Mocked-up on his computer and precisely executed by GSK Bodyworks, round the corner from his local Toyota Centre in Luton, it has generated nods and smiles from passers-by. Ex-RAF test-pilot Sheppard says the iQ's originality, engineering and detail design warms the cockles of his perfectionist, nit-picking heart.
"Clean, green and mean. A minimal planet/wallet-impact coefficient", he says with a straight face. "Or to put it another way, 99g/km CO2, no road tax and 67.57mpg on my last tank-full isn't bad for openers! I love it!"
