Mark !

There is one mistake on the site :

a car for country C23 ( australia ) do not exist -
and there are 11 C16 ( UK ) cars !

and all of the last 5 cars are build up for UK - C16 - have a look in the records i send to you - you will see all of them wear M-Code 061 - ( Version for Great Britain )

so even one of them came to Australia as your informations show up, it stays a C16 car !
you should correct this, to make an end to all that confusion and build a reference.

my two cents

Norbert

20 cars with airconditioning

18 cars with power assist steering ( in German : SERVOLENKUNG )

2 cars without Bordcomputer

81 cars with M718 - 5 without ! but all of them changed to VIN numeric of Mj 1993

( PS479XXX ) !

... could keep on

Best

Norbert

ah by the way - the bonnet lid is made out of KEVELAR not carbon fibre...

Excellent input Norbert, thx for this !

I would be very interested to know - and I bet you and/or mark will have the answer - how many cars have been deliverd as 100% lightweights (e.g. no aircon AND no power steering AND no airbags AND no power windows ... etc...)

Mark, I will start sending you pictures today and hope the VIN page will be soon up and complete !

BTW, not sure I will agree with the colour code of the cars : As a matter of fact you do not even mention (or did I get it wrong ?!) a Speed Gelb car in your colour recap (see please below) but as far as I know, Speed gelb was THE standard colour for the Turbo 'S' and most of the cars have been delivered in this colour ?! ... Grateful your comments ...

Amethyst Metallic - 1
Black - 6
Black Metallic - 1
Grand Prix White - 4
Guards Red - 4
Maritime Blue - 1
Midnight Blue Metallic - 10
Paint to Sample Color Unknown - 3
Paint to Sample Color Ferrari Yellow - 1
Paint to Sample Prior Year Color Unknown - 35
Paint to Sample Prior Year Color Speed Yellow - 3
Polar Silver Metallic - 11
Rubystone Red - 1
Unknown - 3
Unknown Blue - 2

There are three of these in perfect condition (under 100 miles each) at the Imperial Palace auto collection in Las Vegas. One silver, midnight blue and white all with custom magenta paint Speedline centres. Most of the cars in the collection are for sale but these 3 are not.

Well this could go on forever which is why I haven't gone down that path ... in the spirit of my other site this is probably too detailed option info for breakout. The site is really more to present the basic facts about the car and to locate and ID the individual cars.

As to carbon v. kevlar the factory calls it carbon fiber reinforced plastic .. does that mean kevlar? ... maybe, probably. I have simply used factory terms.

By my count no a/c, no airbag and manual steering is 37 cars. Norbert can verify that. Now this is probably a basic fact worth adding. Power windows was not an option as all the wiring for this was deleted as part of the specification.

Speed Gelb is Speed Yellow and there are at least 35 Paint to Sample Prior Year Color 'Unknown' - any one of those - or all of those for that matter - could be Speed Yellow. That is why we need to ID and get photos of every VIN .. which is the ultimate goal of the site (as is the case with the flachbau.com site).

Must be 479070 from the look of it. GPW, RHD, no A/C. Rollbar was not standard but could have been added at the factory.
