Now that's kawaii. Not much clue at Pelican Parts, but I did find an article, that is translated here. It's a 2005 reproduction of a 1966 car. The original was white.

Fascinating car. Too bad it didn't finish that race.

A modern interpretation did actually finish its own race. In first place.


Won unlimited at Pikes' Peak... of course, that was after Monster Tajima moved over to electrics. Still cool. Hayabusa-based V8 sitting on one side, driver on the other. chain-driven all-wheel drive.

OSI Silver Fox (1967) from http://http://www.carstyling.ru/de/entry/OSI_Silver_Fox_1967/

Also:

Palatov Motorsport

Edit:
I think Burt Rutan's BiPod is the most viable flying car evah.

Yea, but to really fit into this thread they need to delete the wing and ducktail spoiler.

Thank you for posting the additional pictures NachtRitter.

It is. He's done a whole lot with that design over the past few years. Fascinating project.
