RE: Need pics of prototype Audis/spy photos of Audis
Was built in 1973. Looks like a very smoothed out Lancia Scorpion.
Here is the write-up.
The key feature of this Bertone design is stated in its name: Trapeze. This
is, trapezium shape-not body, but the seat arrangement. For Passenger
comfort, the 2 front seats were very close together, while the rear seats were
placed far apart-against the cars side-with the engine housing lying between.
This arrangement flew in the face of most mid-engine designs that typically
incorporated barely enough room for 2 small dogs. But in the Trapeze the rear
occupants could stretch out their legs, thus allowing a car within a rather
short wheelbase. The rear track measured seven inches wider than the front
track because of the interior seat arrangement. The rounded front windshield,
six headlights, and the color-purple inside and out- gave the trapeze a bit
