A12: ( not an easy one this)

Name the famous special which record-setter Ak Miller piloted in big races like the Carrera Panamerica, Mille Miglia etc in the fifties.
( clue: it spawned a part 2 version too, and was restored in the late nineties)

A13:
Name the person who won the first F1 race ever.

A14:
Name the person who engineered the ingenious suspension on the Austin Mini and 1100, and who was a partner of Alec Issigonis.

A15:
Speaking of Alec Issigonis, what other popular small car did he design other than the Mini??

Ok 2L8, only A13 was right.

Please remember I said FIFTIES. The Mustang didnt exist in the fifties.

Ok a clue for A14: He also used to make Bicycles named after him which sold well.

Sorry for the delay.

A5: Connection is "I love rock and roll". Joan Jett originally performed the song, with her band, The Blackhearts. Britney Spears copied it, and gyrated around a Harley V-Rod. The V-Rod has a 60 degree V-twin, tweaked by Porsche.

Long weird connection, huh?

A8. NOT Valentino Balboni. His successor, and present chief tester, is one Signor Giorgio Sanna.

I remembered, because Autocar India carried a review of the Gallardo. Being a Lambo fan, I've pretty much memorised it. And I remembered "...despite this, an expert like Sanna can just about beat the e-gear away from zero"!!!

Yeah, I'll give it to you. I was looking for pianos. That's why Yamaha has tuning forks in their logo. Suzuki was more famous for its powerlooms and weaving machines.
