    This is the 1957 Aurora Experimental Safety Vehicle (ESV) that was developed by Catholic priest Father Fred Juliano from Banford CT. The car was designed with many strange yet innovative features to improve occupant safety, such as the bulbous windshield to prevent front seat passengers from hitting their heads on the glass in a collision.

    On his way to unveil the car in New York City, it broke down multiple times and was lambasted by the media for its unreliability rather than applauded for its revolutionary focus on safety. The project died and the prototype sat forgotten for decades, until it was discovered and restored by a British hobbyist.

    The incredible "Flatmobile" sold at the Bonhams auction at Brooklands for £9,775 including premium, which is about $15,675 USD.

    Excerpts from the Bonhams auction catalog description:
    "The Flatmobile" was built specifically to break the Guinness World Record for the lowest car and amazingly is only 19" high. Other vital statistics include a ground clearance of 2", width of 5' 5" and length of 12' 2" (17" longer than standard). Construction commenced in October 2006 and in 2008 'The Flatmobile' was duly awarded the World Record. Pictured in the 2011 Guinness Book of Records, the car has featured on TV shows around the world.

    The Flatmobile is based around a 1963 Hillman Imp and retains the stock 875cc engine, giving it a top speed of 70mph. One of its more unusual features is a fully functional gas turbine engine and afterburner, mounted behind the original power unit at the rear. This home-made device was built using a Holset 685 turbocharger (from a Volvo truck) which is fed with ignited fuel from a combustion chamber that started life as a fire extinguisher - quite a role reversal.
