Wow, sounds amazing!  I notice that the front looks a little 'oval' shaped.  Is this a slightly different shell?

Oh, and will you be selling these or building and then selling? 

Thanks,

Mike

A c5 shell was initially used to make the mould , electricDave then made the new fibreglass shell slightly wider and longer as well as lowering the seat height. He could build another but I don't think there are any immediate plans to do so.

It was very well received at Brooklands, with two of the staff there being c5 owners they very excited to be amongst the first to see the c5000 in action. We had quite an audience so there must be a fair few piccies of it out there by now  8)

Another successful test at Brooklands today, very pleased with the results.

Love the tailor made trailer electricDave built for it;

Now that the c-5000 has made its debut I'll publish some more piccies. First is the movie footage of one of the test runs, click on the image to play;



The rest are normal piccies;










A truly awesome machine that goes as good as it looks - an amazing achievement by electricdave.

Can't wait until he runs it on full power !

Some more piccies of the c-5000 , taken by the lovely Angela during one of the test run sessions at Brooklands;





...and this is just an amazing photo, in the sense that to my mind it truly captures the  "spirit of Brooklands";
