    I'm pretty sure that it was a joke about Autobello being a direct Italian translation of "Nice Car"

    Why is "nice" a hyperlink that leads to a search result for "nice on Google maps??

    I had some time tonight, so I caught up on these:

    As expected, blackwalls significantly change the car's apparent proportions.

    Meanwhile, it becomes clear exactly where the panel gaps are on this thing. The border between the blue side panel and the yellow roof is the only line that does not denote a panel gap. I am assuming that there's a body weld joining the roof to the rest of the unibody along that line.

    I believe the rear fender is not a separate panel. It's just flared a bit.


    Manufacturers often used to conceal welding joints where roof and side panels would meet with the application of drip mouldings, so I believe you are right on this one.

    So did I, until I looked more closely at the original photo. There appears to be a panel gap there.

    Looks like a (sharp) crease to me, not a gap. Normal-mapped, likely just to allow for Abarth-like overfenders/fender flares:



    And if it's actually a separate panel... it would be the first production car ever to have separate rear fenders and flush front fenders (ok, there's the 1st gen Smart Fortwo...), which would kinda match some of the logic-defying design choices of the fictional car...

    - Predicted size and engine capacity vs. market positioning (it's rumored to be a 1.1 - 1.2L, around 3.8 - 4.0m long... at the time these were certainly not "affordable" family car specs).
    - Equipment shown vs. era (at the time, sideview mirrors on both sides were uncommon even on luxury cars... cars this size usually came with no mirrors at all).
    - The car is italian but so far was always shown with german-spec details (optics, oval rear plate holder).

    Pointing out some inconsistencies doesn't imply I don't like what they are doing.

    • 3.8-4.0m is almost exactly the size of a VW Beetle, which is known for being affordable.
    • The engine options are very similar to the Beetle.
    • You can make your own configs without both mirrors if you want.
    • How are the "optics" and "oval rear plate holder" German?

    Then how were the passengers able to see behind them? :p

    Was it not law back then to have at least one mirror?
