    I came across this rare photo of a prototype vehicle, the Dymaxion.

    It was designed by American inventor Buckminster Fuller during the Great Depression and, at the time, it was believed that the aerodynamic body would be great for fuel efficiency. Unfortunately the car never made it past the prototype phase with only three original Dymaxions available along with two replicas.
