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.
