No matter how much you think you know about cars, there is always going to be something at a motor show that you've never seen before and surprises you.

Well, here's another one, and it ain't pretty.

Our ace photog GF Williams grabbed a couple shots of this while roaming around the show floor here in Paris. Upon further inspection, we found out it is a Venturi "Somethingorother."

It's... peculiar. Yes, that's a good word for it. GF and I both found it interesting, and we like to share things with you fine people.
