Dont ask!!! "Who came up with this and why" is a legitimate question.
Produced by Majorette of France in the mid-to-late '80s. 1:60 scale diecast model of the Ferrari 288 GTO. One of a series of "Extreme Animals" models, some based on real vehicles, some completely fictional, that were half animal; a precursor to Transformers. The wheels can be adjusted to raise or lower either end of the car.
