Cars With 6 Wheels.

Here is a collection of cars with 6 wheels or more from around the world.

C6W - The Six Wheel Sports Car: Ferruccio Covini conceptualized the original idea in '74, but the project was abandoned in favor of the Soleado project. The C6W is a two-seater with four wheels in the front, weighs just 1,150kg, has an Audi 4.2 litre V8 motor and is capable of reach speeds in excess of 300km/h. The prototype was introduced in 2004 at the Geneva Motor Show and now the vehicle is set for commercial production.

It has three 2.5 ton Rockwell axles with Detroit Lockers in each axle. Its only weakness is turning radius. This will be fixed with upcoming 6 wheel steering."

Cars With 6 Wheels (21) 13The Tyrrell P34 (Project 34): Derek Gardner designed the six-wheel F1 car (commonly known as Project 34). "The car used specially manufactured 10-inch diameter wheels and tyres at the front with two ordinary sized wheels at the back." Just coming to think of it, if Derek Gardner had succeeded in his 6-wheel F1 car project, how different the F1 could have looked today!

Cars With 6 Wheels (21) 12March 2-4-0: This car followed on from a previous effort by Tyrrell P34 to introduce a six-wheeled car to F1 racing. The March Engineering Company of Bicester, UK, built it. But, the engineering concept behind the 2-4-0 was quite different.

"The four wheels at the back were driven by two axles connected by a universal joint, making the Pat Clancy Special a four-wheel drive car."
