I have to admit to being beyond stumped. I'm guessing it's an Asian retro showcar design (in light of the RHD), but other than that, forget it. Not a particularly pleasing design, especially the front end, IMHO. Kind of looks like a '48 Buick, Hudson, Muntz, Chrysler Thunderbolt, and a Mercedes were tossed in a blender.

You will really be surprised when you find out what it actually is! :mellow:

Looks like this one was too hard! Only 4 people got it right. The car is a 1947-48 Isotta Fraschini 8C Monterosa. It was the end of the line for the Isotta Fraschini make... after this "last gasp" they packed it in as far as cars go.

Who got it right:

Ryan S.

That's all, folks!

Thanks to Mike McElligott for the photo... if this one was too hard you can blame him! :wub:

I have to admit that this is the first Auto ID subjects that I can honestly say I've never...ever...seen before. Nice work stumping the band!

That shocks me Mark! You are usually the bandleader!!:wub:

Man, I was way off! Wouldn't have guessed this at all. I still say it isn't a particularly pleasing design. I guess it's proof that a last gasp can be unpleasant.

I guess it confirms my auto history nerdiness. I knew what it was right away and just looked up the proper name for it. It was a big car and it was rear engined!
