With top speed approaching 100 mph, efficient aerodynamic characteristics, weird triple headlights and an air-cooled engine in the back, this car sported radical looks and even more radical engineering. The only American car approaching it in terms of innovation at the time would be Tucker 48, although “the Tucker story” merits its own article (the car did not go over too well with the American car industry back then, alas).
