It’s not just beautiful cars that we restore here at the Carrosserie, we also love a challenge! When we were approached by a client in Mickleton who needed brightening up after feeling low because of his almost, but not quite, confinement to a mobility scooter, we jumped at the opportunity to help!
Our client had a vision of a ‘Steam Punk’ inspired scooter that proved to be a very exciting and imaginative project to work on. Steam Punk is a subgenre of science fiction that draws influence from 19th century industrial steam-powered machinery with a cyberpunk twist.
To achieve the Steam Punk look we added lots of quirky accessories to the mobility scooter including a chimney that blows smoke, plenty of the traditional copper pipping and a bespoke bubble cannon. We even took it one step further and designed a matching walking cane with a vintage pressure gauge, because, why not!
