That Maserati has better proportions and surface development than the Ferrari 'breadvan' and the 151/3.

I like it.

An experiment in reducing the A in CdA:


Notice the vortex-busting fins on the Civic in the background?



And the Opel brings us back around to breadvans. So here's my father's Sunshine Bakery breadvan in the background behind my first car.

I missed a chance there. Today it would have a 3rd headlight and '56 Golden Hawk tailfins.

The Lambroghini Sogna. The surprise for me was that it wasn't done by Luigi Colani.

The 2015 Alpine GT6 Vision GT is only in Gran Turisimo 6? Then the Red Bull X2014 concept qualifies:

I don't like double posting, but here is this:


2015 ZiL Punisher Is Russia’s newest Troop Carrier

It's got open wheels and West Coast mirrors, but the windshield is laid back and it has plan taper. Sort of an anti-Hummer in more ways than one.

Pontoon fenders. Nice.
