The Evolution of Cars

A fine example of an E30-series BMW 318 coupe spotted in Linenhall Street, Belfast.

This model has a kerb weight of 1,030 kg. The closest comparative contemporary model ( E90-series 318i ) weighs 1,435 kg. That's a difference equivalent to *five people*, or an entire Reliant Robin.

Marvellous "evolution". Truly the Ultimate Lardy Machine.


Even a 2008 Mini One weighs 1,205 Kg. What on Earth is happening?
