@zz Koenig? Yeah, they made quite some spectacular Ferrari tuners back then.

I think you could sum up how crazy-ass Group B was with two pieces of data:
Mildly Upgraded 2.1L Evolution Motor
Yep, that's over 750hp from a mildly upgraded 2.1 liter turbo four-pot.

@Max_Ryde And the movie it "inspired", 24 Hours (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0307156/)
It has a simple plot (good guy in blue cars, very bad guys in red cars), ridiculous scenes (protagonist driving blindfolded and scaring the shit out of the passanger, LeMans prototypes driving on the highway racing against the clock to enter qualifying) and a typical movie-style race finish where the good guys make a comeback and win by inches.

@epicmotorwerks I got it.
Stanced Reliant Robin.
If that's too hard, Stanced British Leyland: Austin Maxi/Metro, Rover SD1, Triumph TR/Spitfire, Austin Healey Sprite "Bug-Eye"...

"It’s never been that way though. Anyone with the slightest familiarity
with the history of car culture knows that these slower, more
aesthetically focused vehicles have been around since the beginning. As
the decades unfolded there were slow-cruising lead sleds, custom show
cars, lowriders, minitrucks – and so forth."
I wonder if in 30-40 years people will look at "stanced" cars the way we look now at lowriders and customs. Maybe it appreciates like fine wine...

@JungleBlues13 Erm...Need For Speed has almost ALWAYS been about the exotics. The only games that DON'T have supercars were NFS Underground 1 and 2.

"It’s not so much about what the initials stand for (seriously, you don’t want to know)"
You realize that's an automatic "must see what the initals stand for" response in all readers, right?

@PaddyMcGrath They're for insurance purposes, so they aren't seats: they are just "theorical" seats. They are seats in the same universe where people have 2,2 children.

@TomKimmell It's probably a weight/simplicity issue. If a "regular" suspension can give the same level of control, why bother with the extra tank/pumps/tubing?

I vote Hunt for one reason only: he decided to live fully while in his racing career. He lived hard, died relatively young (age 45) and let a legacy that's still present today.
Also, R.I.P Maria De Villota.

"Some slightly questionable tactics were employed that we agreed to never
speak of again, but it was eventually returned to its original shape."
In short: they hit it with a hammer.

"Despite having full drag tires front and rear and a tubbed chassis, the owner has managed to get it street registered!"
Well, the rear tires seems to have a bit of thread, they aren't full racing slicks, but still...
