It takes a special kind of madness to shoehorn a 27-litre V12 World War II powerplant into a road car. Clive Woolley and son Bruce, of Randburg, spent four years between 2009 and 2013 creating Lucy, a spectacular marriage between a 1933 Rolls-Royce and a V12 Liberty tank engine. Watch the flame-belching Lucy take to the road in this video…

But the madness doesn’t end there. As we speak, a similar vehicle — the Rothay Special — is under construction in Cape Town.
