Known History

"The most mobile car ever" was the slogan of this fabulous machine capable of negotiating on any terrain. A French creation, this small versatile vehicle is powered "on the road" by a Peugeot diesel engine of 1.9L developing 92bhp, and by hydrojets in water. Our example, which has known only 3 owners, was sold in 2002 to its first, who resided in Isère following the bankruptcy of the Hobbycar Group. It was he who then took care of the final assembly of his vehicle. It was then sold to a Belgian collector before its current owner acquired it in 2011, attracted by the originality of the car.

With a grey exterior, this Hobbycar features a black interior, and the car is in good condition. Although not driven much in recent years, it has been maintained by the current owner himself. About 5 years ago, during a service of the gearbox and disassembly of the powertrain, the timing belt was replaced. Only around 60 examples were produced, and less than 20 are said to be in working order in France today. This compact little ingenious toy, the victim of an industrial misadventure, is a real rarity in the automotive heritage of France.
