Team Dynamics took a page from Toyota’s Le Mans playbook and mounted the fuel tank where the grass bag was, which is the same as the Toyota mounted the GT-One’s fuel tank in the luggage compartment, along with a custom 6 speed paddle operated transmission and a steering rack taken from the Morris Minor. The Mean Mower is still actually able to cut grass, with 2 electric motors that spin with a 3mm steel cutting cables at 4000rpm, which allows grass to be cut at a speed of 25 km/h, it was done at IDIADA Proving Ground in Spain, with Piers Ward of Top Gear Magazine behind the wheel.
