AFS Trinity Recycles Stillborn Bugatti?

Stopped by to have a look at the AFS Trinity exhibit about their PHEV conversions and technology (see my previous entry here)

Lo and behold another one of their show cars is (I believe) intended to hint at their own design. But not so. Take a look and you’ll see it’s a disguised prototype Bugatti EB112 from circa 1993-1994. Different headlights, wheels, hood, grill, and rear window but it leaves little doubt that it’s the same car.







See the Bugatti EB112 pics here and decide for yourself:

  • It also has different doors, fenders, and bumpers. Close, but no Bugatti. The unfortunate resemblance is striking though.

  • It looks close to the Bugatti EB112 but I am not so sure that this is based on that car.

    A comparison of their profils point out a lot of differences and not only on cosmetic aspects.

    The lenghts are clearly very different, front and rear parts are shorter compared to the EB112.
    front doors are far shorter too.
    the windscreen are not the same, the one on the Bugatti is bigger.
    Inside the dashboard looks typical from a US car and I think this car is made on a US car and not on a Bugatti prototyp.
    I am looing to find on which US car is based this showcar.
