That's quite a nice looking car, I love the retro futuristic style.

Funny how a lot of the supercar stylings associated with the 80s are from the 70s.

Probably because they emerged in the 70's, but they got very popular during the 80's, and became the styling which the customers in the 80's demanded, therefore a lot of cars in the 80's continued developing that sort of futuristic style, which became distinctive for the 80's.
Just like the Lamborghini Countach, which I posted on the first page.

Anyone who like normal (read affordable) cars? I love the Hyundai i10 first gen and also the Atos Prime. Lotsa car for peanuts.

Maybe Chevrolet Cruze, if it qualifies as affordable.

Are there any rear engined front wheel drive cars except for the Dymaxion car and the Maroon car?

Quote:
A rear-engine, front-wheel-drive layout is one in which the engine is behind the rear wheels, but drives the front wheels via a driveshaft, like a conventional front-engine, rear-wheel-drive vehicle traveling in reverse.

Although an uncommon drive layout, it has been used in the past, by Buckminster Fuller in his concept Dymaxion car, which was able to turn within its wheelbase due to rear-wheel steering.

I've got interested in the topic, and even if I'm not sure if I understand it perfectly, because it is not my domain, maybe the Mercedes SLR McLaren has that sort of engine, but I'm still not sure, if it's not correct, then I apologize for the wrong information.

Streamliners were actually a big thing in Germany during the pre war years. Here's the less known Mercedes Benz W 125 Streamliner from 1938.

Top Speed: 432.7 km/h (Record - Rudolf Caracciola, 1938)







Famous racing driver Bernd Rosemeyer died the same they Caracciola put up that record, when he crashed the Auto Union Streamliner on the same public road. After the crash, they stopped testing them. Their Mercedes Benz T80 never made it. It had six wheels and an airplane engine



After the war, Mercedes Benz brought that knowledge into racing again, when they used a streamline again in 1954 and 1955. Here you can see the Mercedes W196, both it's normal and streamline types. They won the F1 Championship with argentine driver Juan Manuel Fangio both years.

that's exactly the car that inspired Norman E. Timbs for his amazing Buick Streamliner (the car of the first post in the thread)
