It can be argued that Italian design house Pininfarina has produced some of the most exotic tuned-up supercars this side of the history books. For the most part, these guys are about as good as it gets when it comes to taking exotics and turning them into full-fledged four-wheeled examples of cars we can only dream about.

That being said, we did say ’for the most part’.

As much as these guys are responsible for beautiful pieces of eye candy, they have also, on occasion, released cars that aren’t so much as beautiful as they are eye-catching and this 1960 Pininfarina X is about as weird as it gets. Suffice it to say, this awkward three-wheeled concept is like one of those Greek centaurs come to life: head of a plane and the body of, uhm, a car.

Before you start snickering at the sheer bodaciousness of this car, you need to realize that despite its appearance, this car comes with a pretty mind-boggling price tag. How mind-boggling, you ask? Try to the tune of a cool $3 million.

Still laughing? We didn’t think so.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

What the heck $3 million? I would rather have veyron than the this. It looks like a WW2 fighter plane’s pit.

Well like what other said, I would have a GT-R and tune it to the fullest than having a legend car like this.

Wow! That is so very expensive and am sure this kind of car can actually catches an attention when driving it on the road.

Huh, that’s too expensive! I would rather have a bugatti veyron or the legend GT-R than having this. With that kind of money I can custom my GT-R to the fullest.
