good summer Mr. David, Very Happy

I asked this question in the forum with the opportunity to get at least one answer, I should already be satisfied given its timely response because only an Englishman can understand what was really this cute little car of the '70s.

rFactor has made countless cars ranging in many areas more than I had thought during the purchase of the game in the supermarket many years ago, and today after some time I could learn to do something to implement the cars of the famous modders among which stands out your name among the first.

The Bound Bug is a three-wheeled vehicle therefore very particular by nature, as its simple but effective mechanics allowed it to run like a normal traditional car. The very futuristic line allows you to have a small space between the famous rFactor cars and it is for this reason that I wrote this message.

Mr. David, perhaps as I thought it is too far from the projects you have made during these years, in fact it is enough to remember the models of F1, F2, F5000, Lola, Formula Atlantic, Indy and many others because I do not have an effective list concerning them although I do not want to give her the task of realizing new cars but simply I am happy to remember how many beautiful cars the British made during the arrival of my birth.

Three wheels means that you can drive them on a motorbike license. I believe that you could drive them at the of 16, when a car is 17 years old.

:conduit: In Italy you need the driving license (driving license B) for each vehicle that exceeds 31 mph plus insurance in case of accidents.




The pretty little Bond Bug would need some modification to look like a racing model
, such as the modified APE model Piaggio just enough to run and notice it's a three-wheeled vehicle.

The  Ape Piaggio is the most colorful and versatile vehicle in Italy, she has made the history to the italian streets, to transport the fruits cassettes to have a oven on top for pizzas and so many many others stuffs on it.
The model was directly from Vespa Piaggio, in fact  almost all the models have a steering like Vespa not a Wheel, just a few from 80' years.

Anyone who has had or driven this vehicle, had the funny experience of breaking down on one side cause of the 3 wheels sistem, and with a heavy overload on the rear the vheicle, you recive a raise up
on front, with loss of front-wheel drive.
lol!

Unfortunately I never came around to photograph it when I was there, but there was a really beautiful vintage Ape with cabin and platform stategically well placed besides the coastal road halfways between Castellamare di Stabbia and Sorrento, offering the famed local lemon products. One had a lot of time looking (and stopping by, when not travelling by coach) at that vehicle and its tasty offerings when passing through the jam that forms every evening at that bottleneck. Arriving at the first evening there, seeing that very Ape was the pivotal moment where I knew 'Yay, Italy! Finally there!!' Smile

And from an aestheticists point of view, the Ape is not as awkward looking as its teutonic counterparts Tempo:



or Goliath:

I look like the Bond Bug predecessor. Bond 875 and according to WikiPedia,John Surtees had been driving that car at 1965 in Brands Hatch Indy circuit and setting lap time 1:22 at over 100mph

...no, I don't think that
Relliant Robin,The three wheel car with longest production line.Over 30 year with 3 model

It also used for banger racing

What I meant is: It is fan art, taking the art style of The Peanuts for the two main characters of Urusei Yatsura.

I am a fan of Rumiko Takahashi and have read/seen her work:

One Pound Gospel
Maison Ikkoku
Ranma 1/2
Inuyasha
Kyokai no Rinne

But due to it never having been released here, I haven't gotten into her first big series(Urusei Yatsura).
