@ Mental: Now that you mention it, it does kind or remind me of an MGB.

Monte Carlo, BR2 has shown, is a very impressive car! Not just it looks gorgeous (someway I see here a combination of the Enzo and Zonda), has a very pleasing interior, but it is also extraordinary by its technology. I like that idea of the "hydrogas" engine, I believe it is the future of hybrids. And the power output of 500 is not bad, not too high though, but still. The only problem, they're planning to manufacture only just 15 units with a price tag of $660k, which is definitely overpriced.

That's a cool old Fiat! Nice wooden interior; lots of pleasure driving these things. And its 4-cyl engine has no modern competition in terms of sound... BTW, Does anybody see MGB Roadster body elements in here? :)

Shame, Fiat does not anything like these anymore.

That Interior is from the MCA Rascasse, The companys owner Fulvio Ballabio is a Racing Driver and an Off Shore Boat Racer(Hence the boat like interior) it uses a 5.4L Bmw V12 engine that runs on normal petrol or Hydrogen enriched LPG, All for 400k, Transmission?...I have no idea...

@ Super8: I see the shifter, I'm guessing below the center console as usual.

@ Shaggy: I wonder where's the gearbox.

Nice wooden panel. Somehow it looked like a wooden boat interior.

If you get a car like that, I hope you don't get termites.

I agree about wood interiors. That was a major reason I got into Jaguars with their nice burled walnut and leather interiors. Something so special about these materials.

Its ok, the cas ok, Although I wouldn't mind all wood interiors to come back, there was something unique about an all wood interior.

This is a U.S. spec 2 liter version of the Fiat 124 Spider, it was upgraded to 2 liters in 1979 and produced by Fiat until 1982 (by Pininfarina after that and finally discontinued in 1985).
