    New EU-mandated tall front ends?


    What's the deal w/ this new EU regulation that is requiring these new high car front-ends (like the new Audi A6)? something to do w/ pedestrian collisions? I would imagine that in general a tall front may cause nore damage than a low sloping one...

    Is this going to affect sports car designs like the 911?

    Re: New EU-mandated tall front ends?

    Tall front ends are to give more air space between hood and hard parts of engine . Many pedetrians struck by cars die from the head first denting the soft, forgiving hood , then getting skull crushed when it strikes the unforgiving engine underneath. ( Mangled legs are not the issue here ). Porsche 911s and Boxster are OK as their motors are in back. Some manufacturers like MBZ are engineering radar triggered airbags that will deploy from the grill in order to keep a sleeker hood profile.

    Re: New EU-mandated tall front ends?

    How about looking both ways before crossing?
