DISCUSSION

I don’t know what type of car this is, but it looks absolutely hideous. The proportions are all wrong, particularly from the rear of the door back. The front fenders look like it’s supposed to be streamlined, but the grill and headlights look like they pulled the design from a kids’ block-based toy. And what the Hell is going on over the rear wheel arch? I’m guessing it’s rear-engined and that’s a flip up engine cover, based on the forward leaning panel line. I get it, it’s probably an exotic. And it’s also undoubtedly rare. Most assuredly, it’s over-priced. Odds are favorable, at least for it’s time period, it performed wonderfully. But I’m betting a lot of people passed on the vehicle because 1) it was insanely expensive to begin with and 2) it’s butt-ugly.
