ALUMINIUM-BODIED JEWEL

Lincolnshire-based Martin Batho is a clever lad. Over 25-years’ experience in sheet-metal work and welding fabrication means that he is a bit of a dab-hand at making anything you want out of the material.

Several years ago, he produced his own aluminium-bodied Lotus Seven-inspired sportscar and made a rather nice job of it. He decided to offer a kit version commercially and impressed lots of people at last year’s Stoneleigh kitcar show and suitably encouraged he has spent the last 12-months developing it further and will be at this year’s show with the latest version of the MB1.

NEW BEETLE MOTORS
