Wish he did a 242 or a wagon instead! That thing is wicked cool, though.

Hell, make it mid-engine while you are at it. No since wasting that back seat space!

Man, I love the idea of a Group 5-style 242, but this got hit by the "scene" stick hard.

Can't say I'm a fan of the reverse dished wheels he put on it. I Like the over fender flares and the diffuser out back.

I love this in the same way I love Rusty Slammington. Completely ridiculous concept, pushed probably too far. But I love it.

All Bertones are hideous and designed for kinky weirdos/similar to a free candy van inside, to be fair.

thats what I thought too.. lets make it 6 inches below the roof, rear bars that should be tied together, weird hump between front and rear side bars....


Is it me or are the roof pillars more skinny for "better" looks?

hood pins in the middle of the hood

You're right. The C-pillar is about 3-4 inches narrower than a rear 240 pillar. All three are narrower than the real deal. The trunk lid is about 4-5 inches shorter than the real deal as well. Artistic license.
