info about possible Monteverdi, please

I have this 2 photos a long time ago. When I 'capture' him in the web I classified like 'Monteverdi', but I don't remember why. Now, past probably one year after, I don't have information about this model. All my "Monteverdi folders" don't have similar design, also.
Can anyone help me whit info or, maybe, more photos?
Thanks for advance

It could be a modified Monteverdi Tiara, the doors look similar. It had either a 3839cc V8 engine (204bhp) or a 4973cc V8 engine (231bhp), both sourced from Mercedes-Benz. Top speed was 215km/h for the 3.8-litre and 235km/h for the 5-litre.

EDIT I attach some pics of the Tiara.

It's got Mercedes wing mirrors... Jaguar headlights... a Rolls-Royce waistline...

Just goes to show that you can combine some of the most elegant and graceful brands in the world together and get something that looks utterly like shit!

Interesting contribution, however.

For sure, the greenhouse (and interior) is unmistakably W126.

So behind their disguise, both the Lotec and Motiverdi are in essence a re-skinned - and uglified - Mercedes

Basically yes.

Coachbuilding gone terribly wrong (especially in the case of the Lotec), I guess.
