We’ve partnered with Love My Classic to offer one reader the chance to win a year’s classic car insurance* on us! The competition closes on midnight 12th July and for more info, and to enter, click here. We’ve also been tasked by Love My Classic to pick our ‘wackiest car’ of the 50s so here it is!
Designed by Lincoln in 1955 and built in Turin by the Italian Coachbuilders ‘GHIA’, the Futura was ahead of its time, with glass canopies and a pearlescent paint treatment. It cost £250,000 to build, which in today’s money equates to approximately £2,000,000. Whilst you make not recognise it from the picture above, it was modified in 1966 by famed movie car designer, George Barras, in to what you see below, which is instantly more recognisable.
