Known to strange individuals as "The Goddess." Obviously this was the Goddess of people with vision defects. For some bizarre reason many people seem to think that this car is a design classic. We think not. It's as attractive as a slug-filled croissant.
When the Habitat designer submitted his latest teapot design to Ford as an April fool's joke, little did he know that by an administrative error it would end up on the road.
This used to be the preferred transport for teachers, eco-warriors, weird-beards and people who don't wash their hair. The 2Cv was modelled on a boating accident that occurred in Cherbourg in 1923.
This vile beast was one of a string of Austin/British Leyland uglies. If you were lucky you could get the stylish Vanden Plas version with chrome radiator grille and walnut veneer fascia. If you were even luckier you could have had the version with the square steering wheel!
The Citroen Ami 8 is to automotive design what Yasser Arafat is to glamour modelling. However, it is nothing that four sticks of dynamite and a match wouldn't fix.
The Reliant Robin - or "Robin Reliant" as some backward-thinking people call it. This mirth-inducing novelty was also known as "The Plastic Pig" - I'd rather have a bag of pork scratchings thanks. (oh, and the Regal was even worse!)
This wedge shaped monster had "hydragas" suspension. Pity that it looked best in the hydro-pneumatic jaws of a crushing machine. Later re-born as the Ambassador, but should have been aborted.
Ssangyong described this thing as having a "dolphin-type aerodynamic shape" - can you see the resemblance? We think that "pregnant haddock on a bike" is probably a closer match.
Designed in the former Czechoslovakia by Pavel Placenta, a biscuit factory worker from Prague. A country that has a reputation for making the best beer in the world also managed to produce some of the worst cars in the world. Hmmn...I wonder if there's a connection?
This little coupe probably could have looked quite nice - except the designer allowed his pet antelope to design the back of it.
