Eagle Premier... An ItalDesign car. That was the continuance of the
pre-aero 44 chassis. I liked that clean design style. Yes, I did have an
83 5000s once.

Giugiaro designed a car called the Marlin. The date on the image is 84,
post-44 intro, but this thing looks like the aero 5000/100. It has the
grill of the old passat, but it has the same proportions.
He must have seen the 5000 and saw that was the future and reverse
designed it.
