We featured this beast of a tricycle about a month ago and now it’s back for some more publicity. The only difference between then and now is that Tim Cotterill’s Rocket II Tricycle just may have found a new fan in no less than Jay Leno himself.
Cotterill’s one-of-a-kind work of art made its way to Jay Leno’s Garage and was given a thorough run-down by the celebrity car enthusiast. Needless to say, Jay Leno - just like the rest of us - came away impressed with Cotterill’s gargantuan creation, especially the supercharged dual-plug unit Hemi V8 that runs off of pump gas at a gas-guzzling rate of 3 mpg. Not exactly the type of vehicle environmentalists will be going gaga over.
In any case, we were a little bummed out when Jay Leno opted against taking the Rocket II out for a ride - who knows what he would have done with it - but Cotterill certainly made up for it by reminding us once more just how insane his creation is.
