That's strange, but it would be quite interesting to see it running.

For some reason, this reminds me of the famous "upside-down Camaro" race car from the 24 Hours of Lemons.

Only here for the wheel well covers?

When you have plenty of eff money and a partner in custom car crime. Justin Beiber and West Coast Customs play with his RR Wraith and taking some design cues from the most recent outrageous Rolls Royce concept. Doubt any serious aero improvements but see a full four wheel wells fully dressed with spats!
