Also, AmAppy is giving one away in a contest, which sparked this conversation from jonnybimmer.

If they were gonna go for the whole “Discount desirable design from an ironic source” angle, I could see a 780 Bertone being a much more fitting choice.

But then I’d feel bad associating the 780 with brand like AA.

Is there a horrible car you like better than these two?
