It's a genuine replica original copy of a Saucer!   
"Men of worth act like men of worth, and men of genius, who produce
things beautiful and excellent, shine forth far better when other people
praise them than when they boast so confidently of their own achievements."
-Benvenuto Cellini

... Being a microcar virgo owner I was puzzeled over the left foot braking that Chris Thomas kept mentioning. I have never found this to be needed whilst driving my car ,I use the right foot for both pedals like an other automatic. I test drove the MC1 myself and drove it the traditional way with no problems at all . Just thought I would mention it in case it was putting any potential buyers off....

I second that.  I drive my Ligier one footed just like a normal automatic, keeping my left foot well out of the way.  Left footed braking, IMO, sounds like a good way of wearing out both the brakes and the drive belt.

Thanks lads ,I feel vindicated now! Im sure that a driving instructer would have a fit if a pupil suggested driving an auto with both feet!

Why not, I found that was the only way to drive the automatic Toyota Corola I had on the banger track a few years ago, that suddenly selected reverse all by itself when leading the pack on the fast part of the track. I can remember the Volvo estate that was chasing me. and I destinctly remember my own rear subframe pasing my left ear at some point, but not much else about it! It drove off afterwards though!!!

 What do you mean "I've posted this on the wrong forum"???
