Would-be Iraqi builder puts together car inspired by Chaplin

A young would-be Iraqi builder parades around the city of Samarra, 100 kilometres north of Baghdad, to show off his car inspired by the legendary silent actor Charlie Chaplin, drawing curious crowds. Abderrahman scraped together the fiery red vehicle, modelled after the Caterham 7, a super-lightweight sports car, despite “a lack of tools and support.” He says he was inspired by an extract of the Chaplin film ‘A Day’s Pleasure’ on YouTube, in which Chaplin appears to be driving a similar vehicle.
