After the Le Sabre came out, there were a bunch of knock-offs of it. This is one of those cars called a Comet.

I hinted at what it was, but figured someone else could have a go at it. I said it "must really fly" since it's powered by a V12 aircraft engine.

Its not a Packard and its not American although it was intended for export to the US. Unfortunately the management killed it off before it could make it into full production in 1952.

That should be more than enough clues
