Mystery Car

Did you know that the boiling point of silver is 2,162° Celsius? Fun fact! Today’s Mystery Car is silver, and hopefully it won’t make you boiling mad if you don’t know what it is.

    2000ish Qvale Mangusta, powered by a Ford 32V V8 and a lot of sports car aspiration.

        I’m wrong – door handles don’t match. Just saw dat ass and jumped to conclusion.

        The jerks seem to have put different handle/lock combinations on the Mangusta (whether Qvale or DeTomaso):
        Door handle #1
        Door handle #2

          Welcome to the world of low volume car manufacturing.
          And of course this car ended up, after a Peter Stevens, (McLaren F1 stylist), restyle as the last MG before the Chinese ones, the X-Power SVR with what looks like yet another set of doorhandles, (and Fiat Punto headlights & Fiat Coupe tail-lights). There were more than a few made.

            I’d asked Peter Stevens (thru FB) about the Qvale to MG transformation – said that they weren’t given much budget to move anything around, then management got greedy and priced it way out of it’s league.

      Looks to me like the door handles match. Pictured is a 2001.

      Such an unfortunate looking car.

        Yes, a bit cartoonish. The rear wheelarches make it look like it’s been rear-ended. Even a girl in a skimpy bikini can’t help this thing.

        Sir, I disagree. Like the poor wee girl posted above who apparently can’t afford trousers or a chair to sit on, the Mangusta is stubby but damn hawt.

    I find it very amusing that the Mangusta was based quite heavily on a vehicle that has the same letters. aMustang…

    Even if the Qvale Mangusta was the correct answer, I’m still going to say Zimmer Quicksilver just for the weak tie-in to the lead text.

      That’s weird.

      The last thing you’d expect to find propping up a Quicksilver from underneath is a Fiero.
      But there it is.

    Judging by the silence from Emsliesphinx, the hunt continues.
    How about Maserati 228?

      Sometimes he doesn’t reply. Like he might not be bothered?

        The joy is in the hunt, not the kill.
