Unknown Concept Car

TTAC commenter gimmiemanual writes:

I was living in China in late 2009, and decided to take scuba classes so I could dive the Great Barrier Reef.

My open water course was done in Qiandao Lake, outside of Shanghai, and this picture was on the wall of my (terrible) local hotel room.

I offered to buy it for what everyone with me considered a ridiculous amount, but the owner absolutely refused to sell it to me. I’ve lazily looked through the internet, but have been unable to figure out what it is.

There’s a 1980s “Red Barchetta”/Hot Wheels vibe emanating from this car and the Ringwaldian model splayed across its hood. Those headlights almost look to be from a later Aston Martin, but I can’t tell.

Best and Brightest: What the heck is this … thing?
