Mercedes, it's a car for today if you have very deep pockets.

Raymond Loewy, a very sucessful and well known industrial designer (he did much beautiful work, from steam locomotives to pencil sharpeners) is widely credited with the design of the Avanti, as well as the other groundbreaking Studebaker, the 1953-4 Starlight / Starliner.
There have been several slippery Avantis built for Bonneville, which makes an interesting basis for a model. There were also some Stude-built supercharged cars.
The AMT kit has opening doors, and some elements of the interior are somewhat under-scaled.

Another interesting thing here is that if you want to do a full-detail Lark from the old Johan kit, the AMT Avanti chassis makes a good donor.
Man, this has me wanting to add a couple of Studebakers to my to-do list,
