I suppose its not a mid-engined, 4-door Auto Union Streamliner sedan/wagon then. Although that would be equally insane and awesome.

I'm not giving anything away, only that it will have 3 body styles.

Could you get any more vague please?

That's an interesting car, but I can't say anything. Mid engined 1940s car is a good idea, however.

It'd only work on the open beta though due to the fact that mid engine cannot use the ladder chassis.

Well, you say it has doors, wheels, an engine, and a windshield, but does it have fenders and bumpers?

Please do an Aston Martin style body! :)

And not the Aston Martin Cygnet if you do. :P

I'm just imagining the struggle of trying to make an engine short enough to fit in that body.

I always liked the lagonda, I never understood the hate some people had for it.
Admittedly reliability was a bit low but that about sums up the uk car industry at the time.
They have 5.8l v8 btw

5.3 actually. But the engine pales in comparison to that interior.

The future has arrived... in 1976 :lol:

While I can appreciate the sci-fi design of the interior at the time, I've never been a fan of the Series II Lagonda. The Series I, on the other hand...
