Fornasari Racing Buggy concept - click above for high-res image gallery

Here's the brass tacks: When we like a show car, we like it. Case in point, we're still semi-drunk on car show pleasure from the fleeting moments we were lucky enough to spend looking at the Bertone Alfa Romeo Pandion Concept. Flip side of that coin, if we dislike something, we tell the world. As for this here pair of Fornasaris, well, we sure as hell ain't talking about the lusty Pandion.

First up is the crayola orange and two-tone gray Racing Buggy and... it's better than the Fornasari RR66 that we'll be slicing into momentarily. Honestly, this sick puppy looks like Cadillac's Art & Science team redesigned the Isuzu VehiCross with a blunt chisel, though the front and the back are actually pretty sharply crafted. Since that's about the nicest thing we have to say, we'll move on to the RR66.

Dude, seriously? The navy blue RR66 is one of those rare show cars that we just can't believe ever made it out of the Mac Book Pro, let alone anything resembling a design studio. Did the designer down a bottle of scotch while staring at the Spyker Peking-Paris SUV long enough for that ugly duckling to look good? Yes. But never mind the awkward, two-door SUV proportions, check out the rotten detailing.

The wood used for the RR66's sills and cargo box is not the exquisite stuff used to line the innards of the Audi A7 Coastline Concept. In fact, it looks like it fell off the same tree we used to make a chessboard out of in 8th grade. But unlike our highly praised chessboard (hi mom!), Fornasari didn't even varnish the stuff. That's just lazy, and we hate lazy. We also hate the last-minute-afterthought pressed-in slumlord rear window. OK, it's late and we're running low on hate-juice, but you get the idea. How do you kids say it? FAIL.

      I'd rather be seen driving a Suzuki X90 than being caught within a 10ft pole of this thng...

      If you took them both into a blender, and turned it on "puree", I bet you would pour out the Local Motors Rally Fighter.

      I'd never heard of Fornasari before this post, but they've apparently gotten their hands on some of whatever Rinspeed's smoking.

      I was on their website the other day and I actually enjoyed some models, though not all. They have a sort of modern day LM002 feel to them.

        A horribly built LM002...

      Not bad, but you goes are talking about the LM002, that thing is perfect, miss it.
