The Pathfinder route guidance system relied on a system of magnets embedded at intersections along the road to guide the driver along the route. A dash-mounted panel with illuminating arrows indicated the path that needed to be taken by the driver.
TEACHING AID: The Hurricane, since restored to its former glory, spent its years out of the limelight at a trade school where it was used by apprentices practising their welding.
The RD 001 is only 990mm tall and has no doors, using instead a hydraulically-powered canopy that opens up and over the front wheels and two power-elevating seats that rise up and forward (with the driver’s seats taking the steering column along for the ride) to allow relatively easy access.
SPACE AGE: Entry to the Hurricane's cabin appears similar to entering the cockpit of a space explorer.
