Very interesting but failed project. It was started by as far as I know a RWTH Aachen university professor, who saw a need for such vehicles. It was developed to use i3 hardware, was too expensive, needed a redesign, giving the company severe growth issues. Due to this DHL too it over, as they were the main customer Read more

With the K1600 shaft coming out of the side of the block, are you planning to put it in sideways? Or do you have some idea to turn the shaft around

The speed was the main reason. These guys would put the pedal to the metal when leaving the printers, and would keep it pinned at 100mph all the way, maybe only stopping for fuel on some of the longer routes. I remember reading about an 8h trip from Amsterdam to Marseille being normal (which is over 1200km). And all Read more

The CX (and DS) has a long history of being converted to 6-wheelers. The self levelling suspension makes them ideal for high speed, relatively dense deliveries. In the 70s/80s enclosed ‘Loadrunner’ versions were for instance used to distribute newspapers across Europe overnight

I think this is Oss, Noord Brabant, the place where I went to highschool. Not sure which road exactly, but I’m pretty sure my dad (who also went to highschool there, and worked there for a couple of years) will be easily able to tell where it is.

I’ve seen this car in the Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum in Munich (great museum with all kinds of vehicles, not just cars), it’s very cool in person! You can clearly tell that no cost or effort was spared in making this.

I’ve been having a similar issue on my old laptop (hardly use it any more, so not a big issue). In my case it’s likely related to a corrupted part of the updater, but every solution I found on google and tried didn’t work yet. Read more
