other people might have heard or seen something about this, it's new to me.

The Covini Engineering team's been clamoring to get the C6W into production for the last 30+ years. Now they might finally have their day.

The Covini Six Wheeler takes its engineering inspiration from the 1976 Tyrell P34 race car which had two pairs of smaller front wheels that were intended to increase air penetration and have a smaller frontal area effectively reducing drag. Although the ideas behind the Tyrell P34 don’t necessarily translate to the C6W, Ferruccio Covini, the company’s founder, gives the following reasons for creating his modern-day six-wheeler:

• Less risk of front tires deflating
• Less risk of aquaplaning
• Better braking
• Better grip
• Better comfort
• Better absorption of frontal impact

If it wasn't a 6 wheeler, it'd look damn good. But it is, so its as ugly as sin.

Bring back twin tyres.

Less risk of front tyres deflating. My ass. More risk of front tyres deflating, but less chance of it being a problem.

More road noise. Can't see it happening, nobody is going to want to spend 1400 dollars to change 6 tyres.
