Peel P50 acquired by Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum

But is it a real one?

peel4Check out the “official” Ripley’s video below.
They talk about how rare it is and how it gets great gas milage but that “this one is electric”.

I am pretty sure this car is a replica that was built for a TV show last year
(no, not the blue one that was on Top Gear)

another film crew “needed” one that could be driven indoors and the original 2-stroke motor threw out too much smoke, making it electric drive solved that problem. I am waiting for confirmation from the person that provided the car before posting my speculations but I am pretty sure this is the car they used.

Update: the car was purpose-built for Ripleys Museum.

    Ripley’s in San Antonio Texas had a Mini that was covered in Canadian pennies. But that was over 15 years ago.
