They also had an optional automatic (gear selector on the tree) in
RL411 (R16) flavor. The carbs were the same but the intake manifold

The exhaust manifold was very goofy and restrictive compared to the
Roadster. The car originally had the E12 1200cc engine, and when they
shoe-horned the R16 in there wasn't enough room for the exhaust to go
out the bottom. Instead, there's a hole in the inner fender and the
exhaust goes out there then down. It is visible behind the driver's
