A good read?
« on: November 19, 2020, 06:23:40 PM »
A lockdown-2 diversion found by accident.   I did not know some of the bits about NSU or that the 110 was so well received in Europe.  But £2600 when an E-Type cost five or six hundred less, sales were always going to be an uphill struggle. Was this the same pricing problem Mazda repeated with the FD or just as much as they cost to make I wonder.

Anyway...it will fill a few minutes of your day and the site is full of other good stuff too.

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Yup!

A fantastic read actually

"The Lotus Elan of Japan" lol , love it.

It would appear my Frankenstein secret bastard love child of a car is actually a good marriage of parts.

No doubt Id much rather have a 110 Cosmo tho. My concern wouldnt be the money. My concern would be splashing out around 70k and struggle to keep it standard and devalue it. lol
Its just Rotors and GRP
