Yes, I have de-bumpered a few cars
but the Gamma is shaped around
the bumpers, so it has to have
something to fill the gap.

In fact, when during our Torino dinner in 2006 Aldo was asked "what inspired you to design the Gamma coupe?" Mr Brovarone surprised me (and I suspect others) by saying "We just started experimenting with composite bumpers so they were an important feature of the car". He then drew 2 little bumpers and continued "we also started working with highly curved glass" and drew the rear screen. He then said "to emphasise the curvuture of the rear screen we added the roll-over-hoop" and he drew that. He then continued to join up all these disjointed bits and there was a perfect drawing of the Gamma Coupe!!  Grin Cheesy Wink

He said to me , at the megagamma
meeting, he liked the fact I had
removed the side mouldings as
they were not part of his original
design. 😃
