    William A. Dayton at Chrysler is told to made actual final line on interior and exterior on Diablo.

    btw. Why have they painted prototype red? Isn't that worse color for inspecting form?

    i recall the red one was full scale mock up, the running test mule at nardo was robin egg blue

    gandini original was marginally better than Chrysler altered diablo or cizeta imho

    balboni in his latest book said something to the effect that the bravo performance was disappointing? i find this odd since its was built on a (shorten) production platform and standard drivetrain though they claimed 300hp power.. not much details i recall in the newer book other that he said it had cooling issues despite all those louvers :)

    jp carstyling, uk car april, 79, uk motor april 78 and dm Rallye Racing 77 magazines had featured the bravo and driving impressions. a ton of other italian publications as well.

    to this day, i have no ideal what my Rallye Racing mag says since ithe text is in German. :) it be nice to know if it was in an french and Japanese magazines?

    i luv these long lens shots that show the diminutive scale of the bravo next to the already low exotics of the 70's stratos and 308 for reference.. the top photo at the barcelona motor saloon shows the solitary bravo making it difficult to judge its scale even with the enamored crowd standing behind looking down at it. given the size of current supercars, yet alone a x19 that dwarfs it, the bravo must have been one jewell of a mini supercar.

    sad to think what might have been if lambo would have been able to produce it. im kicking myself for not taking up a offer by bertone to prod around the car in the flesh right before they sold it.

    Fascinating selection of cars. I recognise the Ferrari 512S, Stratos and Bravo but can anyone identify the other ones?

    Thanks

    Thanks very much. I struggled to find out anything about the 'Opel VRX' but eventually worked out that you meant the Vauxhall XVR? However, I think the XVR was a previous Vauxhall concept car. The one in the photo seems to be the Vauxhall SRV, which is a bit like a British four-door four-seat Ferrari Modulo - I wish they had produced it! But the Bravo remains my favourite.

    Must be a bit before the show. During construction. There is an interesting warning writing on the windshield, but I can’t decipher it.

    I don't want to sidetrack the thread, but I think this is a genuinely interesting car. It was created in the same year (1970) as the Stratos concept and the Ferrari 512S (both the one pictured above and the Modulo), a year after the Iguana and some years before the Bravo. And it has four seats! Who says Vauxhall wasn't a progressive company? ;)

    PS I'll leave you to work out which woman is Mrs Thatcher!
