Trabant nT

I've always been a fan of the Trabant 601's cheeky styling, but even the most evangelical supporter of the brand would admit that the car had its problems. Chief among these were an asthmatic two-stroke engine that, while smelling brilliant, would struggle to relieve a rice pudding of its skin, and bodywork that was inexplicably delicious to livestock. Happily, both of these issues have been addressed with the new Trabant nT: the bodywork's made of good ol' steel, while the powerplant is - wait for it - electric.

The nT is just a prototype for now, while investors are sought. But if it enters production, it'll apparently only cost about £7000 to buy one. Which is fantastic news.
