AutoQuiz 392 FINISHED

Recommended Posts

Since Michael is on a well deserved holiday, I'll take over this weeks quiz.

As usual, PM me brand, model and year!

No hints in this thread and, for the fun of it, play fair (no reverse lookup or Google-image search)!

Have fun and I'll het back to you at the end of this week.

This weeks car is a 1985 – 1993 Max Roadster 

The 772 kilo's heavy (?) car was developped on a Ctiroen AX (remember those?) chassis and sported Peugeot 405 rear tail lights. The engine was the 1.4 Citroen petrol engine with 84 hp. The car you see here, is the Roadester, though it was designed to be modular. Plans called for a Coupe, a Shooting brake and a Pickup.

In 1993, after 1 prototype 17 cars were built and after backrupcy some 5 or 6 more emerged, built from already produced parts.

So, that was the end of this short lived and seldomly seen Dutch brand.

How about a hint?

This car was designed to be modular & was based on proven "technique"...

Considering that I can't find anything IN ENGLISH for this, I am stumped. Reverse lookup found it, allright, but no ENGLISH search words found anything, and I tried for hours.

Yep, that part doesn't make it any easier.

But still, someone actually knew!!

Hats off to:

 

ACE_-GARAGEGUY 

 

He is the sole person who got it right.

I hope that, even though this was quite the tough one, you like the little peak into Dutch car brand history.

Thanks for playing!!

Only reason I knew it is 'cause I used to avidly follow limited-production cars (based on mass-produced platforms) with fiberglass bodies...and this little guy always reminded me of the Geo Metro convertible.  :D

That was a piece of junk. I saw so much ugly searching for this, I got seriously depressed and stopped looking on Tuesday. Anybody who bought one of these deserves to lose their money (they already lost their self respect)

Well done Bill

I love it when good old fashioned knowledge beats searching with Google!

I tried to search for this one thinking it was some sort of European version Geo Metro convertible. Nope! I've never heard of this car until today, and the fact that Bill was the only one that got it speaks to its obscurity! :D

I feel better knowing that I wasn't the only one searching in the Geo Metro rabbit hole.

Same here.  I figured somebody modified a Geo Metro/ Suzuki Swift, so I was hunting in the wrong continent.  Congratulations, Ace.

Also, it bad that when I see Xingu as the last post, my first thought is "Okay, why is this one being shut down?"
