I got the TSM version of the Aston but the Ixo looks just as good at about a third of the price. :?

Very cool wedge design :) From wikipedia this car seems to be introduced in 1968, must've looked very futuristic back then!

Dcast: You are right. Carabo on the Bertone Stand at the London Earls Court Motor Show lives in my memory even now! The bronzed glass on the 1:1 was the icing on the cake. The opacity/transparency of the bronzed glass is very dependent on the ambient light levels and how close you are to the car. I've seen the car again twice in daylight. Both times at Goodwood FoS. 2010 was one occasion when Alfa were celebrating their Centenary and a load of concepts from the Alfa Museum were on loan and on show that weekend. Unforgettable!

A Carabo model is always nice to have. One of my all time favourites, even when it is a design from before I was born. I have both the Spark and this one. I must say, prefer the Spark. Which back then cost me about a third of this one. Beware of the huge box when it arrives!

First thought was Likening to Mazda Rx500. Wonders if Toyo Kogyo were inspired by this, as 2 years later their own wedge concept was released.
Nice add and top colour to boot!!
