I do not have a rear view of this car, posting it based on wishful thinking.

Like the 1964 Mustang and 300SL, it's a bubble-top coupe:

Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6

Luxury flagship concept, Mercedes-Maybach 6 coupe.
'6' as in meters! Longer than it's Rolls Royce competitiors. No info of the drivetrain but it still has a steering wheel so may be semi-autonomous. It has extremely long wheelbase, an ample rear 'boattail-like' overhang, a smooth and sweeping yet elegant sideline and highlighted by a full-length chrome detail. The concept's impact is very similar to a previous Maybach coupe concept, the 2004 Maybach Exelero.

That ^ is a two seater?!?



The vanity trim loops all the way round the back of the chairs. No rear bench.

Mercedes, Mercedes... You took a Smart ForTwo, added two meters of boot and two meters of tail end (plus some minor details) and presto!





Two peas in a pod.

That's the most uncomfortable [looking] seat I may've ever seen. No side support unless you're a protoplasmic blob, and no support under the knees.

Fark.com had a Photoshop contest using the Schlorwagen, let's see if they allow hot-links:


http://www.fark.com/comments/9254370/Photoshop-this-vintage-streamlined-Pillbug-auto

15 entries at the moment. Above — MaxMemes, below —riced out



I'd have gone with contra-rotating pusher electric propellers.

Edit: Apparently not. The links worked when I posted but not today. You can click the link if interested.

Italdesign is Giugiaro. He offered this design to VW for the Sirocco and they said "We think we can do better". (Look at the cut lines on the hatch and hood) It wound up at Isuzu instead.

Edit: I did some more reading. The Asso di Picche was commissioned by Karmann (which explains their name plate on the rear) in the hope of getting the work from Audi.

The Impulse is actually modeled on their 1979 Isuzu Asso di Fiori:

The Ital Design Piazza/Impulse was credited with Cd 0.33.It was constructed,along with the Chevy Chevette on top of the Isuzu I-Mark platform.

But regional differences are also evident in many comments. Guangxi has a reputation for using both cats and dogs for meat, and is home to the infamous Yulin dog-eating festival, widely frowned upon elsewhere in China. "Guangxi people have eaten all the dogs and cats, that's why there's a rodent disaster," reads one comment.
