One thing I absolutely love about Speedhunters is the chance to collaborate with you guys, the Speedhunters readers. While our group of contributors collectively know a ‘reasonable’ amount about car culture and auto history, we certainly don’t know everything. But I like to think that if you add in the collective Speedhunters community to the mix, then perhaps we have something approaching a living, automotive knowledge-base.
And it was this knowledge-base that I wanted to tap into when I posted my recent spotlight on the Artz Golf 928. I asked for some links from you on the subject of ultimate sleepers. And you certainly delivered!
I am going to work through the links over the course of the next few weeks, starting out with a quick look at another Artz project: the Cordett.
Arts seems to specialize in creating these types of DNA mixing sleeper curiousities, often taking the chassis of a high performance car and grafting on the body of something more humble.
The Cordett follows this recipe: taking the chassis and drive train from a 1984 Corvette C4 and fitting a widened and lengthened Opel Kadett body to it. Top speed was quoted as 245 kph with a 0-100 kph time of 6.5 seconds.
It’s another mind bending Frankenstein sleeper from Artz! Tx to MIki for the link!
