1970 Volkswagen 1600 SS by Francis Lombardi

This wedge-shaped coupe built on Volkswagen units was presented at the 1970 Turin Motor Show. The design features can be noted: a safety arc integrated into the body, opening headlights, and a fuel filler cap extended outward in front of the windshield. It was a seat sports car based on the Beetle platform with a rear-mounted 85hp flat four-cylinder engine.
