    I saw this yesterday and just knew someone would post it here:)

    They have the endplates for a big ‘ol wing, but they forgot the wing.

    There was a flurry of publicity about the BAT cars in 1994. See:
    Automobile Quarterly v33 #3 Nov 1994
    Classic & Sportscar Jun 1994
    Special Interest Autos May/Jun 1994.

    As if the cars were finally together in one place and the press could be called.

    Such works of art. Some Italian cars were such eye candy and then these totally superseded that.

    But if I had one, owned one I don't know what I would do with it.

    Too bad all the '50s and '60 car designers are gone now. Most of today's styling is boring as a block wall.

    To a guy like me those designs seem timeless. Industrial design is at it's best when boundaries are abandoned.

    Sensational! Never knew of these, and I was an Alfa owner and club member decades ago. Their cars are pure passion

    In 1956 Quaker State Oil had experimental Concept Car ads of cars that were being designed. Pretty futuristic for the time...

    Cool cars, concept or not. There were some serious visionaries in design from the 50s -60s

    It would be nice to see what powerplant is under the hood.
