26 HP on a good day, down hill, with a tail wind.

I had the 'opportunity' to ride in one, it's like an enclosed riding lawn mower.

As much as I like the idea of the plucky little two wheel drive car making it across a tremendous distance....They would have saved themselves a lot of pushing time if they had just had a real expedition truck/SUV. There is a pretty funny moment though at 2:36 which show the advantages of a very light vehicle I did the same thing with my uncles Peugeot some years ago
