Oxford University‘s Department for Engineering Science is the owner of a very special car. Not only have they been given a Bowler Wildcat (successor to the Bowler Tomcat), they have been given one that has been modified by BAE Systems engineers to be capable of demonstrating aspects of our driving future.
