That thing is awesome. Also from one of your links:

The journalists took turns at the wheel for the first six hours and the loyal Abarth test drivers continued the record attempts for the rest of the three days scheduled. As well as shattering the 500 km, 500 mile, 1,000 km and 48 and 72 hour marks, the incredible Fiat Abarth 750 Bertone, rechristened the “Record”, amazed for its efficiency and low fuel consumption: just 6 litres per 100 km, meaning 16.6 km per litre of petrol at a speed of 150 km/h.
That is 39.2 MPG US @ 93 mph!

I bet it would do double that fuel economy with a modern DDiS 125 common rail turbodiesel from a Suzuki Celerio, which is a 793cc two-cylinder engine that also makes 47 horsepower @ 3600 rpm like the gasoline engine in the Fiat, and 88 lb-ft of torque @ 2000 rpm which should improve acceleration even with the gearing adjusted to allow the same top speed as it had with the gasoline engine. The version Fiat built with the gasoline engine had a power to weight ratio conducive to doing 0-60 mph in about 9-10 seconds(I don't really know its actual acceleration figure), but with the extra torque of the diesel, that might drop to around 7-8 seconds!

That Fiat Abarth 750 Bertone is IMO of the most interesting cars posted here.

Is the vehicle's logo a 'prancing embryo'?

I agree, and despite not following the template as a half circle in section it contains many of the ratios and features Aerohead has advocated.

For instance, canopy blister and wheel hump blisters seem to be 1:10 ratio in lieu of 1:5 for half form (aero-template) and 1:3 for free form blimp shapes.

Ok, I tried to embed it three different ways. You'll just have to click the link to find out.

That's awesome, and I'm pretty sure I might have seen something on this when I was 5-6 years old and it got embed into my brain. I say this because several generalized concepts are similar to the project I used to sketch up over and over again and eventually built a crude red clay model of.

I see some of everyone's work in my own design, just an attempt by my brain to interconnect the forms and ideas I guess.

Kind of like saying all houses with sloped roofs look similar despite the glaring differences.
