It's the Rolls-Royce of Bentley websites.

Practice Makes Perfect?

The controversial Rolls-Royce Camargue designed by Pinninfarina and was release in 1975.

In fact it was designed in 1970 at Pininfarina not by Sergio, but by Paolo Martin. These are his actual design sketches.

And also his renderings dated 1970.

It is a car that I, personally, really like, and spotted many in the 1980's here with this as an example.

It does seem however, that Paolo Martin at Pininfarina did a bit of a University standard, and handed in the same assignment for multiple classes, with just a little tweeking, to try and confuse the professors.

Let's take a look at the 1969 Fiat 130 coupe.

And the 1976 Ferrari 365GT 2+2 / 400GT.

Get the picture?

Now also there is a lesser known example, it must have been a minor class at University or some detention homework for re-submitting his work multiple times.

It is a 1969 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3.

Only one was made.

I hope Rolls-Royce got a good deal on an updated old design.

Ferrari definitely got the left overs in 1976.
