The roof of the Karin was only the size of an A3 sheet of paper due to its truncated pyramid shape.
One of the Karin’s unique features was it’s three-seat layout with the driver located between the two passengers.
The car had a 4-cylinder engine, front wheel drive mechanism, and a hydropneumatic suspension like the Citroën DS.
This car design seems oddly futuristic even now, but surprisingly such aesthetics were neglected after the 80’s. It is said that in Fiore’s vision this was the GT for the year 2000.
While clearly a product of the past, it’s style and techno-savvy interior are still considered superb.
Just look at it, seems like something straight out of Star Wars!
