Bugatti?

With Korean language posters in the back?  And 9 cylinder straight engine?  Plus, look at the man standing at the  5th cylinder from the front!  I don't think that Signori Buggati, despite his pechant for putting locomotive engines [and ignoring the brakes] would subcontract to Korea!

The real Buggatti were based on his locomotive engines.  "Signore, why do your cars have such big engines and such small brakes?  I build them to go!  Not to stop!",  No Buggatti were front engine, front drive, or a mutant rear engine, rear drive.  This engine transaxle combo looks like a VW or Porsche "W" spliced engine for a race car or insanely rich buyer.

^^It's hard to believe that something that sexy is from 1932.  American car manufacturer's have never produced anything as sexy as the European cars of the era.

 

 

I might be tempted to say "The Lincoln Contentental [Mark 1 to distinguish it from follow ons]" produced until 1947  Modified Lincoln Zephyr body and engine [by Edsel Ford, Henry;s son,  No kidding!].  If you wanted to rebuild the engine [and you had too, frequently] you should have replaced the Ford 2 ring pistons with Hudson 3 ring pistons!  Better oil control and compression retention.  Did I just give away my age / generation?  Great looking cars!  Owned the Hudson, not the Continental,

Then too, there was the Cord 810. Front wheel drive and as good looking as you would want!  Golf club door storage receptacle was standard.  The Datsun roadster 1500 and RL411 sedan 13 inch wheel covers are a remarkable look alike to the Cord wheel and center dog dish even though they are 1 piece.

I know both your examples well.  I will rest that to each their own.  Though both are great machines, I don't see the same beauty you do.
