As well as looking like a wedge of funky space cheese, the Murena had three-abreast seating, just like the McLaren F1. Alas, it was slightly different... in every other way. You could chose between a wheezy 1.6-litre four-pot from the Spanish Peugeot 205 GTX, or the slightly less wheezy 2.2-litre four-pot from a Citroen BX 4TC. The latter got it from 0-60mph in, er, 9.2 seconds. The Murena was canned after just three years on the market, and the factory that built it switched to manufacturing the Renault Espace. Which was probably faster.
