Colin Chapman, founder of Lotus Cars, and purveyor of all things simple and lightweight. No need for me to extoll his virtues; hundreds of Internet goers have already done so with an in-depth Wikipedia page. If you remember, I touched upon my preference for simplicity in my last entry.
The interesting thing about Mr. Chapman’s statement about adding power, versus subtracting weight, is that while building the Corrado RS in this direction, I never experienced the fruits of my labor
In December of 2011 I was pushing some things around the garage when I noticed a cardboard box was starting to get weak on the bottom. Oh no! This whole tower of crap is going to land right on the TT and scratch the paint! The balancing act continued for what seemed an eternity - about 3 seconds - before the top box fell right onto the hood of the car. I pushed the rest of the stack the other way and used the re-bound inertia to bring myself back to the box on the car - afraid to drag it across
My position on the Cord 810/812 is well-documented. It is also on solid ground.

We've just uploaded a comprehensive collection of photos from the 2012 North American International Auto Show. The mix includes the Audi Q3 Vail design study, the new updated Audi RS 5, S4, A4 allroad, A8 3.0 TFSI, A3 e-tron, R8 GT Spyder and more.
See them all via THIS LINK.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the Audi quattro Concept shown in Paris seems to have been the star of the show. With a longitudinally mounted version of the 5-cylinder turbo FSI engine from the Audi TT in a lightened and shortened A5/S5 derived chassis, the car certainly struck a cord in many who saw it there or lusted over photos online. Even more interesting then is this design model shown tucked away
