For economy, opulence, muscle or just getting from one place to another, there` s a choice.
For handling there` s Alfa Romeo.

It looks like a prototype for the German-made Bitter SC, see http://www.bittercars.com/bitter/bitter.nsf/pages/sc , possibly the model Bitter holds in his hands at http://www.bittercars.com/bitter/bit...s/erichbitter.

The only 4 door Ferrari in the world belongs to the Sultan of Bruni He bought 2 456's (or 355's I don't remember for sure) and spliced the together to make a 4 door. I think I saw the write up in Foza or Cavalino.

Can you guess what this one is? (Hint: it's not a Ferrari).

Monteverdi

The engine was actually built by chrysler! I think the car is Swiss though... lots of horsepower! close to 400 on some cars... vroom vroom... cool designs too!

all you had to do was right-click properties on the picture and it told you the folder it was in which was hs375lfi and then I just pasted that into google and voila, here is the car!

Just a little bit of sneakiness

Pretty good. The right-clicking only worked because I intentionally linked the picture rather than copied it (I do respect copyright, as well as the intentions of the inventor of HTML and HTTP). The page that the picture of this car came from is http://www.tobiasullrich.de/monteverdi/cars/hs375lfi/

And yes, it is a Swiss car that was built with a Chrysler engine and a Fissore body. In my opinion, it is one of the most stunningly beautiful car designs ever and the silhouette seems to say "I want to go fast, fast, fast!" even when parked.

BTW, the manufacturer, the copyright holder, and the inventor of HTML and HTTP all seem to be within a 100 km radius.

The four door car could be the PININ. An experimental Ferrari. One off four door. The Pinin was actually built by PininFarina but with Ferrari's participation. For a while there was talk of Ferrari building a short of them.

I think it is now in the Pininfarina Museum.

I should have typed "there was talk of Ferrari building a short RUN of them.

I don't know why I didn't type that, that is what I said.
