Peugeot 205 T16 📍Mulhouse, 2019 You realize that the T16 is a cool car when it takes your attention out of the Bugatti Veyron sitting next to it. Finnish 🇫🇮 drivers knew how to throw this one in to the corners, as #juhakankkunen & #timosalonen both won the WC with an identical 205.
Peugeot 206 CC Roland Garros & Peugeot 306 Cabrio 📍Krakow, 2019 Which one would you prefer? Loving the Roland Garros ’trim’ on the 206, but have to admit that Pininfarina did a good job with the 306 - ’porsche-wheels’ gives it a nice touch too. Swipe left!
Citroën DS5 THP200 & Citroën DS3 Racing 📍Colmar (& Laax), 2019 Only spot from the beautiful city of Colmar was this THP200 - I found it as a quite interesting car due to the fact that it was only available with manual 6-speed transmission. At least in Finland the case was simultaneously that the other engine options came only with the automatic transmission. Swipe left to see the rare DS3 Racing that was found from a Citroën-heaven with other cars such as the SM!
Honda S2000 📍Stuttgart, 2019 In all modesty, one of the greatest Japanese sports cars ever built. Wouldn’t mind revving this beast uphigh - if I could find a straight road long enough for that VTEC to kick in. 🤷🏽♀️
2019 Bajaj Qute (RE60) _____ The Qute is not a car. At least that's what Bajaj keeps insisting. Instead they prefer to call it a 'quadricycle', much like what the very first cars/horseless carriages🎩 were called. Towards the end of my last post, I mentioned that soon autorickshaws will be a thing of the past; this is what Bajaj wants to replace them with. In 2010, Bajaj announced a partnership with Nissan-Renault to develop an ultra-low-cost (ULC) vehicle that cost just $2,500 (basically a ₹1 Lakh car, similar to the Tata Nano). It was meant to be a full-fledged car, manufactured and sourced by Bajaj, but marketed by Nissan-Renault. The duo backed out, probably after the Nano flopped so unexpectedly, and left Bajaj to develop the vehicle on their own. Eventually Nissan and Renault came out with their own ULCs but that's a story for another day. Back in 2012, Bajaj showcased this...thing, and it was touted to be their first 4-wheeled vehicle. In those days, the Tata Nano was the world's cheapest new car on sale, but was obviously built to a price; it still managed to pack in many features seen on normal cars, however. But here, Bajaj claimed they weren't making a competitor to the Nano, but something even more basic, like 'a 3-wheeler with one extra wheel for stability' (their words, not mine). Now THAT'S innovation, what a time to be alive, the future is now! 💫 It's like Bajaj is using some weird reverse psychology here: Tata tried hard to convince people the Nano was a proper car, but people considered it to be an autorickshaw with an extra wheel. Now if Bajaj insists it's not a car, will people be convinced it is one? 🤔 hmmmm. It was originally called the RE60 (RE=Rear-Engined, 60= CO2 output of just 60g/km, which is extremely low), and came with a 217cc 1-cylinder engine from the Bajaj Pulsar bike, making roughly 13HP and run either on LPG or CNG. Turkey was the first export market to get the quadricycle, in 2016, and many other countries got
Я думаю, многим из Питера, уже известна заброшенная Mazda RX7 FB без двигателя, в районе Старой Деревни. Что ж, есть еще вот такая Ēfini RX7 FD, и стоит она, как минимум уже год, если верить Google Street View. Машина культовая, такой владел Кёйске Такахаши из аниме Initial D, и с одной стороны, просто не укладывается в голове, что она может вот так стоять без движения, а с другой стороны, двигатель Ванкеля очень сложный, и его ремонт обойдётся слишком дорого. Ну и пара слов об Ēfini: по сути, это одна из марок от Mazda, и Efini предполагалась быть люксовой версией Мазды, а также, через нее продавали Ситроены в Японию, но марка продержалась недолго. I think, most people know the abandoned Mazda RX7 FB from the northside of Saint-Petersburg, so there’s another abandoned RX7 FD by Ēfini, and it stands here at least since the last year, according to the Google Street View. This car is a legend itself, almost the same one had Keisuke Takahashi from Initial D anime, and it’s really strange to see such car abandoned. On the other hand, there’s no surprise of that, because of the Wankel engine, that’s hard to repair. And couple of words about Ēfini: basically, that’s a luxury brand for Mazda, and by this brand, few Citroën models were sold to Japan, but it didn’t last long, and in the end of 90s, ēfini was discontinued. #mazda#mazdarx7#アンフィニ#rx7#rx7fd#initiald#youngtimer#coupé#abandonedcars#jdm#jdmnation#import#junkyard#automotive#carphotography#cars#carsofinstagram

A ‘69 Road Runner 440 convertible. Only made ‘68-70 with the ‘68 deffo having the cooler rear. Took this photo in a sleepy town near the German / Swiss border surrounded by forest covered mountains and I just wonder why the fuck people want to go and stuff themselves onto a generic beach at the end of a hideous flight when you could be places like this instead 🤷🏻♀️ (have also stuffed myself onto a generic beach at the end of a hideous flight) • • • • • #carphotography#oldschoolcars#parkedcar#soloparking#oldcar#carspotting#instacar#driverastefully#retrocar#classiccarchasers#carvintage#drivetribe#modernclassic#drivevintage#carsofinsta#carssofinstagram#classiccarculture#classiccarshow#americancar#americana#carlife#chasingcarsandconcrete#car#60scar#vintagecar#roadrunner#plymouthroadrunner#musclecar#muscle_cars_old#muscle_cars_old
Volkswagen Golf GTI mkI & Audi RS3 📍Chatenois, 2019 Spotting Golf’s: While driving the winding roads of the Alsace, France, we popped up into a small car store that had approximately 10 cars in their collection. The collection casually included this minty Golf GTI & then a bit newer reckoning of the same concept - Audi RS3. Swipe left!
Volkswagen Golf CL, Syncro 📍Chur, 2019 Spotting Golf’s: As the people at thr Alps prefer their cars with all-wheel drive, it is not a surprise that even the old ’mk2’ Golf is the Syncro version - which by the way is nowadays quite wanted piece of machinery.
Volkswagen Golf V5 📍Zürich, 2019 Spotting Golf’s: VAG is big enough company to be able to produce quite weird practical solutions while still concentrating mainly on pure boredom. Most famous example at the VW-company might be the W8 used in the Passat, but you could also have your Golf/Bora with V5 -engine if you were brave enough to give it a try.
