Does Luigi Colani deserve a thread here?
I should say so!
He designed some extraordinary cars and trucks.
Let's dig up some pics.

Ferrari 365 GTB 'Daytona' by Colani.
As a Ferrari-lover, I have only one thing to say: TERRIBLE.
I don't know if this car still exists, but if it does, I sure hope it has been restored without these Colani modifications!! Really, when I first saw this picture, I felt sick, slowly became very angry and barely managed to keep myself out of a serious depression...

Well... I was about to say many things, but I'd like to keep this forum friendly and happy. ;)
I'd like to return the question. What happens to YOU if you look at it?

Another interesting device, this life-size model of a two-part hybrid car. The engine and cam shaft are taken from a Lamborghini Miura (!!), the separate passenger cabin is designed like the cockpit of a glider. Built in 1970.

This creature is named Horch.
It makes me think of that car used in 'The league of extraordinary gentlemen'.

I think the VW-based 'GT' was his first effort in motor manufacture.

I think he has a big hubris.
There are not many of the design scene who take him seriousely. Frequently he used to promote his 'visionary' design concepts in German talk shows. A real pain in the a..! :roll:

I find Luigi Colani one of the most fascinating and versatile industrial designers in our time , he really thinks outside the box, literally...

his vehicle designs has been matter of discussion for ages but whatever they look, put them in a wind tunnel and find out that he has been light years ahead in aerodynamics, and that with remodelling his designs throughout testing, he gets there on the first pencil draw.

A motorcycle streamliner for speed record driver Don vesco.
