Pontiac Aztec As one of the least attractive new cars ever put into production, it may go down in history, but Italdesign Aztec certainly won't. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro At the 1988 Turin Auto Show, the Aztecs were low-profile double-top sports cars that looked different from the world Blade Runner.
After its debut, a Japanese company tried to make the Italdesign concept a reality, because who would refuse the opportunity to own a car as striking as Aztec? There are obviously many people, as only half of the 50 Aztecs planned to be produced in the Japanese and European markets were built, and at the time of writing, one was for sale. Bring trailer.
This particular Aztec vehicle entered the United States in 2015 and is reported to meet the requirements of the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Transportation. Prior to entering the U.S. market, the car was said to have been exhibited at the Shanghai Automobile Museum in China since 2011.
Despite its futuristic appearance, the Aztec powertrain is quite traditional. Power comes from one Audi-Provided a mid-mounted turbocharged 2.2-liter five-cylinder engine that produces 247 horsepower [ignoring what is shown on the side panel because these are metric and not mechanical horsepower], the car routes it to all four wheels through a five-speed manual transmission Gearbox. In addition, it has pop-up headlights, adding a touch of retro coolness.
The Aztec's double canopy design provides a separate look for the driver and passenger compartment, while the cockpit of the car is actually equipped with an open center console that can be used by everyone. It contains some of the most technologically advanced in-car audio equipment of the time: the JVC audio system, with a built-in CD player and cassette tapes. Also note that the electronic timer installed inside works very well.
About 250 miles from the odometer, this Aztec is indeed a time capsule from different times. Given the rarity of the model, its extraordinary style, and its seemingly minty state, it is also expected to be sold at a high price.
