Not A Manta But Thought You Might Like It!

Reminds me of the Fiat 500 supersaloon from the late 70s/early 80s. Had a two cylinder 1000cc BDA in the back.

Its only real problem was it was nearly as wide as it was long. When it got out of shape it just span till the energy was disapated.

It even span on the top straight at Knockhill in the wet, just got light going over the crest. I was in race control and the log looked strange' Span on straight, continued spinning all the way to first corner gravel trap'

LOL yeah it'll be a handful!

Really can only be driven by taking firmly by the scruff!!

My old autograss class 9 special was 75" wheelbase 70" track, and everybody reckoned that would be unstable.....well it won a lot of races, and was never a handful. Different on tarmac though! Certainly wouldn't fancy it in the wet at knockhill!!
