Rinspeed - Yello Talbo
World premiere at the Geneva Motor Show 1996
Rinspeed Yello Talbo - to the future through the past
An utmost attractive world novelty is presented at this year’s Geneva International Motor Show by the well known swiss automotive design company RINSPEED DESIGN:
the RINSPEED YELLO TALBO
Concepted as a symbiosis between nostalgic and futuristic elements, the unusual appearance, based on the traditional design of a Talbot-Lago 150 SS by „Figoni & Falaschi" of 1938, shows off in a pastel yellow color. This in a play of words and colors about the partner „Yello" - one of the world’s most renown music groups.
The interior is decorated with precious fabrics of „En Soie". The fiber-optics controlled „ODR"-stereo system of „Pioneer" is unsurpassed in its quality. A „Crash" watch - made from recycled aluminum material - can be easily switched from the wrist of the driver to the horn button by a simple twist - and, of course, vice versa.
The supercharged V8-engine - coupled to an automatic gearbox - with a 5.0 liter displacement and an output of 320 HP enables the RINSPEED YELLO TALBO to breathtaking acceleration figures (5.5 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h). The suspension was concepted by „Eibach" and the ultra-wide Dunlop tires (265/35 ZR 20 - SP 8000) are mounted on chromed BBS RS-II wheels (9x20") and guarantee an optimal handling.
