  1. Very nice example of an absolute Space Ship of a car. But a diesel... I just don't think I could. "Fastest Diesel Car in the world" when it was built, however.

    1. Tall Dwarfs are actually quite an interesting New Zealand band. Connected with Neutral Milk Hotel, one of my all-time favorites. You owe it to yourself to listen to In the Aeroplane Over the Sea once in your life.

  3. Cool looking car but then my wallet clenched at the mention of hydropneumatic suspension....

    1. similar to a hyperdrive motivator in many respects - i've made the modifications myself - all too easy

    2. Surprisingly the hydropneumatic system is not a bottomless pit for money, as long as you keep rust at bay. Once you understand them, anyone with moderate mechanical skills can do most of the work, and there are good specialists for things like rebuilding the spheres. Every car enthusiast owes it to themselves to ride in or drive a hydropneumatic Citroen at least once in their lives. They blow your mind about what is possible.

    3. Is there a reason why luxury car brands don't use hydro-pneumatic systems? If the reliability isn't terrible I don't see any reason not to use them. Unless airbags are better...
