IAD (International Automotive Design), a UK based company
founded in the 1970's, first unveiled the Venus concept
car at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show.
For 1990 IAD revealed a working prototype of the Venus
which used a Lotus Elite drive-train transplanted into
a unique body.
One of the more unusual features of the IAD Venus, apart
from its shape, were the wheel coverings which almost
entirely encased the wheels.
