Knew that. Designed at the same time as the first Figaro. Probably the start of the Nostalgia Movement in car design. This ultimately lead to the New Beetle, Audi TT, Porsche Boxter and soon the New Bus (etc. etc.)

Pteropod? Is that what Hawaiian "Ptero Root" comes from ? Heteropod? Straight snails?

Well, if you find a new species, you can call it an Andrupod. It's main source of locomotion will be conceived in Japan. The shell calcified in Germany. And the will be so fast that needs "Big Red" brake dust to slow down.
