Mystery Car

This car took the prize for being the most interesting vehicle I saw on a day trip to Mulhouse. 

I expect the ink won’t be dry before someone can identify it. Still… what is it?  I don’t mean the red car.

  1. Hi Richard,

    I stumbled across your website when looking at Google images for an obscure car a few weeks ago (can’t remember what, exactly). Since then, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading through the archive. It’s rare to find such thoughtful and well written pieces on matters automotive. I really appreciate the pieces on design matters, particularly in they way they explain why a design is pleasing or otherwise. It’s nice to find others who are equaly fascinated with the detail of automotive design. (For example, every time I see a picture of the Laguna 3, the positioning of the door handles relative to the bodyside crease makes me feel positively queasy!)

    Couldn’t agree more that Bruno is a hero and Gorden (sic) a villain!

    Keep up the great work!

    Best regards,


    1. Thanks for the kind words regarding the site Daniel. Very pleased you’re enjoying it…

  2. I forgot to add that I’ve just discovered you and am really impressed with the first reading I’ve done. We are short of good motoring journalism so a huge thanks and best wishes.

    1. Thank you indeed, John. It’s quite a car to behold and astonishing that they are so rare given how many were produced. The sporty TXE (?) model is unutterably cool, a much over-used word, I know.
