Errr...I'm confused here. How can a SL be a predecessor to an SLK? The reference in the article seems to be a poetic one, well not literally, but more like the SLK was a modern day equivalent of the 190 SL. A small, nimble, convertible.

A5: Connect The Blackhearts, Porsche and the angle 60 degrees.

Not worth Googling. Wrote this question myself for a quiz I held.

Ok, the answer for A4 is Bruno Sacco. Very famous fellow, he also did the first bug-eyed E class.

And anyway, I thought this was just a way to have some nice fun and test one's knowledge. If people are using google, then I shall post tougher questions for you alone .

And samurai, I dont see anything wrong if they use google, they are just learning more.

Or lets make it like this. Googled answers are only allowed if the question is not answered 24 hours after it is posted.

How about that, eh?

A6:
Who designed the Lambo V12??

A7:
What was the Porsche 911 originally to be called? Why was its name changed?

A8:
Name the present ( and very famous) chief test driver at Lamborghini.

A7: The 911 was to be named 901. But Peugeot objected as Two numbers with a Zero in between them was their patent.

A8: Valentino Balboni???

For the question A6. Which V12 are you talking about. Lambos have had a number of sportscars with different V12s in them

Stratos, the basic structure of the V12 wasnt changed drastically until the Murcielago came along. I am talking about the original V12 in the 350GT, used up to the Diablo.

A10 - The rare and beautiful Volvo 262C was built by an Italian coachbuilder by modifying 264s built in Sweden. What was the name of the Italian coachbuilder?

Ok... is A5 the 944... just a guess or a string of thought... since 911s have predoniminantly boxer engines... 60 degree angled cars were only the V6s/V8s. Now all i can think of is 924/928/944/968. Is that correct viper?
