The trouble with that particular car (and, indeed, that particular era) is that a lot of models look dishearteningly similar to one another. They seem to share a variety of common elements such as grille shape, headlights, wheels and the overall, uhm, primitive geometry. I think you should give us something slightly more distinctive-looking next time.

Well i choose this because i knew that many people wouldn't be knowing about this car and many of the top guesser would also get confused which was true.But yes next time i shall keep that in mind.

ID:706 is a Lancia Beta HPE. No idea which year though so my guess is mid-70's. The rims are a dead giveaway, by the way.

Default Mac introduces ID:707

As far as I know, ID:707 was a little more than a mere prototype:

It's not a Lancia but, yes, it came out in the mid-60's.

No, the BMW 700 has been posted quite recently. It's not a Michelotti design either.

Well... it wasn't overwhelmingly popular but I definitely wouldn't classify it as obscure either. On top of that, the company isn't unambiguously defunct but the old name hasn't been in use since the 1990's.
