The Covini 6SW, A $640,000 Six Wheeled Supercar

The car has a starting price of €600,000 but can be much more expensive if customised. And the family say that the public response to their creation is incredible. Federico said: “Generally the people who see this car for the first time are amazed – they simply can’t believe what they’re seeing.”via: Barcroft Cars
