Giving the Rocket an, er, rocket.

I’ve always been the type of person who enjoys cars that are one person’s design. And as something of an automotive historian I always felt bad that I never got the chance to meet some of the great ground-up designers like WO Bentley, Fred Duesenberg and Enzo Ferrari. But I have been fortunate enough to meet Gordon Murray. When a true automotive icon is alive in my lifetime, it’s great to get a chance to meet them and drive the vehicles they designed.

One of my favourite Gordon Murray creations, rivalling even the McLaren F1 which I love, was the Rocket.
