Avanti II

An Avanti II
A striking car...

 Coming out of our favourite weekend breakfast cafe recently my attention was captured by this unusual looking car. It was branded Avanti II. 

According to Wikipedia:

The Avanti (including the Avanti II) is an American performance sports coupe based on the Studebaker Avanti and marketed through a succession of five different ownership arrangements between 1965 and 2006.

Apparently, the big selling point of Avanti's is that they were manufactured to the buyer's specifications. 

From another source:

Colors? The rainbow was the limit. Fabrics? Just about anything that could be sewn into seats might be ordered -- with stitchwork performed by a former Studebaker craftsman.
