Ultimatecarpage.com update (10-23-06)

Dear Ultimatecarpage.com visitor,

A few months after unveiling the very well received TT Coupe, Audi has now released the first information on the TT Roadster. Fortunately Audi did not equip the two-seater convertible with a fold-away tin-top, which would only have added weight and removed trunk space. With 200 and 250 bhp engines available, the TT Roadster should be a hoot to drive. Even more powerful are the two manufacturer customized vehicles in this weeks update. First up is the Nissan 350Z GT-S, which using aftermarket parts packs quite a punch. America's customizers annually gather in Las Vegas for the SEMA show and General Motors will be present in force this year. One of the highlights on the stand will be the Corvette Z06 engined Silverado 427.
Last week we took a closer look at two of France's lesser known manufacturer and today we continue our celebration of the peak of France's automotive industry with a look at rare examples of three better known manufacturers. Built in just thirteen days, Bugatti's Type 54 Grand Prix was one of the most powerful racing cars of the era. This combined with the very twisty chassis and poor tires earned it the nickname 'Widow Maker'. Delahaye's last sports racer of the 1930s was the V12 engined type 145 and after the War two of these received stunning Chapron coachwork as part of road-going conversion. We managed to shoot both together on the Pebble lawn earlier this year. Also gracing the meticulously prepared grass was the unique Talbot Lago T26 GS Dugarreau Barchetta, which was one hour away from winning the 1952 24 Hours of Le Mans.
It is quite remarkable that last century's finest designer, Giorgietto Giugiaro, has only penned a Ferrari design two or three times. Of course Ferrari's long standing relationship with Pininfarina left him little room. Employed by Bertone and only 21 years old he had his first go, resulting in the very elegant 250 GT SWB Coupe Speciale.

I have got a question on the Panda. Is the Panda only available with those rims? Because I think I have seen a pic similar to the first one only with a different colors and rims on a billboard in the center of Eindhoven.
