That is an epic design, however much as with the new Discfender, that’ll never be made once the bean counters at Audi get their hands on it. Needs to be a small indie like Ariel, (looks like a Nomad with a closed cabin), to ever get a design as great as this looks actually into production.


Reminds me more of this:

Especially the 4 seat version:

Someone locally uses the 2-seater as his pub-runner. Mrs Grenadier likes it. So it's on the list as our 'get to the ski lift and find a parking space' runner. Although I'd prefer a Nomad and indeed have an option on one, local trader going bankrupt. Thumbs Up Monsieur Le Grenadier

I've not been everywhere, but it's on my list.....

Hey - that sounds like a nice option to have, although for your stated use I'd think the Can Am would be more appropriate.

Keep toying between those two vehicles myself, obviously the Nomad would be able to eat up more roads miles but is double the cost on an on-road Maverick. Just not sure how well the belt transmission would stand up to much road use? There was a rumour that Can Am were looking at a DCT gearbox and I'm hoping that it might get announced some time soon...

Of course you also have/had the AXR buggy which would be ideal for your purpose. I remember seeing this one back in 2006 and was quite taken with it:

Have you got the spec on the Nomad?

I wouldn’t own another Audi in my life most terrible cars we’ve owned!

I think it's fair to say that this particular Audi is nothing like any that you, or anybody else, has owned Laughing Darren

It’s all German scrap in my eyes. I’m talking all of them had major mechanical failures at least once and all bought, serviced and maintained in the main dealer.

I worked with an Audi/VW/Porsche mastertech with over 40 years experience and he’s of the same thought of me.

Are you a Audi lover? Shocked

Not particularly. I just thought your reply was a bit odd when the subject is a sci-fi show car that nobody is ever going to be able to buy. Darren
