Obviously a show car or made up for the film. Any idea what it is based on?

ce film était un petit budget. il faut donc chercher une voiture qui présente la même base approximativement.ainsi on peut supposer qu'il s'agit d'une DMC.

D'un autre côté en 1982 une DMC était neuve et valait 20 000 $, ils ont bien pu trouver moins cher, non ?

All the 'future' cars in Blade Runner were designed by visual futurist Syd Mead.
They are called 'SPINNER' -- A generic term for all flying cars in use around
the year 2020.
Only specially authorized people and police are licensed to operate these
remarkable vehicles, which are capable of street driving, vertical lift-off,
hovering and high-speed cruising. The Spinner is powered by three engines --
conventional internal combustion, jet and anti-gravity.

[Syd Mead explained in subsequent articles that the concept was actually one
of internal lift like that used in vertical take-off aircraft today--NOT

Examples of his art can be seen here:

SYD MEAD: Visual Futurist. Syd Mead suggested the term "visual futurist"
over his credit in the movie. (As he is not a union/guild member, he could
not use credits such as "creative designer".) He has been co-sponsoring an
International Student Design Competition with Sony since 1989. Some of his
works are:

California Pavilion, Seville Expo (1992)
Future Terminal, for Japan Railways East (1990)
Club Car, for Japan Railways East (1990)
Dr. Jeekans [This is futuristic cafe/video arcade in Tokyo.] (1990)
Office for the Future, for Okamura Furniture Co, Japan (1989)
Club House (Tokyo Bayside Project) (1989)
Tron Computer (1988)
San Rio Theatre (1987)
Office of the Future, for GE (1985)
Terraforming (video game)
Civilization (video game)

This is the "sedan", like all the other BR vehicles build by Gene Winfield. Custom build. Nothing was borrowed designwise, nor a showcar or some preconceived concept car. The red one pictured above is on display in Florida.

This got reused in Charles Band's 'Trancers' two years later
