GPZ1100 HCS Rear-engined 'Slug'

Built in 1987 for Glynn Sparkes.  

The rear-engined layout inevitably resulted in an even longer wheel-base than the Quasar at 88" which, combined with HCS meant that a substantial turning circle was inevitable.  In spite of this the 'Slug' has proved to be quite a practical road-going vehicle.
