During the 1970s any supercar maker with any self respect was pumping out wedge shaped products at full speed.

Ford decided to get in on the wedge-tastic action in the late 70s and commissioned their European design department Ghia to develop a supercar prototype with distinctly angular proportions.

The resulting vehicle was this, the Ghia Action. When looking at the Action it's hard to imagine a vehicle which has dated worse - although it does not give off a kind of retro-chic vibe today.

The unique razor sharp bodywork was based over a rather mundane Ford Escort chassis, however the power - which came from a mid-mounted F1 derived V8 engine was anything but boring.

The Ghia Action never made it past the prototype stage - not surprising when you consider the sheer insanity of the stylists.
