Quote:
In 1925, they launched the Hanomag 2/10, a 370 kg (816 lb) open two-seater with a rear-mounted 500cc[1] single-cylinder water-cooled engine. Named Zweisitzer Limousine (two-seat limousine)[2] by the company, its rounded front and rear gained it the nickname Kommissbrot for its resemblance to a loaf of Army bread.
A strange followup to their steam locomotives.

I say fix the truck to the trailer, eliminate that gap altogether, and make both the front axles steer.
GM flirted with something kinda like it in 1963,but relied on floating gap-fillers

That's really sweet, excepting maybe the panel gaps.*

So when an unsuspecting original is 3D mapped with radar and 3D printed, they'll want to do some touch-up.

*speaking of panel gaps, I once saw a 1980s Lotus with door gaps you could stick you fingers into. Now Jalopnik is pointing at the new Alfa Romeo 4C:
