    It's interesting seeing the quarter glass like that..sort of a look into the future for these cars. Also for some reason that hood/grill treatment looks awesome to me.

    Pretty cool! I see early SVO, some capri, and some 87-93 mustang in the styling.

    That was a dream car for me back in the day. Very nice. I still want to do the flush side glass thing. All glass was flush. The side windows hinged at the top and only opened a few inches at the bottom. The wheels had clear, flat covers attached at the bead. All in the name of aero.

    A turbo 2.3 if I remember right. Subtle silver, red and gold paint if I remember right.

    I would pay big bucks to own this car.

    Well maybe the paint wasn't so subtle.

    I adore everything about this car. Interior and exterior especially the taillight(s). I wonder what happened this thing? Would it have been dismantled by those who made it?

    I remember this car from Jr. High. It had the audio controls built into the steering wheel....that was the first concept car I ever saw with that feature.

    Interestingly enough, I was just browsing on Howstuffworks.com and saw this car as an icon on the "How do they create the hopping cars you see in the movies?" tab. Check it out, its the third column down:

    I would have to say it's a "tribute" to the original car. The car in the link does not look as good as the one in the first post. I don't care for seeing the gap in the fender extensiosns nor the atachment hardware. The car in the first post is verry nice. I would love to have it. I guess that's why I own a Capri.
