I think that is the show car I saw last year. That would explain the skinny wheels. I would imagine they shipped it over for a show or PR tickle.

I, too, find the design strange.. as if the car exterior was molten at some point causing the grille to droop, the side lines to curl and the windows to sink at one end. The headlights look spooky.

This, on the other hand, is something I'd really love to see in the street. Better still in my garage.

I know. Wow, can you imagine rolling around town in that. Man, no waiting in line when they see you pull up. I wonder why cars like that never see the light of day?
