The car got a bright appearance, really like an orange. Of course, often cars were decorated in the style of food, but this one is the most interesting development.

There are six copies in total, developed by Brian Waite Enterprises Ltd from 1972 to 1974, and many components and assemblies were used from Mini cars. They were created as part of Outspan Orange. This car was created on the basis of the Mini Countryman. And later it was significantly improved and strengthened, since there was a high probability of capsizing.

 A 1.0 liter gasoline engine with 30 horsepower has become the heart of a citrus car. The maximum speed reached only 48km / h with a mass of “fruit” of 750 kilograms. The wheelbase of the car was a little longer than two meters.

The cabin can accommodate only 2 people, and they will have to enter through only one door, since the second was not provided. These machines were often used for advertising in some European countries and even in South Africa. Having traveled down the street in such a car you are guaranteed to collect a lot of looks and smiles of passers-by, we are also sure that everyone will want to take a picture next to the “orange”.

The round body is made entirely in the style of an orange. The peel, sepals at a distance of several meters are almost completely similar to real fruit. Only its wheels, glass and some other elements of automobiles (according to the type of headlights) give out its authenticity.
