- Which Lamborghini model is the odd one out?
The Islero is the correct answer here as it was the only Lamborghini listed that was not styled by the master Italian designer Marcello Gandini, the Islero being the work of Touring of Milan. You will be able to admire examples of all of the Lamborghinis listed inside the Earls Court Motor Show attraction at the forthcoming 2016 Goodwood Revival.
- Which one of the following road car manufacturers did not have its own Grand Prix team?
Although Ford was actively involved with a large number of Grand Prix teams with its victorious DFV Cosworth engine (and funding for the failed Jaguar F1 team), the international marque never ran a Ford-branded team of its own.
- Which car did NOT have a vinyl-covered roof and standard in the 1970s?
Ford Escort 1300E Mark I
Renault 5 GTL Automatic
Humber Spectre Mark II
A vinyl roof was available as an option for the VW K70, but this NSU-developed model was never offered with this popular 1970s ‘keeping up with the Jones’ feature as standard, unlike the other cars mentioned.
- The engine capacity of a 1973 Citroen Ami Super was?
The ‘performance’ Ami Super was powered by the 1,015cc air-cooled engine, taken from the entry-level Citroen GS model. The other engine sizes were offered in other air-cooled Citroen models, including the 2CV, Visa, Axel and afore-mentioned GS.
- Which of these cars doesn’t fit in with the others?
The Japanese domestic market-only Nissan Dayz is the oddball here, as the other four cars all share the same bodywork of the Daihatsu COO, briefly sold in the UK as the Daihatsu Materia. An amusing (i.e. bad) Chinese copy of the Daihatsu is worth taking a look at too; the Great Wall Cool Bear!
- Aston Martin’s claimed official maximum power output of the new DB11 Coupe is…?
Aston Martin officially rates the new DB11 at 600 bhp, although a handful of independent road test claim a figure of 608 bhp!
- Which is the cuckoo in the nest here?
The Bristol 411 is the stranger here, as its powerful V8 is sourced from a Canadian-built Chrysler engine, whereas the other four cars all use derivatives of the popular ex-Buick Rover V8 motor.
