    We have a new toy at work just been looking around it and thought this would make a great "guess what it is" so here goes.

    First couple of clues, I will make them a bit tough to start with, and then see how we get on.

    It has a six speed semi-auto gear box
    It is a two stroke

    Next clues in a few mins

    Diesel or petrol? Because two stroke diesels are great engines.

    Not even close yet guys, think quite a bit bigger than a lawn mower or a caterham.

    Next clues

    It has 6 cylinders but 12 pistons.

    It does a top speed of about 35mph

    Someone is getting very close, not sure how long to drag it out, I guess the next couple of clues then I will break the suspense (if there is any!!!)

    It stopped production in the early eighties but is still in service.
    It has 250(ish) BHP
    It can carry 10 passengers

    Well done Saitrix got it spot on but Firestar was pretty much the first with ex-military small tank.

    We have bought three Fv432 Armoured Personnel Carriers, and once repainted and tweaked a bit will be rumbling around the off road course full of punters on our corporate entertainment days.

    I have asked if I could be trained to drive them but the gods above decreed NO!!
