Automatron Hot Rod

The well-known British custom car builder, Paul Bacon, has completed his most impressive steampunk hot rod ever. Named Automatron, it was not only most labor-intensive but was also his most pricey creation to-date. Taking motivation from horse-drawn carriages, Paul started work on this custom car in 2015 and hand-built most of the parts exclusively for it.

The Automatron Steampunk Hot Rod carries a 3.5L supercharged V8 engine that is powerful enough to attain a top speed of 110mph. To complete this one of a kind project, he used 1924 Singer Sport base, switchgear from a Lancaster Bomber, front wheels from an Austin 7, and navigation binnacle from a ship.
