We don’t know if the Daleks were to blame, but Doctor Who’s car had a flat tyre when it arrived for a new exhibition at the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu.
The fabulously futuristic Whomobile was Jon Pertwee’s transport in two episodes of Doctor Who in the early 1970s. It was commissioned by Pertwee and built by custom car builder Peter Farries. It’s starring in an exhibition to mark 60 years of Doctor Who at the museum.
Underneath, the Whomobile is a three-wheeler powered by a Hillman Imp engine. Vintage Tyres replaced the less-than-futuristic 155/80R12 tyre enabling the car to travel through time and space all the way from the Vintage Tyres’ workshop to the front entrance of the museum.
OK, that’s only about 100 metres as the Tardis flies, but that’s not really the point, is it?
