Chimera

Thanks Gabriel for posting this.

 

Good to see the first-gen Riviera getting appreciation from enthusiasts in Europe.  I'm sure that Riv can be a handful to drive on the narrower streets of Switzerland!  

 

The featured car has quite a few less common options, including rear defroster and KX dual-quad engine (rarer than a Gran Sport). The video quotes HP and torque figures for this engine wrongly - these should be 360hp and 465 ft.lb.

 

A couple of curiosities:  The stainless steel molding at the top of the windshield is missing from the car in the drone shots.  In addition to the misaligned clamshells, the car develops a burned-out tailight towards the end of the video.  And, the VIN plate on the driver's door pillar is missing!  Look at 4:58 of the video.

 

I'm wondering if the exterior color is the original Turquoise Mist.  The featured car looks to be a darker shade of blue to me.

 

In all a pretty car.  It surely gets a lot of attention in Europe!

 

Adding to the video's appeal is the lovely Swiss scenery and our engaging commentator Mr. Boersma with his James Bond (Sean Connery) like accent!
