Reliant Robin and large beard fan Bernard Reeves reached breaking point after seeing so many Reliant Robins being tipped over and generally mocked after the airing of a Top Gear episode featuring Jeremy Clarkson haplessly flipping an old Robin onto it’s side time and time again.

Although the episode in question was hilarious, it was a damned shame to see so many classic Robins being abused on the streets, Mr Reeves decided to step in and create a Robin that no one in their right mind would mess with.

Meet the Reliant Rugged Robin, it’s an original Robin that’s been pulled to bits and rebuilt A-Team style. The matte green little beast has tank tracks fitted at the rear as well as a Browning .50 cal machine gun, a pair of Vickers machine guns, long-range radio communications gear, an outboard engine, a spot light and built in long range fuel tanks.

I can’t help but hope that this car gets featured on Top Gear, I’d pay good money to see the Stig setting a hot lap in it and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
