Just for Fun - Name that car !

Just for fun. Whoever guesses right names the next one. For starters, a famous exotic coupe of the 1930s, very aero looking if a lot of it is fantasy rather than efficiency. Often supercharged.

Since your a Englishman, I'm guessing it's a Rolls-Royce. The model I haven't a clue...

Not English, European though.

EDIT - I mean the car is European. But not British.

Clue - the grill is a little giveaway, think late 1920s / early 1930s grand prix racers. This is from the mid-late 30s.

Looks kind of like a Bugatti, but I couldn't tell you which model. The T50T Surprofile', maybe?

Cleanspeed gets the win, and so names the next car. The correct name (as I have it) is Atalante but that translates into all sorts.



Over to Clean Speed.

Something reasonably well known, a full car shot. You can blank out what you may think is obvious but leaves a clue. Eco-biased if you like, a concept, prototype, classic, or every day car from a show. You can include more than one photo and a clue, maybe a period or a country or region or production.

Hey I just made this up, so the rules are kind of in flux

EDIT - you can use the photo albums in your user profile to upload the blanked images and link to that. Obviously miss out the car name from the pic - that may be too obvious...

EDIT2 - You can even include just an indicator or a headlight, if it THAT well known...

Would it be ok to make a description and see who can get it right? I am atrocious with the whizbangery on the computer.
