Nissan to make our TG mag Le Mans coverage that little bit more fun (see posts passim), creator Andy Saunders - one of the world's finest custom car builders - has thrown 337 hours at creating a rather splendid replica of the experimental racer ready for this weekend's Le Mans 24 Hours. And several of those weren't terribly fun.
