German company Michalak wanted to establish themselves at the 1993 Frankfurt Motor Show, so what better way than to create a one-off supercar, and thus the Ferrari Conciso was born. Designer Bernd Michalak handcrafted the unique shape, and his team used aluminum to form the panels, while ditching the roof as well as the doors, for a simple, frameless windshield.

Beneath the shell, you’ll find a 1989 Ferrari 328-sourced, mid-mounted, transversely oriented 3.2-liter V8 making 270 horsepower, mated to a five-speed manual transmission, complete with a gated shifter, enabling it to hit 62 miles per hour in about 5 seconds and top out at 173 mph. Best of all, the Conciso is street legal and its previous owner managed to register it in Belgium.
