By 1970, federal emission regulations, fuel prices, insurance companies - everyone was blasting the unanimous villain - the Muscle Car! For 1970 the car companies bucked the trend.

But by 1971, sense started filtering through. Peak power figures started giving way to sensible figures, safety norms started taking centre-stage. The end of the muscle era was near.

A product of this transition year was the SC/360. It had a 360 cu in (4 ltr) engine, which gave out 245 bhp in standard form, or 285 in 4 barrel carb form.Only about 784 were built, and no one loved this confused muscle-econo hatch. In less than a year, the car died out a natural death.

Here's a pic of the engine bay in four barrel carb, ram air format:

ID756

You are correct sir!

The car was dead because other than an AMX nobody was that into AMC cars even in the horsepower days. It still held a stigma of being a Rambler which in young muscle car guys minds meant Grandpa's car.

@CyCarConsulting - I'm intrigued, sir. The headlamps are like an Elise, the shape very Corvette. Any hints, before it is time to disclose the car as per forum rules?

No takers? Alright then, ID:757 is a 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II. The car pictured would be the only surviving example which - to make things more exciting - was equipped with a formidable 429 SCJ engine, if I'm not mistaken?

This car is an invalid entry in our forum because it violates the rule about one-offs, prototypes and concept cars.

This car was a one-off concept car, which Ford had planned to manufacture,
but!
sadly, it was never manufactured !

ID:757 I'm just wondering why Ram would post a give-away ... but I think he has something up his sleeve.

This is, obviously, a late '90s Toyota Supra (Mark IV twin-turbo) based car ... the hood scoop is non-standard, and I'm willing to bet that this is a German VDA-registered "car manufacturer's" work.

Cheers,

FourWheelDrift

Default ID:757; 1996 Toyota Supra

You're right FourWheelDrift,
ID:757
is just a 1996 Toyota Supra sold in Bavaria, Germany.

In Germany, it came with a twin-cam, in-line six-cylinder, 24-valve, EFI engine, 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic.

The normally aspirated engine produced 220 bhp @ 5,800 rpm and 210 lb./ft. of torque @ 4,800 rpm. The same engine with twin-sequential intercooled turbos produced 320 bhp @ 5,600 rpm and 315 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4,000 rpm.

It had a specially tuned intake system, and split-exhaust manifolds for reduced engine back pressure, enhanced power output and greater fuel economy.

During low-speed operation, only one turbocharger operates, using less exhaust energy to improve response and torque from a standing start. In the middle-speed range, the second turbo comes to idle at a pre-set exhaust pressure for a smooth transition from the primary to the secondary turbocharger. Both turbos operate at full boost in the high-speed range.

Standard came a defeatable electronic traction control system which automatically sensed wheel spin, limiting power to prevent it and maintain traction.

It had a four-wheel race-derived light-alloy double-wishbone fully independent suspension with coil-over shock absorbers and hollow front and rear stabilizer bars for less weight. And lateral G-sensing four-sensor, four-channel ABS. Also a limited-slip differential and traction control system, engine oil cooler and a 100-Amp alternator.

Tires were 235/45ZR17 in front, on 17x8-inch alloy wheels, and 255/40ZR17 in the rear on 17x9.5-inch alloys.

So, I guess, the same manufacturers have carefully positioned cars for discerning markets.
