NSU Ro80. weird or wonderful?

I can never really decide.  The design of the NSU Ro80 always leaves me feeling weird….on one side, i find its proportions to be utterly fascinating and awkward (in a good way)…..on the other side, i find it to be very dysfunctional and awkward (in a bad way).

There is no denying, however, that the Ro80 was WAY ahead when it came to design….considering it was originally launched in 1967 (wow).  A very modern design….which surely influenced alot of cars after it….especially AUDI, the company that some of NSU warped into…

    http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/Community/Car-Magazines-Blogs/Glen-Waddington-blog/RO80/

    i have no opinion on this car otherwise, aside from the fact that it hasn’t captured my imagination…. yet.
