Product Idea

Bond Bug

You never heard about this car?

The idea was very simple: make the famous "Top Gear" Reliant Robin cooler.

Without joking, this car was really produced. 

And yes, it is tangerine ...

 

Here's the full story of my model ... :

 

History

The idea of the Bond Bug was to produce a car for the masses, with a futuristic design. Its concurrent was the Austin Mini. Designed by Tom Karen (Ogle Design), it was produced more than 2000 times between 1970 and 1974. The little 4 cylinder was a cracker (faster accelerating than the mini), but the price not (more than the mini). That’s why production was stopped in '74.
