    Looks remarkably like the car built for the first Captain America movie https://www.topgear.com/car-news/cap...rica-v16-coupe

    Adolph Hitler was driven around in a 6-wheel Mercedes-Benz W-31 car on occasion.

    Perhaps this is from where they got the inspiration?

    Oh, that League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.....yes car referred to had 4 steering tires. Anything goes when it comes to movies, probably CGI anyway.

    The real League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, I'm sure their cars all steer via 2 front wheels.
    Unless one of us posts they've modded otherwise.

    Sweet resto-mod. Does it close up, or is it always open and alternately "cooled"
