    Looks like something out of "The Fifth Element" or some SF Anime .... Sbarro has a long history of making 'out there' cars...https://www.google.com/search?q=Sbar..._6dN1Yh8JkwdQM

    I bet you could take a diamond wire saw and cut off everything forward of the windshield and not impact the function of that vehicle at all. Just four feet of fibreglass, bondo and two headlights.

    Thinking it is a much slicker version of some of the cars from the original Deathrace 2000.

    Oh, my! I looked up "bling" in the dictionary, and it had a picture of that car right next to it! But to show how far just 10 years have brought us, Koenigsegg has a new 2-liter, 3-cylinder engine that puts out over 600 horsepower and around 440 lb-ft of torque. And it doesn't even have a cam; it uses them newfangled computators to open and close the valves. I'm guessing the sunshine-colored terror, above, has got the Ferrari 5.7-liter, 12-cylinder they used in the Superamerica. It put out a little over 500 horsepower and around 425 lb-ft of Torque, so almost as much as an engine with about 1/3rd its displacement and nine fewer cylinders.
