Strange juxtaposition of Humber sceptre and Lancia Fulvia coupe.

I love the generic front wing shape with the headlamp in the wrong place.

Definitely Brits trying to do Italian.



And failing. The front is minging.

Thanks for the medical update.

I quite like that Aston.

Less keen on the Sunbeam.

Indeed. Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera sounds distinctly Midlands doesn't it? I think Milano is near Corby.

From the back it looks great but the front is too much Rootes and not enough Touring. Interesting but not quite cool.

not sure. Looks like more commitment was given to naming it, possibly to make up for the lack of commitment given to styling it. Interesting, but I'm struggling to call it cool.

I like it all except that front. Is it though?

Kinda like the Humber in a strange retro way. I could happily have that side-by-side with the Alfa.

Didn't know of this car. So hats off for the editor.

Enthusiasts have actually made a web page for it: Sunbeam Venezia Touring Superleggera

But, personally, I think the front is bl... awful. Strange e.g. they chose not to put the direction indicator lamps into the pointy top of the wings, like in the Hilman Super Minx.

front end ruins the appearance for me, sadly uncool because the rest of the car is very good
