It's a pity if discarded, the weirdest car ever made

Here's one for the hometown crowd, from Switzerland's own Sbarro. This boutique automaker's latest work is an SUV it calls the Sbarro 4×4+2 — presumably — for that third pair of wheels that retract up into the bodywork but don't appear to actually extend far enough down to touch the ground.

Indeed, Sbarro has a history of questionable and weird design decisions (for example, 2010 Sbarro Autobau, etc.) And now, with its spare tires stored in the middle of the car, a bizarre lack of windows, holes in the doors and a grille resembling three stacked katana swords, the Sbarro 4x4+2 Concept Car's design is as confusing as its name.

What is meant by 4×4+2? The thing we commonly know so far is a passenger seat like 5+2 or 2+2 in a Coupe. What Sbarro has to offer is quite unique and insane if don't want to be considered eccentric. Well, are you curious about these Sbarro 4×4+2?

First of all, let's discuss how this car looks, to be honest we say this car is ugly. First, the front design is unclear, relying on the bumper style - an intercity truck style but sprinkled with chrome, even with a bonnet, high towering with strange shaped hoods.

On the side, there're hollowed doors with small glass mounted on all sides so that it makes the car look uncomfortable to ride. Not only that, the spheres on the sides where the third pair of tires are mounted also very strange. Continue to the back, just similar to the front. Okay, if it intended for the show car, all this weirdness still can be tolerated.

The thing that might be positive if we want to look for is the spare tires mechanism in the middle that can downward if needed. But wait a minute, is it really needed? Why is it put in there? Why not just like the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen which is placed more backward.

If indeed this is made for an offroad purposed, we don't feel will make it run faster, even though the 5,000 cc engine is quite promising with the power up to 550 PS, we still don't believe it.
Maybe there are too many negative things on this car, but the fact is this car was built from the first generation of Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. And at the end, what do you think? *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MONEYWISE | AUTOFOCUS | CARSCOOPS]
