Adonijin 800I

The Adonijin 800I, a mid-engined sports coupe first released in 1964, was an instant hit for its unique design and massive power hike over its competitors in the 800cc market - boasting a whopping 100 HP while its closest competitor made about 70. It was originally intended to have a 1 litre engine, but the decision was made to downscale to 800cc to increase the redline, shave weight and bolster reliability. The original 1L engine prototype was prone to mechanical failure, but the 800cc engine was as reliable as a Toyota.



The biggest trouble the developers had when developing the car had to do with the front fascia - as distinct as they are, they proved problematic. An early prototype of the headlights produced some sort of anomaly that the engineers refused to discuss in post-launch interviews - although the rumour mill says it had something to do with one of the wheel arches attempting its best imitation of gelatin while the vehicle was stationary. Later revisions of the headlight design resolved this issue, and the car was swiftly pushed to production. The 800I would remain in production until 1971 with little change.
