The new DS models are round blobs, putting them next to Concorde just highlights this further.

Roadkill ep. 4
I love the roadkill episodes. Although I was a bit disappointed with the most recent one. (Ep. 10) It was still great, but I like the ones that focus on a bit more tech-y stuff.

Many things, none of them working.
I posted this picture in the Carbage thread a few years ago:



I take that back. The project is now finished and belongs in here.

That's no project. There was actually a (boat) company that made those to order. Essentially, they're two very well sealed trailer axles at the back, and a really weird FWD configuration involving a V-drive at the front.

There's another company starting up to do the same thing, but they aren't using the van chassis - they're using the medium duty truck chassis (the F-750, IIRC)

Feet, bus pass... :(

Essentially, if you take that, and you remove the guide flaps on the front and the front wheel arch extensions, gives it a smaller, more "streetable" splitter, and a much smaller rear wing, you get roughly what the road going 991 GT3 will look like...
