Cool Supercar or Just Weird?

The Covini Engineering team claims this is the production version of the six-wheeled C6W that's finally being unveiled this week. The future is now.The Covini Six Wheeler takes its engineering inspiration from the 1976 Tyrell P34 race car. That car had two sets of front wheels that were intended to increase air penetration and provide a smaller frontal area to reduce drag.
Even though the specific engineering behind the Tyrell P34 doesn't necessarily translate to the C6W, Ferruccio Covini, the company's founder, gave the following reasons two years ago for why he's creating his modern-day six-wheeler:

• Less risk of front tires deflating
• Less risk of aquaplaning
• Better braking
• Better grip
• Better comfort
• Better absorption of frontal impact
