It is based on the Frontera. Apparently, they're going to try selling the 'Landwind' SUV here in Europe once it meets EU crash regs (apparently, they've got it to match the three stars of the Frontera it's based on now! Though if you ask me, we should be expecting a lot more than that of a new car now. I wouldn't buy one.)

Looks like the McLaren F1 is a pretty safe car to have a crash in; shame a carbon fibre monocoque is so expensive

Currently in Azurael's garage:
TEB64 (Cosmic Grey) 2001 'Y' Laguna II 1.8 16v Privilege Tourer (KG0B F4P-770)/TED44 (Odyssey Blue) 2001 'Y' Laguna II 1.8 16v 'Expressionale' Hatch (BG0B F4P-770)

Good find that vid of the F1 Azurael! It just err, stopped

As for ther Frontera thing - "once it meets EU crash regs" methinks they've a bit of work to do on it yet! And the Frontera is based on a truly ancient Isuzu design, I wonder why they're wasting money on an old car when surely it must be more economical to design a new one?! I suppose not then

The Vauxhall Cavalier - one of the safest cars you'll bump into
