Not everything! I've always wanted a Humber Super Snipe. There not too expensive but I couldn't afford to run one as a daily.

 

Would love to see Jag bring back some of these classic lines. But saying that a Jag reproduction might be as unreliable as the original...

I liked those too, almost purchased one but parts are scarce these days. Decent cars 4 inch thick metal! Ended up with a Rover P5 instead .

Styling isn't there with the modern day versions though. Too tame.

Ummmm .......... OK. I dont know many people who would call Aventadors and Diablos tame, what do you think is as extreme in its styling as a Countach then?

Everything is a modern day something. :teeth:


Not really, if you look at most of the cars mentioned here theres isnt any modern equivalent - Pulsar GTiR, RX7, 200SX, Mini, Copen, AC Cobra, R5 GTT.

When Lamborghini still make an overly large mid engined V12 with scissors doors, mad styling and interior, little to no focus on laptimes for more money than normal people can afford Id argue theres no need to bring back the original.

McLaren F1. Again, a cheeky breeki, normally aspirated Merc V12 delivering a no compromise, all expenses paid, peak of normally aspirated know how (798bhp in the peak Pagani). Latest lightweight goodies. Central driving position. Yet somehow gentle, docile, civilised. A saville row suit that morphs into a 90s shell suit when you disprobe the powerplant.

 

And a Facom toolkit.

 

Jaguar XJ220.

Ford GT90.

Honda CRX.

Ford Escort RS Turbo.

Renault 5 Turbo.

 

One car Lancia recently brought back was amazing. The Stratos. It was just everything I'd want a new stratos to have been. 

 

Realistically, I'd say the CRX would do best.

Chatted recently to a bloke with a Listerbell Stratos. The car is perfection. So clean, better than the original... And quick even by modern standards

Hmmn. Not sure about that CRZ. Doesn't really have any of the ingredients that made the CRX what it was. 

 

 

The shape, size and name?

You are right, yes.

 

But, the original CRX had so much more performance. A kurb weight of 872KG and 158bhp. 

 

I briefly had one when I was younger, with just a K&N 57i. The induction noise was fantastic. 

 

CRZ is 50bhp down and 430kg heavier.

 

I know cars now have to be bigger, heavier and softer on the whole, due to safety.

 

Sigh
