Correct. That car evolved throughout its life, gaining the strakes, etc.

I'm not familiar with that particular car. Concept or production model?

A brace of customised Pontiac GTO's ( the C21st GTO, based on GM Holden's bland-looking Monaro).

Was watching Grand Tour last night where they ran a Porsche 918 against a Bugatti Veyron and Porsche certainly are not doing themselves in favours with the 50 shades of grey approach to colour

Yeah, & nah, the steel rims failing in series-production racing wasn't too cool, & that's why ROH got the call to
supply the factory showroom-stock R/T six-packs with 'mags', an Aussie 1st ( & duly followed by Torana XU1/Falcon GTHO).

Hemmings recently ran a story on this newly rediscovered 1963 Mustang III concept car.
Thought it turned out kinda nice . Shorter with a 302 powerplant.
