Although best known for his Rugby skills, 22-year-old George Martin is also renowned for his 6ft 6in height and rugby player build that manages to squeeze into a very small red Volkswagen Up! George and his family have owned the Up since 2012 and it was his very first car which has seen him through the beginning of his career, up to the present day. 

Amongst his friends, George is jokingly called Mr. Incredible, due to him commonly squeezing his big build into the compact car, like the Mr Incredible character in the well-loved movie “The Incredibles”.

When George found out he was going to be driving a Touareg, he stated “I love the Volkswagen brand and I am over the moon to be sticking with it after owning my Up! since I first started driving.”

When asked what would become of his little red Up that he’s owned for so long, he stated that he’d love to keep the Up and will give it to his girlfriend.
