LOL. Yes, that name is begging to be taken to task for, but I'll leave it as well. BTW, if you think that prior situation was a "flame war" you should drop by my home forum! LOL With 3000+ 16-25 year olds, typically that would be a discussion of great restraint! :lolbrentil said:I love the color name, ManGenta. What the hell is ManGenta. I'd make a comment about that, but a flame war would insue as we've seen before.
But it also says:Torana TT36, on the other hand, shares many basic structural elements with the latest GM sports concepts and much of its chassis componentry is sourced directly from GM.
I might be missing it, but I didn't see it anywhere that it said "this is a Kappa concept" Aside from that, the only intersesting thing about this car is the experimental engine that may or may not be produced, and if it is produced will probably never make it to America, and the glass roof that has been proven time and time again to not be practical due to the green house affect.It could be designed and produced off a number of GM platforms, taking advantage of the virtual maths-based processes and component sharing which enabled us to build this working concept in a very short space of time.
the scion tC has them, but it would be neat to have a glass roof with the push button tint like can be seen in really expensive homes, i'm not quite sure what to call it but it's like a real hi tech shade that activates at the push of a button!AeroDave said:Glass roofs look good on show cars but almost never make it to production. If you have ever spent any time in a '56 Ford Crown Victoria with the Plexiglass roof section (I think they were called Skyliners) you'd know why it's a dumb idea. Maybe they are planning a retracting shade system, and that might help, but a glass roof is also problematical for leakage and structure reasons too.
