Two years ago, on 6 week a trip to the USA, we picked up "Sven". A 20 year old veteran, with 124K miles.

Sven runs a 2.9 litre, inline 6, mated to an AW 40 4-speed transmission. He generates 181hp (135Kw) max. He's not quick by todays standards, but he cruises well.

Here's some stats:

Output: 181 hp at 5200 rpm (135 kW at 73 rps)

Bore: 3.27" (83 mm

We keep him garaged with family in the USA, ready for our next visit to California
