    Re: does anyone know where i can find the CGT video

    I have a video from Turbo.fr with some footage from that video, I believe. Very nicely made video and there is as similar review for the Enzo with onboard cameras.

    Will find a way to forward it to you once I have access to my PC in Irvine.

    Re: does anyone know where i can find the CGT video

    Thanks, ben. I had not seen this video before.

    From the camera angle, it appears Herr Rohrl, when seated, is taller than the headrest.

    Re: does anyone know where i can find the CGT video

    Thanks Ben for sharing

    Röhrl is 1,95 m, should be about 6'5 foot!

    Re: does anyone know where i can find the CGT video

    I would've sent it to you but as I see you have got it...I have more then a gig of Carrera GT videos so if you ever need a video let me know

    Ben, did you undestand anything?

    The place is in fact Groß-Dölln, being a military airport used by the Russian army close to Berlin.

    The CGT presentation was held there, several other TV shows reported from there. Röhrl gave rides to several journalist putting the car through the corners in oversteer.

    The guy who was interviewed sitting in the CGT as a potential customer at the IAA '03 was just mentioning the CGT's specialty in terms of engineering and dynamics.

    Röhrl more or less said that the car could be driven like any 50p VW Golf once you got it rolling, as long as you have enough sensibility in your right foot...

    thanks. i watched that video a couple dozen times before my car came, but no i didn't ever understand a word :-)

    Re: does anyone know where i can find the CGT video

    I think it's interesting that their main aim (according to Röhrl) was to make the car gentle and forgiving at the limit.
    He says that most race cars are incredibly fast but hard to control when you reach their limit and that this setup would have been unacceptable for "secular" drivers.
    Somehow this seems to contradict reports I have seen about the drivability of the GT.

    nothing gentle and forgiving at the limit! if this is, i wouldn't be remotely ready for something that isn't!

    I believe that is where seinfeld got to have his first drive and wrote a report about it for one of the car mags.

    Well, that's what he's talking about during the TV show. Probably Promo-Speak to attract potential customers.

    BTW I absolutely love the first seconds of the video when they turn the keys and the engine comes to life. The sound is incredible. You must have goose bumbs every time you drive the car.

    Then don't ever drive a Lotus Turbo Esprit on a track. It'll scare the whiz out of you when it lets go

    BTW, I've been driving the CGT and X50 TT cab back-to-back the last couple of days. Even though the CGT makes the 996TT seem soft and weak, the AWD really does put down the power early in a corner with tremendous confidence. The CGT would be sideways when the 996 is merely twitching all four grabbing for traction in a really liquid motion. Just my observation.

    Re: does anyone know where i can find the CGT video

    just to show you guys I'm not bluffing...

    Re: does anyone know where i can find the CGT video

    HEY! I see my "CGT_slide" in there lol.

    Could you provide me a link? I guess I just missed on that one!

    I have not enough personal experience with race cars but what Röhrl said definately makes sense. They were trying to remain the racecars' character yet making it driveable for a bigger amount of people. Race cars te d to be pretty calm up to the limit and brake lose pretty fast and, most importantly, without a warning!

    On the other hand I remember K. Ludwig reporting about the development of the CLK-GTR for street use and the even smaller limit of the street- compared to the racetires!

    Does someone have Seinfeld's report on the computer?
