Weird and wonderful car creations that should never have seen the light of day
This book is dedicated to a select group of designers and marketing people round the world who came up with vehicles so totally bizarre, ugly, or inappropriate—in some cases all at once—that they must be recorded for posterity. Some people have designed deliberately bizarre cars, but what distinguishes them from the vehicles in this book is that, amazingly, all these cars here were meant to be serious offerings to the motoring public. From the Lancia Thema 8.32, hideously fast and very expensive, for some reason built to look exactly the same as the ordinary Thema to the Russian ZIS 101 Sport, based on a limousine and the longest two-seater sports car of all time, the cars in this book will raise a smile and few eyebrows. Each car is illustrated and includes technical details.
