Rare "Gangster-looking" car

I was fooling around on the internet the other day. I ran across some list of the top ten most expensive cars. They had this amazing looking car that looked like a modern version of one of the old gangster-era cars. Something that looked like a modern one of these: http://images.search.yahoo.com/searc...ei=UTF-8&src=p.

I remember the car company had a website. I just can't remember the name of the company and I have been searching through all the top ten websites I can find. I remember something about them only making about 50 of these a year. Can anybody help me remember what this is?

im thinking the morgan aero 8 like you posted a few posts after this, however i dont think its nearly at the top 10 most expensive cars...
