A few years ago, we showed you how easy it is to roll a Reliant Robin, the car with three wheels. Imagine that car built backwards in someone’s garage. Jalopnik introduces us to the 1951 Hoffman, a car that serves as a bad example of automobile design. It has rear-wheel steering, and there’s only one rear wheel. But that’s just the beginning.

The Hoffmann was made in Germany right after the war by one M. Hoffmann, a man no one seems to know much about. I’m not entirely sold on the idea he was a human at all, actually. Whatever he was, he had real skill — the car is actually beautifully built, with lots of difficult metalwork and fabrication evident throughout.
