Known History

Which machine goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds? A supercar? Yes! But also this Bond Bug, whose top speed can exceed 200 km/h! Obviously, originally it was a Bond Bug 700 ES. The Bug was the last car produced by Bond. Designed by Ogle, the body was made by Reliant in fiberglass, and then assembled at Bond. The Bug was positioned as a "sporting" three-wheeled cyclecar. This is a typical 1970s vehicle, with its unique color: a bright orange!

The previous owner, a Franco-English, decided to modify the original engine by inserting a Yamaha YZF-R1's, a 1-litre 4-cylinders, 4-stroker with a 6-speed gearbox! The running gears have obviously been modified to support the power. The motorcycle's dashboard was also placed on this Bug.

This is a real rocket, registered with a French tricycle registration card. The transformation, not indicated on the title, was beautifully carried out and in every detail; it even has heating. This Bug will be delivered with the original doors, unassembled. This makes it an atypical vehicle, which can compete with a Smart Brabus in city traffic! A very impressive machine
