NSFW – Warning, automotive erotica!

There’s no other way to describe it, but as Automotive Erotica… If Enzo F considered the E-type as the most beautiful car ever made, what would he say about the Eagle Low Drag GT ?

Who cares ? Drool on !

Spot the similarities

The compact sport executive segment which BMW has so ably dominated with every passing generation of the 3 Series (sorry MB,  Audi  :)) had its historical inception and inspiration in the old Rover’s P6 – mainly known as 2000 / 2200 / 3500.

If we pick one of the 3’s earliest generations (E30), beside the concept and technical highlights hidden below, can’t we also glimpse some aesthetical (proportions, stance) similarities ? What’s your opinion ? Or am I going over the rocker ?

As a final note, it’s a pity that Rover went belly up, eventually dragging even it’s old image and reputation down the black hole of history. Otherwise, these cars would be a lot more valued and maybe someone could make a good quality restomod of it (think Mechatronik, Eagle).

A refreshed P6 driven by an 3.9 or 4.2 EFI V8 with updated brakes / wheels /suspension should be a delight… Any takers out there ?
