Police pull over modified sports car and find footlong 'donut handbrake'

Police pull over modified sports car and find footlong 'donut handbrake'

Police were left shocked when they pulled over a sports car to find it had a huge metal handbrake lever.

The strange motor – which was a modified Mazda MX5 – also had a detachable steering wheel.

Officers banned the vehicle from Britain’s roads until it gets a full MOT.

Pictures show the car’s bizarre interior design.

Instead of a gear stick, the vehicle has a thick metal pole, and even stranger is the modified handbrake next to it.

Instead of a normal lever, the car is fitted with a giant foot-long metal bar.

Police images show that the steering wheel was completely detachable.

PC Glen McArthur stopped the car in Horsham, Sussex, in the early hours of Sunday morning.

He said: ‘This car was seen drifting and driving antisocially in the Horsham area and when stopped had a modified handbrake.

‘Vehicle prohibited and will undergo a full MOT.

‘Before you ask, the steering wheel is removable.’

He later added: ‘I’m not the biggest of people, but I still don’t know how I got in those seats.’
