Really like these, but then again I've always had a hankering for unusual shooting-brake-type cars. Lynx Eventer is firmly on my Euromillions garage list  8)

Corrected that for you. The 90degree angle(it was supposed to be a V8) makes it very wide for its limited capacity, and requires a stupidly complicated ignition system for the peculiar firing order. Plus, it doesn't make much power nor is it economical or particularly durable. So it's a text-book example of French engineering ;D
