This design has been posted before, but this is a better picture of the car. I think i remember it being designed in the 1920s - 1930s ! :

No, the memory is the second thing to go, and I don't remember what the first was.

It looks like the covered prototype is missing a few body panels.



Also another very interesting new car, Ford GT.

I really like the way the back has a tear drop shape and the tail lights look like they may be a vent too.

Golf GTI w12 650-16


Similar flying buttress on a bubble-top coupe. I think the wing is better integrated. It went 200mph.

Bumping this thread, which has been viewed 300.000 times.

The Ca-MEiV Concept:

http://www.caranddriver.com/news/mitsubishi-ca-miev-concept-photos-and-info-news

What I find most interesting is the recessing channel or duct bisecting the backlights. I think it would act as a vortex generator pulling air off the upper sides and using it to cut off the air flowing over the top with a scissor-like action. Effectively, cutting off the wake at mid-taillight.

I think it's a styling muse.

I like the mirrors.
