This is it then.

By the way, the 4.4-litre supercharged V8 was an Alpina-BMW unit, unlike the other two.

Only the engine compartment went through minor changes the exterior keeps its dramatic Strada look.
BTW the first four pictures are of the final (production) model that got the Ghepardo name.

i think it's the matter of 5300 being so small... all the cars of that age are much smaller and you won't convince me the proportions of that time were much more attractive which i know you'd like to do

as a matter of fact i didn't... but i assume it's the same thing as we debated with greenhouses of lancia fulvia vs mercedes CLS.

de gustibas est not disputandum BUT i'm sure todays design not without a reason is more effective, safer and more attractive

effective: power needed for a given mass......
safer: depends on the driver
attractive:subjective....
