Q Ships and Sleepers

Post by MP5 on Mon 25 Oct 2010 - 22:22

Kara finds Allison browsing the web for cars. what is of note, however, is that Allison's not looking up her usual dream machines. Instead...

Kara: You're looking up people movers?

Allison: Yup! Perfect for missions! They're anonymous, perfect for low profile, carry lots of stuff, and if you fiddle with them right...

Allison reveals two videos she's watching:





Allison: ...they make the ultimate sleepers.

Kara: You're insane. What's your plan, dare I ask?

Allison: Fiat Ducato... with a 6.0L Ferrari V12.

Kara: Ok, I'm telling Michele to lock up the barn...

Brian: Allison, your task was to build a van that could be used for pursuit but also remain inconspicuous...was it not?

Allison: Absolutely...this thing might not be as fast as my Delta or one of Mr. P's Ferrari's, but it's no slouch!

Brian: (facepalm) I fear you've lost sight of the second part of the assignment. It is no longer inconspicuous if you paint it in racing colors.


Allison: Well I suppose you're right, if you want to be lame about it.



This particular Transit was just a promotional vehicle, but in good-natured response to the insane V-10 powered Renault Espace F1 Ford entered a Transit van in the 24 Hours of Spa Francochamps back in the 1990's...and actually finished the race as I recall.

Of course, there's always the Uber-Kombi (Link to Alfisti's post), credited with helping Jethro & Monty extract the SWA's future gardener from Hamas held territory.

Brian: You're looking at MX-5's, Allison?

Allison: (clicking around on ebay) Yup!

Brian: But you already have one... not to mention, you beat a Lamborghini with it. So why another one... (he looks at the monitor) ...and why an older one?

Allison: (pulling up three youtube videos) Three reasons, Brian...
power...

Allison: Power...


Allison: ...and POWERRRRRR!



Brian: Great, another project car for you to have a coffee party with the Q-branch boffins for. I guess I'll-- Waitaminute... none of these have turbos, or superchargers, or nitrous... You're leaving them naturally-aspirated?

Allison: As much as I love creating my own air for the engine, I have seen the light. "There is no replacement for displacement."

Kara: (from down the hall) Damn right!

Brian: This is a new direction indeed... well, let me know when it's done.

That wont do it... Too much noise coming out of that tiny thing. Now for ride, mission supplies and bullet proofing, plus so ugly that no one would steal it, Fernando proposes a Volvo series stationwagon.

You need something Paul Newman built: A Supercharged V-8-powered Volvo 960 with independent rear suspension. Before he built and owned a 740 wagon that sported a turbocharged V-6 taken from a Buick Grand National. Evil

I've seen a few supercharged Fieros, those are pretty impressive. It's always the exhaust note that gives them away, though.

Glocks are not the shit. Glocks can fail the same as any other gun. I've seen it personally, and have even heard first-hand accounts of something as basic as a slide-retaining pin snapping, the slide flying off. Get over the obsession and buy what fits your hand, your wallet, and ability.

Kara would probably go with a real Q-ship like the 1993 Q45a (the one with the Cloisonné insignia that looked like a belt buckle for a TNT Wrestling Champion), but she'd swap the original 4.5 liter V8 for the new 5.6 liter model from the M56.

I've only ever had a stock 2.5liter. I may have linked to one or two that I knew of or found, though. It's been so long.

Fernando: In the art of Misinformation, one must be able to put on a convincing show. Hence, the next set of vehicles will be Michele approved and Kara gagged...
Kara: I refuse to set foot into that thing!
Fernando: Really? And I thought Michele was such a big Battlestar Galatica fan...

Now this is the perfect car!


What do the people at Top Gear have to say?

Apparently Plenty!

Unfortunately, Fernando likes it in red.

One of my personal favorite Q-cars of all time: the Lotus-Talbot Avenger...



Classic & Sports Car did a full writeup a little while back, but this is the only picture I could find on the interbotz.

There were only two ever made, as support vehicles for the Lotus-Talbot rally team. These of course being the days when you could only have two support cars and limited crew (not to mention that the crews had to drive the rally stage as well to reach the next service stop), underneath that frumpy estate wagon shell was a fully works prepared rally car. The intention of course being that the Avengers could be cannabalised if need be to keep the competition cars running.



Apparently even the late, great Henri Toivonen was unable to shake them on a stage.

Still talk of this being put into limited production:



Volvo S60, breathed on by Polestar... who build the Volvo touring cars and are now apparently starting to try and make themselves Volvo's equivalent to M-division or AMG. So far, so good: manual gearbox, AWD, 508bhp and 0-100 in 3.9 seconds.

I'm all for fast Volvoids. My first car was a 1979 242GT...which cost me the grand sum of $550. Believe it or not it was actually pretty quick, fast enough to take on and beat a 305c.i. Camaro. That was probably because most of its weight had flaked away in the form of rust...or maybe because I was 17 and too dumb/crazy to drive it any slower.

Pic related; a much nicer example than mine.
