Ooooh, a Montego! Exciting times.
That was it's downfall of course. It had to come at too high a price for enough people to buy one. Cost VAG more than €1bn.
At one time quite a number of Ford cars had that key in the slot idea as well. Then it just went away.
Sales in a few years? Just like every other one. Sells for a couple of years then drops off a cliff so another new one is needed. Rinse and repeat.
Time to calm down a bit. If you’re in the income bracket that would get you a Ferrari you’re not going to get one of these instead. You might add one to your fleet as well, but they’re not really rivals. It doesn’t matter how fast the Corvette goes for how little money, it’s still not a Ferrari.
I doubt it. Like its predecessors it’ll sell for a couple of years and then fade away so they’ll need a C9 and so on.
What buttons? It’s all touch screens.
Or even Bilar...
I’ve been in Skansen several times and have yet to encounter it. Squirrels do show up though and I’ve seen them climbing up a person’s leg to be fed.
Just because a Corvette will (or may) outrun a Ferrari doesn’t make them rivals. Also, it’s not necessarily either/or. If you’re in the Ferrari pay bracket, you’re going to buy multiple other cars which may well include a Corvette or two (yes, two. You’re not going to have just the one house!).
Volvo Cars and AB Volvo share the logo on a 50:50 basis, I don’t think it’s licensed as such.
Well, technically, it had outer panels of Duroplast which was like the economy version of fibreglass in that cotton waste made up the fibre and a kind of phenol formed the resin. Somewhat surprisingly a Trabi was once crash tested and was about as crashworthy as a steel bodied car of the time, although that time was a…
They’re very simple until you start mixing and matching four gearsets to give eight, nine or more ratios. That’s witchcraft.
People of 64 are elderly now?
Not rustproof so much though.
They haven’t, so far as I know, but in a couple of years they will. Same with the S Max and Galaxy.
Today’s trivia: VAG lost more than €1bn on the A2. Also, you would expect the aluminium body to mean that they last a long time. It turns out to be their undoing as body repairs are prohibitively expensive and so A2s are often scrapped after quite minor body damage.
I wouldn’t worry too much about ZF. They have rather more strings to their corporate bow than gearboxes and parts related thereto.
It’s a hangover from the abortive Wankel engined CX and was chosen to make the best use of the rotary’s poor low end torque (the NSU Ro80 had the same unit). Citroen gave up on the Wankel but kept the C Matic for a few years.
What, like these ones?
