Real-Life ‘Tony Stark’ Builds Motorcycle From A Broken Car To Escape Desert



We all know that Elon Musk is considered to be the real-life Tony Stark from Iron Man.

But Frenchman Emile Leray gives Musk a run for his money.

Why? Leray turned his broken down car into a working motorcycle to escape the desert of northwest Africa—with only the contents of a simple toolbox and hacksaw.

In the movie, Stark had a welder, a hefty supply of equipment, and an assistant to help him construct his Mark I Ironman suit.

It took Leray a total of 12 days to build a working motorcycle from his broken down Citroen 2CV.

What would you have done if you were placed in his predicament?

And who do you think deserves the 'real life Tony Stark' title?
