There are quite a few artful (and some weird) concepts offered up by Iranian designers to major car companies. For an image gallery of the full line visit this page.

The only “super car” Iran ever actually built was the Sahel. Good thing it never went into production because Jay Leno wouldn’t have bought one.
By the way, here’s a terrific Lamborghini by the Iranian designer Emil Baddal from Shiraz, but I think Emil lives in the U.S.now.
