It was styled and built by Ghia using the XNR as the inspiration (?) for the styling.

They started with a Valiant platform (S/N - 1102224086) and it looks like the car had the Hyper-Pak installed on the 170-cid slant six.

The serial number breaks down as :
1 - Valiant
1 - V-100 series
0 - 1960 model year
2 - Hamtramck assembly plant
224086 - 124,086th 1960 car built at Hamtramck.

Nice to see the oil cap and the PCV unit painted black. Have seen a few repainted slant sixes with the two units painted red. Weren't removed when the engine was repainted. Wheel covers look like modified 1962 Plymouth Sport Fury, and not original.,

Ghia built a coupe version of this car in 1962, called the St. Regis, and exhibited at the International Automobile Show in Geneva. The St. Regis had no hump on the hood and no fin on the rear trunk. Also, the blade from the front fender ran through to the rear quarter panel. No curve down around the rear wheel opening as on the Valiant and 1962 Dart. Wheel covers on the St. Regis are similar to the original covers on the Assimetrica.

In both cases, I see an influence on the Studebaker Avanti, at least in the taillights. With better (wider) wheels and tires, I think that I could even like the Asimmetrica

One look at any of the 1958 CDPD cars, and I would not bother
to "try" and like this one. Too many really great looking cars out
there to have to work to like something else.

Looks like the early Pontiac Tempest from the back end too. Face
it, the grand era of elegant lines and fins was sold down the river
for "something new", even if the designers really had no theme to
base it on. I call the post fin era "the lost years", where designers
were really lost on what they wanted cars to look like. Design was
basically "adrift", and certainly disjointed for the next 5 years or so,
when compared to earlier styling periods. Especially at Mopar.
These concept cars portray this trending perfectly. Awkward body
sculpting, proportions ... Like them or not, they were the tombstone
on the idea of smooth and flowing lines.
