The original inspiration behind the CRX?

Postby Archie » Wed Jun 01, 2016 2:17 am

Quoting Jeremy Clarkson; "it's a 2-door 1.6-liter front-wheel driven coupe with hi-tech suspension, 4-cylinder engine, and disc brakes all around. It wasn't especially fast on a straight line, but through the bends it could show a clean pair of heels to almost anything."
Lancia Fulvia, from 1960's :)

I wouldn't say it's horribly ugly but that car looks like a veritable tin can, you could probably flick the car and cause a dent in it. Hell the car looks as if it might crumple if someone sat on the hood. Let's just hope that it's a lot more sturdy in real life than it looks in this picture.

If the Lancia was the inspiration for suspension and driveline, this was for the rear window and hatch, TVR Tasmin.

I completely forgot about those, which I haven't seen one in 10+ yrs. :lol:
The Cav doesn't have the slick little window in the hatch though.
