BMW 700 from mid 1960's, I think. Odd looking, to my eye. However more conventional than its predecessor bubble car.
I think they were raced or hill climbed or similar. Somewhere in the back of my mind I recall something about Hans Stuck (1950's GP driver and father of Hans Joachim Stuck) driving one.

Yup, that's a '65 BMW 700 Luxus. Oh yes they were raced, rallied and hillclimbed extensively.

Could that be the world's most flexible platform?
It's the basis for the Elise, Exige, race cars, Tesla EVs, and now the world's fastest car.
Colin Chapman is smiling, somewhere.
