I've read about this car and understand what they were trying to accomplish, but it's still just plain fucking ugly. It makes the Edsel look good.

I get your point, but it would be nice in some retrofuturist movie, no?

And there's ugly and ugly:

Spoiler:
The 1942 Oeuf électrique, or electric egg, had three wheels and ran on batteries decades after gasoline became the dominant way to power cars, and decades before Elon Musk decided to make electricity cool again. Its designer, Parisian Paul Arzens, worked as a painter and designed railway locomotives before moving on to cars. The bubble is made of hand-formed aluminum and curved Plexiglass, a novel material at the time.

That looks like conceptual art, not a "sweet ride".

I'm not convinced it's really drivable.

And for you masculine types (not necessarily hetero of course), that's classic Mopar Hemi. :coolspecs:
Popular among hot-rodders through the 1960s.

Furthermore, pink and white two-tone was a popular option not some sort of fancy custom job. :P
