Visual Sunday: The Future Saloon Anno 1967

    A fabulous car, though it did of course suffer mechanical issues and was thirsty – but just look at it! Still looks modern today.

    I couldn’t agree more @tony-wawryk.
    When the day comes where Claus and I decide to sell our 1st gen. RX-7, I could easily see myself opting for a RO80 to replace it, and thereby keeping a Wankel in the garage… ;-)
