Same here.
The rear portion looks a bit like a Reliant Scimitar without glasses.

Hey Rehaan,

I think you're thinking of the Lotus Europa now!

Sure is horrendous next to the sublime 250 GTO. It's actually a Ferrari 250 GT Drogo, initially an uprated 250 GT SWB to GTO specs designed by Bizzarrini.

The rear of the breadvan was famous for having the Kammback which is essentially a flat rear end.

Kammback was a theory developed by a German who said that the flat rear end would increase rear downforce.

One other notable car to have a Kammback is the early Ford GT40.
