The rest is here:Though there was much gnashing of teeth over the Land Rover Defender last week, the British stalwart marched triumphant into the Jalopnik Fantasy Garage, with a convincing 82.8%. We now have 43 slots down and a mere seven left to fill. Things are beginning to get tight, so let's move on to something better able to fit in uncomfortable spaces. With a wind-sculpted shape and dominating track record, purity of concept and unwavering devotion to engineering, this week's long-awaited entry proves that might does not always make right. Indeed, sometimes the victor is he who carries the lightest burden.
The Lotus Eleven is a special kind of racing automobile, just as Lotus and its founding father are unique icons. Anthony Colin Bruce Chapman was an early visionary in the racing world; he developed a series of design philosophies particularly adaptable to the sport. Chapman is famous for his notion of "adding lightness" as a primary means of improving performance. But he also developed a means by which each of a vehicle's parts could serve two or more functions--with no more mass than absolutely necessary to do the job. Lotus cars were designed not with just with passion, but with hard, applied science.
Other than the fun of knowing there is a future vehicle underneath the camo or old body shell, there really is no point.Looks like an Aztec, I'm not buying one!!! anic:
I don't understand this fascination of publishing spy photos of cars that are completely camouflaged or of test mules that have some old body shell on them (but it's under there, really!), they show absolutely nothing.
Waste of time :shrug:
