Huh. That's rather interesting. Strange, though, that the driver seems to be in about the middle of the car, a hell of a long way away from the windshield, and no way in hell he can see where the nose ends.
Anyway, it looks very Honda'ish in the nose and tail, but I doubt they'd be so bold in the styling overall. Hmmm... maybe something Korean...

Give you all a hint... bigger than a Fit, smaller than the Crosstour, and will be placed in the lineup right between them. It along with the CR-V will be getting the all new Diesel engine coming to the States along with the normal 4 cyl.
Estimated price is going to be $18-$24k depending on trim levels.

it is a little goofy, but I am a sucker for small hatchbacks, and for some reason I kind of like it.
With the right powertrain (such as that diesel) it could really be interesting.

well, to close this one out.
it is a 1970 "Mercury cyclone spoiler II long nose" Basically the Mercury version of the torino Cobra (Ford's reaction to the Superbird for NASCAR).
and back in the days when cars had real names!
