I was poking around the European Patent/Trademark database (nothing new on Honda front, it seems) and came across this beast.

It's listed under a Toyota design patent (Design # 005632619-0001). WTF could this be?

If the back was the front it would have excellent proportions. I am not sure if this thing is coming or going.

I'm guessing some kind of electric or hybrid vehicle...since it's so hideous.

I was thinking the same thing, but:

1) why spoil a lovely MR aesthetic with this godawful design
2) where are the cooling intake vents?

1) It's Toyota we're discussing here, they are even probably in front of Honda when it comes to irrational design.

2) If it's electikity based, would it need that much cooling??

looks like the designer got lazy and said screw this I'll just flip the front to the rear and call it a day.

Something that Dr. Ferdinand is screaming, "NOOOOOO, you attempted to copy me to an extent and did it all wrong."

Perhaps they only wanted to patent a few parts of the car, like the design of the front section and didn't care for the rest.

Now you are insulting me.

Not even the Mirai is this ugly.

The Clarity is just Citroenesque.

Certainly similar, but it begs the question "why and what for"??

Not for SuperGT, because they are going FR in chassis layout, let alone the PU requirements. It could only be what we call in Australian racing a Sports Sedan, basically a no hods barred category where designers can experiment to their hearts desire. Hence we have Chevy V8 powered Preludes, and Alfettas. They may look "different", but they sure do sound awesome and go stupidly fast..........
