A new Italian sports car inspired by African masks? Sure, I'm game. According to Car Body Design, the the African Automotive Design Association teamed up with an Italian engineering collective to create a new supercar model inspired by the 1969 Bizzarrini Strada GT 5300. Designer Jonathan Kasumba's sketches (see above and after the jump) took inspiration not only from the Strada, but also from the detail of African masks' facial features. It can't be any worse than flame surfacing, and may even appease the gods in time for a bountiful harvest.
