Spent several hours looking. Found a load of cool looking cars. Didn't find this one though.

I have seen it before but can't remember exactly where. It looks to be partly inspired by the Phantom Corsair with maybe a gull wing Mercedes greenhouse attached. It is very cool regardless.

Once again can't wait to see what the answer is, there's a few clues but they all seem to point in different directions. It looks extremely big, to judge by the 'stang next to it!

The car in the picture is the 1948 version, after Louis Fageol bought the original car and turned it into the "Supersonic."

Thanks for the clarification - now I know what it is I see that the original didn't have the futurist bumper, headlights or cabin, and it all makes perfect sense. I enjoyed the search even though I didn't get there!

I love the LSR version, I had never seen that before. As for the supersonic, not so much. Too sad so bad.

How come the 'Stang is on the right in the B&W photo but on the left in the colour photo (looks like a reversal of the original image) yet the SuperSonic steering wheel is on the right in both pictures?

The picture I got from the video was inverted when posted to Photoshop. When realized that I "fixed" the Super Sonic steering wheel. See? Magic!!
