Hi All,

I thought this was the worlds quickest Rolls Royce, as far as i know John Dodd still has or had the fastest Rolls Royce.

John Dodd was reputedly reported/noted for doing over 200MPH on the german autobahns on a number of occasions, although he wasn't breaking the law it was regarded as highly anti-social by the german authorities.

Cheers.

Russ.

Didn't John Dodd's Beast (in its first guise, I think) just have a R/R grille and Meteor engine? Body was custom/part Mk1 Capri? :beuj:

Originally it had a grille from a Rolls-Royce, but after complaints from R-R themselves he had to change it.

From the link I posted earlier.

Hi Matt,

To the best of my knowledge it is still on it's original Rolls Royce chassis, hence why it is still registered as a Rolls Royce today (the rules were a bit different way back then). It is correctly registered as a 27,000cc correct colour etc and still MOTed Taxed and insured even now.

Cheers.

Ah, I knew of the court case, didn't realise the chassis was R/R! Thanks for clearing that up! :tup:
