Ugly, that's what it is - AMC/Rambler Marlin 

 

I'm normally pretty accepting of all motoring evolution and see why people love the odd ball but this car is just plain ugly.

 

Frankinstein for sure, I can see P76 - Impala in the front, half a Riviera - Valiant in the back and if you squint your eyes some Capri in the rear quarters.

Toorak taxi Spotted in....well Toorak...One ugly vehicle alright...

 

Anecdotally I do think the Bentley is the go to marque in Toorak for those with, well, shall we say a larger bank balance than most other perhaps?  Certainly see plenty more than the RR..etc, etc.

In the words of Coco Chanel, "there's no such thing as good taste or bad taste, there's only taste". You either have it or you don't, and that Bentley is tasteless

Had a quick blatting in this beast today.996 GT3 Gen I. This car is in incredible nearly as new condition. Never been a track car either. One of the best in Aus I reckon.. Heaps of fun. The incredible "Mezger" engine in this is the star..

Both about to be posted on carsales and bikesales. The cat and the bird. Jaguar XF 3.0 V6 Supercharged and Suzuki Hayabusa 1340cc. The Busa has been a hoot, this tuned variant is making around 205 hp and has an insane amount of grunt even at 1/2 revs.

 

Time to consolidate the garage...

Dry weight of around 210 kgs. The new BMW S1000RR is offering 207 hp  (from 1000cc normally aspirated) and a kerb weight in M spec of 194 kgs (stock is 197 kgs)

Slightly off topic; I was curious about the new carbon ceramic brakes (CCB) offered on some of the new high performance cars. I can see the benefits for track use if you are an exceptional skilled driver who can late brake with the best of them. On the road, apparently no difference in stopping distance (just less fade with repeated stops). Soooo, I priced the cost of a pads and rotor service (replacement) and got back a quote of $21,000 plus labour for front only (Audi). WTF!

I could (tongue in cheek) see an ad for a CCB equipped M3 in the future reading something like "needs new pads and rotors for a roadworthy certificate, giveaway car please come and collect on a car trailer. Parked out front, keys in the car, first to come past can have it".

Random supercar of interest.....the new 'retro-futuristic' De Tomaso P72. Revived brand now associated with Apollo and celebrating the marque's 60th anniversary. I used to have a De Tomaso Mangusta Matchbox toy when I was a kid (showing my age!), I loved it. Of course, the Pantera was a great looking car as well.....

 

All I can say is about this latest incarnation......it's drop dead gorgeous!

rear of the De Tomaso P72 reminds me of the Alfa 33 Stradale from 1968, now this is a classic!
