^ Yeah, that smile went into a wide grin when he rolled by. :mrgreen:

Addendum from today: Autobianchi A112 Abarth. - Btw, the base model had 48hp, the Abarth version has 70hp. Now that's some upgrade! LOL

Interesting. That's a Swiss-made "Ecomobile" by a company called Peravez: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecomobile

Another Swiss company (or rather, person...) tried to pair the principle with a turbocharged Hayabusa engine about 15 years ago, but nothing much came out of that but prototypes and numbers that sounded too good to be true: https://www.topspeed.com/motorcycles/motorcycle-news/acabion-gtbo-the-rocket-motorcycle-ar30141.html

An Ape working very hard... note the leap on downshift 😂



Saw it again 80 minutes later... still churning away at the same incline, towards Matterhorn from the south. [if the forum doesn't play x265 for you in-browser then just download :dunno:]

Who the fuck imports a Sentra?

The same kind of people that imports a USDM Focus or whatnot. I had to pull up an 1980's Escort for engine parts because that's what Ford decided to put in a 2000's car for the US market.

:LOL: these things should really have a diesel like in normal microcars these days. They won't go faster, but they'll be able to maintain the 45 even uphill.

Seen today: I'm always a bit of a loss with current cars. What was that? - Had a very angry 4-pot Golf GTI sound to it (read: annoying high drumming and fake misfire crackles)
