Nice to see a model of this unusual car so soon after it featured on the cover of Rumcar news #128.

Well spotted Malcolm

In the blurb it says that the Alamagny was the first diamond pattern wheel layout vehicle. I think not. But what was the first car to use a diamond pattern wheel layout?

Unusual brake pedal positioning. At least the wrap-around windscreen lets you see what you're about to run into. Great photos. Thanks

Great photos Jean-do. The Alamagny is truly a hidden gem. Too bad it never moved beyond the prototype phase and it garnered little interest in the show rooms it appeared.
