21. Brasinca 4200 GT Uirapuru
Behind this strange and hard-to-pronounce name lies an equally obscure sports car they produced in Brazil. Brasinca conceived it as a serious contender to those foreign, mostly European sports cars. They presented it at the Sao Paulo Auto Show in 1964. The public was mesmerized by its advanced design and technology.
The Uirapuru had a custom steel chassis, sculpted body and 4.2-liter Chevrolet engine delivering a healthy 155 HP. The car was reasonably expensive but not unobtainable. Car customers loved its weird styling and performance. However, the Brazilian market had limited potential, so they only produced 73 of them until 1967 when production stopped.
