Steve, Sorry to jump in your post but "Switchback" what is that Red 3 Wheeler on the back of your QQ ?, over here there are not so many variants of cars (possibly a Kit Car) like there are in the U.K., so I am lost - Thanks ;)
It's a Grinnall Scorpion. You can buy them either factory or home built. The power train and transmission are from a BMW motorcycle. There are a few in Germany and many in the States, somewhere around 400 worldwide.

Thanks to Sanke & Switchback supplying pics of their cars - Dave :)
Naturally out here in Berlin AMG's are pretty popular being a German Manufacturer, but the Grinnall Scorpion is something else and very different. It is highly likely the BMW Motor came from Berlin where there is a large Manufacturing Plant.

Well I picked her up today. Just need to get use to the low clutch biting point, fit the bonnet protector and source a front skid plate.

Sanke, good for you enjoy your time with it. I think you need to get your pics sorted (correct orientation and complete QQ) to really show the QQ off - Dave ;)

Hi Dave,

The pics are correct on the phone, it's the upload that puts them sideways.

As for the QQ, well I'm keeping it for 18months (that's about the time limit I get boted) and then I'll have a look at the new version.

Steve
