1940 Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 SS.
This car was stolen from the Russian collector Alexander Revo in the early 1990s in Moscow. Interpol found this car in Europe. Thief jailed. Because of the complexities of her return to Russia, the owner sold it in Germany....
The real owner, Alexander D. Revo didn't sell this car not in Germany nor in any other country. The thief did.

In other words, it was built to be an imposing car for pomp & circumstance to carry important people, often in government. There was no need or desire to build a beautiful car for that purpose. It was perhaps desired that the car would not outshine the "beauty" of the people it carried.

It may be pertinent today to know that even artists and creative builders can have their (generally) good taste corrupted or quashed by a government that instills fear & divisiveness more than a sense of pleasant wonder at how good things could be. Only if …

Naw, history is not important!
