that first TT suddenly reminded me of another monstrocity

you have a car with a drag coeficient of 0.26, that looks like this
so you turn it into this




by the looks of the new doorhandle the driver is pretty short, wich makes me wonder how he can see over that new bonnet

So, does this Audi have a v12 or something ridiculous or what?

Tell you what it needs, is a 1.2l ecomatic diesel with ev mode.

I was 15 years old back then, I sure bought into it. Sort of a poor man's Lotus Esprit, I still like them both.

The Audi is pretty silly, sure makes a cool custom car show entry though.

What was that comment, a dog carrier built-in..........brilliant!

Yeah, I still compare the TR7 to current cars because I think it did influence car design. There is a practical "logic" to doing this in the sense that it increases the volume of the trunk (boot for UKers), albiet at the cost of decreased rear visibility.
