Published by admin on

You would certainly agree that The AMC Gremlin is one of the most unattractive, bad-looking cars of all time. It had a poor physical structure and it certainly was awful on gas. In spite of that, it till by some means is in our minds, we still remember it. Even though the AMC Gremlin does not have as interesting history as the DeLorean DMC-12, and its display may not be as attractive as its generations’ cars in the 1970s – the Ferarri (Pininfarina) 512S Modulo or the Lancia (Bertone) Stratos HF Zero – it is however a charming car waiting and asking for a look at.

However, a part of the blame goes on a platform AM used when designing this car.

It took part in different motorsports as the NASCAR. The legend Bobby Allison who was the AMC factory-backed drive, drove it. AMC Hornet has got a cinematic history too, driven by Roger Moore in the role in a James Bond film – the 1974’s “The Man With The Golden Gun”. On the other hand, Gremlin was maybe that ugly because of its back end slants which makes it look rough, unbalanced being looked at from any angle.
