Mystery Car


With meteors crashing to Earth, a maniac former cop showdown in Southern California, and the confirmation that jet-propelled squid have now taken to the air, it’s been a rock ’em sock ’em week. Considering all that’s gone down in the past seven days, it’s nice to be able to take a moment to stop and smell the roses, or at the very least, solve the weekly Mystery Car.

So, get yourself a cup of chamomile tea, don a comfy sweater, and put on your thinking cap, so you can enjoy the soul enriching contest that is the weekly Mystery Car. Not to harsh your mellow, but to achieve Mystery Car nirvana, you will need to come up with the make, model, year or range, and likely engine under it’s mysterious hood. And remember – deep cleansing breaths.

    I don't know what it is, but it must be spectacularly ugly.

    I thought it might be a three-wheeler and found this:

    It doesn't answer the question but it does need to be seen.

      Then it needs to be unseen.

      I was thinking the same thing, but something is not right…

    I'm thinking a Ghia show car from the 80's, but Google is failing me. I did find this bit of awesomeness:

    1994 Saturn SL2, 1.9L DOHC 4-Cylinder?

    I can't hazard a guess beyond it's a compact SUV from China, South America, India or a former Soviet bloc country.
    …Probably some sort of prototype or concept car modernization of a UAZ or Mahindra.
    [EDIT: Couldn't have been more wrong…]

    At first I thought it was a Citroën XM, but it isn't. Then I thought Subaru SVX, but that isn't it either…

    The Jensen One! From 1992! It has a Citroen V6!

    Note: It's basically a Citroen XM with silly wheel covers and (judging by the video below) possibly ghosts.

        From the early 90s, when businesses had fax numbers, not email addresses.

      I now very much want a Citroen XM with silly wheel covers.

        I give partial credit to LTDScott, whose post made me think "maybe there was some sort of rejected XM prototype" that lead me down the path that found this.

      BWAHAHAHAHA!!! I had completely forgotten that ridiculous thing.

    Shit. I spent hours looking for what I thought was an enormous, bizarre wraparound sidelight. Oops…just a reflection.
