NSU had this triple in development to address the performance criticism of the Ro80. Only made a dozen or so before VW/Audi killed them :(

Ive seen this in one the few remaining test cars at the museum at the Neckersulm NSU/Audi factory head office.

By "it doesn't exist anymore" I mean they pulled that glorious engine and used it for their diesel development... :(

greens and independents have come to an agreement with labour to make EV's FBT exempt. sticking point was the inclusion of plug in hybrids which will also be exempt with a 3 year term. Also agreement to move government fleets onto EV's where possible with a goal of creating a solid 2nd hand market in 3 years time. Good time to jump on if self employed or can get a novated lease.

I'm not sure I like FBT exemptions on anything. If I want to buy something I have to do it with earnings I paid tax on.

Without any shadow of a doubt, this is by far the best Wankel car ever built. Sadly it doesn't exist anymore....

I saw a white or perhaps silver C-111 at Beauleigh Motor museum back in the 90s. It was the wankel but I recall a note suggesting a V12 version was also proposed? It was pretty but other exhibits were more interesting to me. Back then individual owners and car companies would put vehicles on display for a period of time. One trip (have done a few) there was a great collection of early F1 cars, Bond cars etc. Worth putting on a list of things to do, like Farnborough or Biggen Hill air shows and so on.
