BMW-Glas 3000 V8 Fastback, 1967, by Frua. BMW took over rival German manufacturer Glas in 1966 and initially rebadged their cars BMW-Glas. Pietro Frua sensed an opportunity and presented a rebodied Glas 3000 Coupe but BMW were more interested in developing their own E9 (3.0CS) coupé so Frua’s version remained a one-off though it was presented a number of times at European motor shows in a variety of colours

Faces Do Matter

Some say that the face is all that matters. I can’t stop thinking about that famous phrase whenever I stare at an Alpine. Whether you think its front is too cluttered or uniquely perfect, it most definitely has an interesting face to say the least.

The Delorean wasn’t the only Renault powered sports car with the engine stuffed in a not so conventional place. This alpine is rear engine’d, and besides you gotta love that shade of teal.
