Well, talking about crazy things and this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, you should always consider this model with an… ugly brand name. And that’s not all… not by a mile.
This really, really, really weird-looking, four-seat convertible is a full 242 inches (6.14 meters) long, 93 inches (2.36 m) wide and 72 inches (1.82 m) tall, riding on a 163.5-inch (4.15 m) wheelbase. In other words, it’s significantly larger than a Bentley Mulsanne. It also rides on 20-inch chrome wheels wrapped in 44-inch tires. And we really don’t know if you agree… but this car should compete for the title of ugliest car of the year!
According to the Los Angeles-based manufacturer, the Puma was “conceptualized for those individuals who dare to be different than the ordinary. Those who go a step beyond achieving and dreaming the best that they can be.”
Talk about somebody who saw too many movies and listened too many epic songs…
Power comes from a 7.0-liter V8 (a version of GM’s LS7), putting out 505 hp and 470 pound-feet of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. That apparently allows the Puma to accelerate to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds, and it will reportedly return 14 miles per gallon in the city and 22 mpg highway. It rides on an aluminum and steel chassis, with a body – and what a body! – made of aluminum and fiberglass composites.
