Ok,...WTF is that?
A 6-wheel car?

It really reminds me of the Tyrrell P34 or the Williams FW08.
But:
This car looks ugly.
I can not imagine that it is very fast on track.

The P34 was a succesfull F1 car with a good and new steering concept.
This looks like a kids LEGO-toy.

An absolutely pointless car...(in my opinion)

I saw a video about that car.
I cant imagine that it is able to do fast laptimes.

Oh my freaking Gosh!, What is this? Did the person who designed this car get his idea from a Tyrell or a grasshopper?

@Mental: obviously keeping the two front axles pointing exactly in the same direction is a must and a challenge, but the concept actually works. Has almost twice the directional grip as any other sportscar, so understeer is absolutely absent. It brakes harder than any other too. Its also extremely efficient in keeping it under control if the driver is over ambitious. Biggest disadvantages: cost, complexity, weight, roadnoise, space inefficient and of course its looks.

On youtube there should be a video from a couple of years ago with a driving test of the prototype. Not sure if they delivered to customers (yet). Its from italy i believe.

What a horrible mess! It does remind me a dog with 6 legs! Does this "car" come from Chernobyl?... :D

Technically this idea looks also insane. Huh, I'd see if one of the front wheels pair begin to deflect from another... Hopefully it's at least RWD.

Honestly, is there Any customer of this car in the world?

6 Wheels may give massive good traction. But i doubt small company can set it up propely, its dozens of hours of hard tracks tests.
