Wouldn't everyone want one of these ?


The Tucker Torpedo is one of the great what-if stories of automotive history. Preston Tucker hoped to revolutionize the industry with a car unlike any other on the road at the time.

However, due to a variety of problems, he only managed build 51 vehicles before closing shop.

Don't know who bought the Lotus but this collector does collect Yank tanks, so maybe. This guy would be pushing 80 I would say, so doubt the Lotus would suit his taste.

The Lotus buyer is 47 according to his d/l.
