Built in collaboration with famed Italian design house and coachbuilder Carrozzeria Ghia, the Quicksilver was somewhere between a stretched hatchback and a station wagon. It had a ridiculously long wheelbase and low, teardrop-shaped roofline that was designed to minimize drag, and seated five passengers.
The car wasn’t just a showpiece – it actually was built to be driveable. Oddly enough, its chassis came from a mid-engined two-door sports coupe known as the AC 3000ME, stretched like a limousine by about 11 inches. Its Ford-sourced 2.8-liter Cologne V6 engine sits transversely behind the second row of seats, which I imagine significantly reduced rear cargo capacity. On the other hand, its frunk offered plenty of space up front.
