Jonckheere Works of Belgium, in 1935, built the Rolls-Royce Phantom I Aerodynamic Coupe, known today as the "round door." Nobody knows who commissioned or designed the car due to the records being lost in the second world war, but it's obvious that the car is Jonckheere's magnum opus. 

The company still exists manufacturing car and bus bodies, but it is clearly longing for the glory days. To get that feeling back, Jonckheere commissioned Ugur Sahin to design a modern take on the car, and this is the absolutely amazing result. If the company decides to go ahead and build it as a one off, and they damn-well better, it will be magnificent.
