Ford is celebrating 100 years in Britain by delving into its archive of photographs.

This week, racing legend Graham Hill takes to the wheel of a replica Quadricycle – Henry Ford's first vehicle.

The original was built in 1896 and had a top speed of just 20mph. No bad thing, perhaps, considering it also didn't have any brakes.

Sadly, there are no details on which track Hill is driving the Quadricycle on, or what his lap time was.
