An air intake like that isn't a bad ideia, but a design like that is a no no, it looks uglier than the 360... i never tought that would be achieved!

I now i'm going to be crucified, but that's MY opinion.

That's the only other picture I could find. Not in high res.

It's an ugly car IMO.

Here's a link I just happened to stumble upon while searching something totally unrelated, so I thought I should post it. Sorry it's in Italian.

Franco Sbarro

designer Franco Sbarro (from italy - emigrated to switzerland in the 1950's) and went on to become one of the countries most famous car maker and one of the design worlds most adventurous figures. some of his most interesting works are:

the Sbarro super 12:
an ingenious hatch with a red/white gradient paint job, distinctive at the time, which mated two kawasaki bike engines for form a 12-cylinder unit.

The Sbarro bugatti royale dynasty:
replica of the bugatti royale, with two joined Rover V8's.

The Sbarro Monster G:
AWD system, wheels taken from a boeing jet - these made the Monster G sit some 7 ft 4 inches tall, with a 350bhp mercedes benz 6.9 litre V-eight.

1995 Sbarro Alcador:
like all of Sbarro's concept cars - all were fully functioning capable of being driven in anger - the Alcador utilised a ferrari engine producing 400bhp.


also check these names out:
Isatis
Issama (for alfa)
Ionos (Sbarros ideal of a modern day lancia stratos)
Urbi (uber small urban car)
Astro (pure acceleration)
Chrono (funky ideal for easy engine access)
Challenge (ultimate wedgy?)

EDIT: almost forgot, he is famous for his pioneering work on hubless bikes and cars alike


i know nothing at all of this maker
