Lightbulb Answers - Quiz 2

1. CADILLAC ONE - US PRESIDENT'S ARMOURED CAR

* The car is a special version of the Cadillac deVille, with five inch thick armour, able to withstand rocket-propelled grenades
* The tyres are designed to function even if punctured
* The exact dimensions and specifications of the car are kept secret, and a second decoy car is always used
* The car is designed to withstand chemical and biological attacks
* The underside of the car is also armour-plated
* The car can carry six people


2. Chevrolet HHR (for Heritage High Roof)

HHR is a retro-look compact crossover SUV launched by the Chevrolet division of General Motors at the 2005 Los Angeles Auto Show as a 2006 model. Designed to slot below the Equinox, it shares the GM Delta platform with the Chevrolet Cobalt, Pontiac G5 and Saturn ION. It is similar in concept to the Chrysler PT Cruiser, though a bit larger. It jointly replaced the Tracker as Chevrolet's smallest SUV.

3. Isuzu Axiom

The IA was an SUV designed in Japan using a "knife blade" theme for its car-like styling. Built in Lafayette, Indiana, U.S. at the joint Subaru-Isuzu plant on the Rodeo platform. It jointly replaced the Trooper as Isuzu's mid-size SUV. The name "Axiom" was determined by a naming contest held by Isuzu, and was won by Dr. Hakan Urey from Redmond, Washington, who suggested the name and won his own Axiom in 2001. Available with Torque on Demand four-wheel drive system. Direct-Injection engine added in 2004, boosting power from 230 to 250 hp (172 to 186 kW). The Axiom's radical styling was too extreme for some although a surprising number of its design elements later found their way into SUVs from other manufacturers.

4. Audi 50

The Audi 50 was a three-door supermini hatchback launched by Audi in 1974 and sold only on continental Europe. The car was offered with a 1093 cc engine producing either 50 or 60 PS (37 or 44 kW/49 or 58 hp) for the LS and GL models, respectively. The model was popular in Europe for both its high specification for a car of that time and the relatively low cost it was sold at.

5. Fiat Albea

The Fiat Albea is the sedan version of the Fiat Palio supermini, built in Turkey at the Tofaş facilities of the Italian automaker Fiat. It is the replacement for the Siena and has been in production since 2002.
The design of the car was signed by the Italian design-guru Giorgetto Giugiaro. [Fiat literally arbitrary order or decree. Hence the clue]

Hope you enjoyed the quiz. Please give your feedback as to the quiz was vago, tough, not interesting....., so that the next quiz can suit your interest.

Congrats raj_aryan4411 and ajitkommini for getting the answers right.

Well the Audi 50 became the VW Polo later on when it was decided to take Audi up-market. The takeover of Audi helped VW move to front engined water-cooled cars

Great Ajmat. Hats off to you! Never thought anyone is going to crack Q2. Good effort nikhilb2008. Team BHP is too good! Sixth question is not tough. You should be able to crack it.

Auto expo 98 is the right answer for Q1.
