Those seventies bigger Opels were lovely things.

 

The front overhang on that Renault 20 is obscene.

The overhang is due to the engine being ahead of the gearbox.

Interesting that it features a Zodiac estate by Abbotts of Farnham considering they were private conversions I believe.

The estates were included in Ford's brochures, although they do mention that it's an Abbotts conversion.

Wasn't the 14 GTL introduced in 1979, a year after this was released?

That’s interesting this doesn’t have a date but the back page mentions the 18 was due to be launched in the uk which might help date it.

It doesn’t mention their F1 team which by 1979 was beginning to get some results.

Does anyone know what this is? I found it in a copy of Auto Motor und Sport from 1969:

From Carweek, Car magazine's relatively short-lived offshoot to the weekly titles:

Alfa Romeo Arna C655 DKL, Carweek magazine 23/11/94 by Spottedlaurel, on Flickr

The Arna made it to 1997.

'Fantastic'. None of them lasted beyond 2010 (the cars that is, not the fleet managers, although a few too many jollies like this might also have seen some of them off prematurely).
