Last month we inadvertently created a little bit of a stir with the two KRB cars. Whilst most marvelled at the finished builds – and their potency on track – some were quick to point out that these aren’t either really a Lotus or an Audi, due to their silhouette nature.
This of course, got us thinking. Is a Mustang Funny Car actually a Mustang? What about a DTM M3 – is it really a BMW? Is a NASCAR Toyota Camry a Camry? Super GT R35? Although the cars clearly capture the spirit of the models that they are based on, and in some cases are even prepared by the original manufacturer, have they lost their authenticity?
If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then surely it must be a duck, right? Right…?
