11. Momo Mirage
The Momo Mirage was the brainchild of New York’s Peter Kalikow and his friend Albert Momo. Kalikow was a wealthy car enthusiast and Momo was a Jaguar dealer, and the two developed a close friendship around cars. So, in the late ‘70s, they decided to build their own car company to produce exclusive coupes with Italian styling and bodies. But they would come with Chevrolet V8 engines.
Soon, they contacted the famous Italian designer, Pietro Frua, who agreed to design and build the Momo Mirage. Unfortunately, the Momo car company started in the early ‘70s just before the economic recession, which greatly affected the car market. As a result, they never completed the plan to build 25 Mirages per year. In fact, Frua only completed five cars, three of which are still in the possession of Peter Kalikow.
