    Default Spotted 205 T16?

    Spotted what looked like a 205 T16 in Geelong early yesterday afternoon. If not a T16 it was heavily flared. Anyone know anything about it?

    Ha ha. A *real* 205 T16 is mid-engined. The fact that you can see the top of the rear seats is, like the reading of a will, a dead give-away. Also they have an internal cage/frame, visible in the side rear window.

    Looks to be LHD tho, which is interesting.

    If it were up to me and I was in the A310 I would have, in the Territory with the wife beside me and baby in the back, those things are frowned upon I'm afraid.

    Pretty sure it wouldn't be a real T16 which the road going version was only available afaik in Winchester Grey and are now VERY rare...


    Spotted 205 T16?-205-t16.jpg

    and as other ppl have suggested, it was probably a Dimma. This one is tweeked a bit beyond a std Dimma.

    Thanks guys. I wasn't aware of the Dimma, the wide body does have similarities to a T16. Always wanted a hot 205, not allowed any more toys though.
