The best looking car ever made, for under £35 the 406 Coupe. I've just seen one on French plates and it looked like a facelift. Confused as it looked factory.

Here she is.


I remember them being slated because Peugeot toned down the design from the original concept.

indeed    US  size plates and the  tacked on  under the bumper  rear fog   very strongly suggests import

Speaking of air-cooled oddities, I knew about the VW Gol, what I didn't know about was the Gol Furgao, which is the van version.  That said, I suspect the Furgao version was actually the later watercooled 1.6 rather than the air cooled Beetle derived 1.3 since I've only been able to find reference to the larger engined cars in van form.

http://www.lexicarbrasil.com.br/ is a little treasure trove of obscure-to-us stuff, popped up when looking for Gol info.  Amongst their gems is the Diaseta which seems very much in the same vein as the Argentinian Ford Falcon from the 80s.

I'm going to guess that with a flat four air-cooled engine under your seat and the brochure bragging that it is the "basic transporter" you wouldn't be able to hear any of the comments made by others.

 

It certainly doesnt look like driver comfort was high up the list of priorities on the design document.

Wow! You actually found one in the wild!

 

I remember reading about these on Jalopnik a while ago. They also have a stupidly low power restriction on them, too. Something like 20hp or thereabouts.
