1972 Audi 100 S/GT
Yes,Me too sir !
You know what’s funny is I thought the original one had
had a spoiler, but that wasn’t until later on I guess.
Here is a Countach from 1974 for you...
The spoiler was added later as an option on the LP400S and became standard on the LP500. It was totally cosmetic and actually did nothing aerodynamically.
The Countach actually suffered from front end lift and instability at high speed.
I experienced this as a passenger in an LP500 in the mid 90’s, in a car owned by an acquaintance at an indicated 300Km/h, (which was probably a lot less as their speedo’s were known to be horribly inaccurate ), and it was scary to see the front start to wander and hear the driver tell me the steering suddenly went “light”. Luckily he backed off real quick…
SOoO many watches SOoO little time...
Anyone excited about the Z?
Have to thank you for the fantastic lesson on the CountachAnyone excited about Mazda going the opposite direction of everyone else (electric)?
2023 is bringing rear wheel drive cars and SUVs with inline 6 engines, longitudinally mounted.
My friend said yesterday that he thinks the Japanese are going to carve a niche and have the finest combustion engines ever, similar to the Swiss holding out and having the niche they now enjoy.
I have always loved Mazda for truly focusing on performance, but even this surprises me. Very, very pleasantly surprises me.
The present day is a mixed bag for Mazda fans. On the one hand, the MX-5 Miata still exists, Mazda remains at least somewhat committed to furnishing cars with manual transmissions, the Mazda3 is available with turbo power, and the company has confirmed that it will be introducing a new Wankel...carbuzz.com
