This prototype car was built by Giorgetto Giugiaro while working for Bertone, a high end Italian car maker. The story behind this car, reported from The Truth About Cars is that Bill Mitchell at GM Styling sent over two Corvair chassis over to Italy to have a competition to develop a car for the European markets. Well that never came to fruition, but this single car was made in the Bertone office by Giugiaro.
Now that’s one cool turtle.
