    I do like the design. Clean and uncluttered, and not Japanese-looking at all.

    It does look cool. It was wearing slicks, but at the same time it looks like it ran on a dirt and rock covered unloading dock, LOL. That probably negated the advantage of slicks. I'd like to know the specs on the car like battery and motors.

    Yes, there is too much weirdness and mystery for me, but it didn't look staged.

    The inside of the finished car is very sterile and looks like you could get bored in there pretty quickly. It also has the thickset, most obtrusive A-pillars I've ever seen. IMO too much like a prototype than a finished car design.

    No road tests, No Shmee review, No Doug score, No production cars built yet? Not sure.

    Being built by Paolo Garella at Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT), Italy.
    They built SCG 003 cars, the Devel Sixteen, the Apollo IE prototypes and the New Stratos.

    Not a fan of the design almost looks like it’s cracking in half where the cockpit meets the front end.

    I think it looks very distinctive. Not like some generic designs out there like the Gordon Murray's T50 . I think if you saw one of these drive by you would snap your neck to look. What the F is that! :)

    1967 Bizzarrini - beautiful car
    Top of front fender line swoops back down towards A pillar. Top of rear fender swoops forward and down towards A pillar.
    The Owl is similar but exaggerated.
