Fix It Again Bertone; Italian Suit on an English Body

Poking around the internet looking for nothing in particular is usually how we stumble across the coolest stuff. Take this Bertone bodied Jaguar originally designed for the 1966 Geneva Motor Show, rare as a cop having a good day, this is a truly special vehicle for the collector who has everything.

We can't say that the looks of the Jaguar 420 donor car were improved by all the panel beating, but it does have a certain appeal just like the Rolls-Royce Camargue, which eschews traditional styling in exchange for some exceptionally horizontal lines so popular with 1960's Italian design houses.

The best part? The car is for sale... but as the ad states, it's "not cheap, but a very good investment."
