1972 Maserati Boomerang

This is not a DeLorean prototype, just the sleek Maserati Boomerang, which was first revealed at the Turin Auto Show in 1971. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, this unique vehicle is powered by a 4.7L V8 engine that generates 310-horsepower, driving the rear wheels, and mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. It has a unique dashboard layout where the steering wheel and gauge cluster are part of a single console that emerges from the dash, and the steering wheel rotates around the stationary gauges.
