    Here's one to deliberately mislead. When you think you know what it is, think outside the box.

    Who would have thought Citroen would have come up with something like that. It looks very nice from the side.

    Looks very much like the latest Chrysler 300. Nice enough but lacks the thuggish menace of the previous model.

    Very similar to the Caddy CTS in profile, but with different headlight and tailight outlines.

    Perhaps VN's point is that the Americans accidentally designed a contemporary car that isn't completely hideous.

    Stranger still they managed to get it into production without some marketing focus group fucking it up.

    Yes, it does seem to be a Lancia Thema. A rebadged Chrysler for the Italian market.

    Give Johpam a cigar.

    The clue like the Citroen was in the wheel centres. That and Chrysler is owned by FIAT.

    Here is a racing version of the 300.




    and one with a Cadillac

    Gandini signature wheel arches and a lambo -esque look got me searching as far as the P132 early prototype for the Countach replacement.
    I only stumbled on the Cizeta Moroder V16T from there...

    Well done Bob. Yes, the Lamborghini styling was the route to follow.

    For those who want to know a bit more, this car is illegal not just to drive but even to own in the US. Given the company is based in California it may complicate things for them a little on the sales front.

    Here's an article on one that was imported into the US on a temporary basis for repairs. Six years later and Uncle Sam decided enough was enough so seized it:

    Seizure of Rare Supercar Raises More Questions
    By RICHARD S. CHANG DECEMBER 10, 2009



    United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement The Cizeta V16T being taken away by federal customs agents.

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement seized on Monday a 1994 Cizeta V16T, a rare supercar with fewer than a dozen in existence that is not legal to drive or own in the United States.

    According to an affidavit provided for the seizure warrant, the car was imported on Feb. 17, 2001, on a one-year bond to have mechanical work done. While the car was never sold in the United States, the founder and owner of Cizeta, Claudio Zampolli, lives in California. Last month, the agency learned that the Cizeta V16T was still in the country, stored in a warehouse in Fountain Valley, Calif. Operating on a tip from an investigator at the California Air Resources Board, ICE agents found the car at a classic car showroom in nearby San Juan Capistrano, where, on Monday, they seized the car.

    “Make no mistake, the illegal importation of gray market vehicles like this is not just a technical violation,” Miguel Unzueta, a special agent in charge of the Los Angeles office, said in a statement. “Cars that don’t meet U.S. standards are outlawed for a reason. These vehicles can pose a real threat to public health and safety.”

    A Google search of the Fountain Valley address on the affidavit turned up a listing and phone number for Cizeta Automobili USA.

    When reached, Claudio Zampolli had no comment. “I’m not in the mood to say anything,” he said. “Call back in a week.”

    He did say, however, that Cizeta never went out of business and that he has been working on other models.

    The Cizeta V16T has an interesting history — even by supercar standards. The company was the brainchild of Mr. Zampolli, an auto engineer, and Giorgio Moroder, one of the most accomplished music producers and composers since the 1980s. Mr. Moroder, who by some accounts was more of an investor than a hands-on partner, worked with Donna Summer and scored several movies, including “Scarface” and “Midnight Express,” for which he won an Academy Award.

    The supercar was introduced in 1988 by Cizeta-Moroder, as the company was then called. It was designed by Marcello Gandini, the famous Italian designer who had also styled the Lancia Stratos, Bugatti EB110 and the Lamborghini Miura. Like Gandini’s other creations, the Cizeta V16T was a sleek, low wedge. There were pop-up headlights and side strakes. Another Lamborghini, the Diablo, so closely resembled the Cizeta V16T that, according to John Lamm in his book “Velocity: Supercar Revolution,” there are stories that the Cizeta was originally meant to be the new Countach.

    The car went on sale in 1991. Its 16-cylinder engine was made up of two V-8s mounted on a single block and rated at more than 500 horsepower, and Cizeta said the car could go from zero to 60 miles per hour in around four seconds. Top speed: about 200 miles per hour, which was a big deal at the time, and the $600,000 price tag reflected it.

    Only eight examples of the Cizeta V16T were made before the company ended initial production. Three more were built later, including a Spyder version that was unveiled at the Concorso Italiano in Monterey, Calif., in 2003. The company’s Web site says it is still taking orders for the car. Some time before then, Mr. Moroder’s name was taken off the company.

    But according to customs agents, the car was never approved to be driven in the United States. It does not meet Environmental Protection Agency and Transportation Department regulations on emissions and safety, said an ICE investigator, who could not be identified because of agency rules. The value of the car upon entry into the country in 2001 was stated at $125,000 — well below it’s retail price.

    For a car that was not legal to drive, this particular Cizeta did not lead a secretive lifestyle. The car had been seen in photos and videos at Cars and Coffee, a regular gathering of exotic and classic cars in Irvine, Calif. The car was seized from the showroom of Family Classic Cars in San Juan Capistrano, where it had just been displayed in a car show the Friday prior to its seizure.

    The agency has 60 days to locate and notify the owner of the car. According to the investigator, ICE has identified a possible owner in Austria — Mr. Decillis is the only information it has at the time — but has not been able to make contact with him or his lawyer. The investigator also said the agency was also looking into the possibility of the car being stolen.
