Top Gear review: Brit-built 361kg joy machine
Top Gear, a hallmark in automotive journalism, recently turned their discerning eye to our very own Pembleton T24.
The Pembleton T24 is not just a car; it's a bridge between vintage charm and modern craftsmanship. Crafted in the tranquil village of Bayton, Worcestershire, this unique vehicle boasts an air-cooled v-twin bike engine from Moto Guzzi, available in 744cc and 853cc configurations. Despite its svelte 361kg weight, the T24 promises a vibrant driving experience, courtesy of its Citroen 2CV-derived transaxle gearbox and unique pullrod suspension. Beyond its classic appeal, the T24 is a beacon of reliability and practicality, featuring a generous 200-litre boot and a luxurious leather bench for two.
With a starting price of £32,995 + VAT for the 744cc model and nearing £40,000 + VAT for the 853cc version, the T24 epitomises the myriad benefits of lightweight engineering in both zest and fuel efficiency. Experience a renewed vision of vintage motoring with the Pembleton T24.
"The T24 might be an extreme example with a bonkers driving experience, but everything about it shows why we should be pushing for lighter and lighter cars."
