Doesn't the oil filter cannister resemble
what we used on our old Fiat 1100s, before the Padmini S1 switched-over to the contemporary spin-on type? It had a fixed pot and lid with center-bolt, and renewable cartridge.

The manual gearbox had a "three-on-the-tree" (3-speed) column-shift lever.

Guess what car is this - a curious mix of Ford Ikon and Opel Corsa.

ID:189 is a 1938 Panhard Dynamic.



It was a large majestic pre-Second World War luxury car for the bourgeoisie.

In typical French art-deco style with all details matching, its headlamps were concealed behind grilles that matched the radiator grille.



This 1938 model had a monocoque (unitary body construction) and a centrally placed steering wheel (so you could have two better halves (thirds?) on either side ).

The centre pane of the three piece windshield was wiped by three wipers.



An ultra-quiet 3.8 litre, inline 6-cylinder engine with Knight sleeve valves, powered this car. Panhard was BTW, the the last major carmaker to use a Knight sleeve-valve engine in a mass produced car.

It had torsion bar suspension like our Ambassadors with hydraulic shocks.
A double circuit hydraulic brake system operated Panhard shoes in drums (each shoe covered 340 degrees per wheel).

That is correct Stratos. In fact, I had forgotten the name of the car, as I had removed the name while saving the image on my comp. long time back. Posted the picture to actually find out the answer and have now verified it also.

It's certainly not a Diablo. From the tail-lights it looks like a Mosler/Saleen. But the wild body kit & skewed stance makes it look like as if it's a Digitally Modded car.

Dear friends:

I'm sorry to dampen the enthusiasm, but doesn't this violate the framework of our thread on two counts.

1) Our Team-BHPian posting the picture states that he doesn't know the year, make and model of the car in the picture he has posted. So it does not qualify to be on this thread.

2) It looks like picture produced as a demo of a 3D rendering software. Many such demos aren't even real cars! In any case if is not a production car, it does not qualify to be on this thread.

Also while we're on the topic, kit-cars, one-off concept cars, motor show cars and customizations also don't qualify to be here.

hey i was just curious to know which car is this so i decided to ask my fellow bhpians sir.

and it did not look like a digital image to me but if it is one then my bad also i did not find any other appropriate thread to post the pic and i was not keen on starting a new thread just for this.

But if i am wrong then my apologise, mods please delete the post

thanks
