Probably an Alfa 33 that became a piece of art in 2001, see this page for more of Erwin Wurm's work.

20 year old alfas aren't worth saving!

There is a classic car restoration tv programme in the UK called flipping bangers the aim is to buy a £500 wreck and get it running do it up and sell for £1,000. This worked on Toyotas and Renaults but not on an Alfa . They tried everything they could spending £300 and many hours welding but in the end they had to admit defeat and scrap the car as unsafe and unsaveable,

The full sad story is at A+E - Blaze if you can open it

Or these are the before and after photos

@pescara:

Was this from a movie?

No it was the real deal. The violent demonstrations in the Paris of 1968 were massive (putting to shame in magnitude those in the U.S.). They included street and bridge barricades, piles of burning tires, and the ever-popular Molotov ****tails, which, I suspect, are what did in the cars in the photo, along with clubs and rocks. That Sprint just happened to be on the wrong rue at the wrong time.

Real history, with the students of Nanterre and other, ready to become Maoiste. Young people always want to make the "revolution" but don't think further than the tip of their nose.

It all started because boys could not go to see girls in the dormitory at the University of Nanterre. It was unorganized and after politics took over.

A few people have emerged from this moment and surfed on the wave like Daniel Cohn-Bendit...

Images from french alfa forum, user "mrgreen25". Thanks to him.
