Click above for a hi-res gallery of the DiMora Scattare

We like big butts, but we cannot lie – there is a limit a to our love. And the vehicle above has crossed over said limit, knocking a few things over with its ghetto booty while it was at it. Right about now, you should be scratching your head (or other parts) and wondering what the heck it is you're looking at, so we'll tell you. It's a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora modified into a sort of coupe-pickup-thing, to be specific. Strictly speaking, behind the driver and passenger it's all trunk, but while we don't generally geek over pickup-car conversions like some other sites on the net (who shall remain nameless), we wonder what the point is here.

The Scattare (Italian for "jump", as in "jump out of the way") is the unfortunate work of DiMora Designs, a division of same company that's been working on the DiMora Motors Natalia SLS 2, a luxury sedan with little more than its $2 million target price tag to show for itself thus far. And while we appreciate the creativity and the apparent craftsmanship on display with the Scattare, please understand if it doesn't exactly fill us with hope for dear Natalia.

DiMora Designs recently began work on modifying another Olds Aurora, this one from 1996. Project Manager Jim Willis says he doesn't plan to change it much, just little tweaks like converting this front-engine car into a mid-engine car. Yikes! Stay tuned – but in the meantime, click on the thumbnails below to jump to the gallery... and don't say we didn't warn you.

      What a way to kill a great car.
        • 5 Years Ago
        No.. wait- what?... lol... I agree... What I mean is the Camino Effect ruins a great car (aurora).

      weird car, but the Olds Aurora looked like a good looking car, they should have kepted it as a Buick when Olds went away.

        I loved my 2001 Aurora =( while it had a decent exterior, i felt it was one of the best GM interiors of its time...Looking at this =/ man im glad mine never looked like that.

      I love it! If Oldsmobile was still around this would probably sell like hotcakes!

      Okay, so I am a bit prejudiced as my dad is an avid Oldsmobile collector having in his garage a Bravada, Aurora, Toronado, Cutlass 442 convertible and now a Vista Cruiser.

      Wow, what an ugly POS. Screw "Scattare" ... the word we have in English for this is "Rice."
        • 5 Years Ago
        Actually, I was thinking Scattire (Scat and Satire). Because this is the crappiest joke I've seen.
        • 5 Years Ago
        The words that came to mind instead of "rice".

        Redneck.

      My favorite part is they added the luggage rack, for those few times when two people have too much luggage...

      WTF?
      • 5 Years Ago
      Just....why?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Wow the dash carpet makes this thing so much sweeter, Wonder if it's a option? Bet the guys with the Bentley's wish they didn't spend the 200g's when they could be driving this high performance machine

      That car looks horrible and it isn't because it has been made into a pickup.
