I remember seeing this years ago. I'm sorry i don't remember what it is.

All I can say at this point is I really like it.

Yeah it's a beautiful car. There is a Hot Wheels of it. I wish there was a 1/24 kit.

Now this I really like! Looks like a stretched Ferrari/Jaguar.

If you're gonna rob a bank, make it Fort Knox!

I like the deep offset wheels and the white stripe tires - must be from the 60s. 

Should be posted as Wild Things 4, instead of those other "freak cars"

Cool car - stupid name. Should have come up with something more becoming of the car, intead of promoting his name.

I'm not a fan of the Thomassima III styling, but I think the Thomassima II (below) is a beautiful car. Much more pleasing lines.

I agree, although it's easy to see where the Thomassima II found its inspiration:

Yep, right down to the vent slots in the body work. Ferrari definitely did it better. The Thomassima is actually built from discarded and scrounged Ferrari bits (and some Maserati and Cooper bits as well) and bespoke body work, but was badged a Thomassima. The one off Thomassima II was built to order for a customer. Thomas was put out when, upon taking delivery of the car, the customer replaced the Thomassima badges with Ferrari badges. The customer referred to the car as a Ferrari P4/250, a model which didn't exist.
