If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Think The Alpine A110 Is Too Mainstream ? Here's The Car For You.

The Chappe & Gessalin CG 1300, because one can never have too many sexy fiberglass French sport cars. This particular one, produced from 1972 to 1974, was powered by a rear-mounted 4-cylinder straight out of the Simca 1000 Rallye, producing a little under 100bhp (but that's okay, because the car weighed 670kg, or 1477lbs). Good luck finding one though, because only 95 were made before the company went bust, as it was unable to compete with Alpine, the oil crisis and the brand new Matra Bagheera (ironically, guess who made the fiberglass bodies used by the Alpines A106, A108 2+2 and A110 GT4 ? That's right, Chappe & Gessalin). Also, this has to be the prettiest yellow I've ever seen on a car.
