Meet the Shuttlefish, our office Tuk Tuk. It’s a great conversation starter.
Top speed of 42mph
Weighs in at a solid 337kg
9 kW of power, which equates to roughly 12hp
Enough seats for a driver and three passengers!
198cc of pure power! Not the most powerful vehicle ever, but don’t be fooled by its size – it has spirit!
Its onomatopoeic name echoes the sound of its small but mighty engine!
Scooter-style two-stroke engine
Top speed generally achieved on a clear run down a steep hill
Carefree, fun and cost-friendly
Tuk tuks were born in Bangkok during World War II, when a small engine was fitted to a traditional rickshaw
Variations of tuk tuks can be found across most of Africa and Asia, and even South and Central America!
Shuttlefish Director, Tom, drove across India in a similar tuk tuk, although that one wasn’t in quite as good condition...
Have you ever wondered what’s the best way to get noticed? A bold brand, colourful print ads, daring digital ads, or something completely different? The Shuttlefish Team values the whole lot but we majored on the latter when it came to doing our own marketing! We use a genuine auto rickshaw to drive around our creative base and beyond. Tastefully wrapped in our own unique design, people can’t help but admire the audacity of driving an unheated, underpowered vehicle built for warmer climates in the freezing English countryside. Vive la difference!
