Usually yes, but I'm thinking of the styling of the car, not the idiot drivers.

I have never experienced so much road-rage or thoughtless driving as I have in Tasmania.  They can see you're backing out in the supermarket carpark but they won't wait - they just barge past & hope you don't hit them.  Or more probably, being hillbillies, they simply can't see anything outside the 1 degree of sight right in front of them. :(

Someone in UK did try with a notch-back -- I redid it with a fast-back.

and a custom sports-car by Barcroft in Canada which could be a modern take on the old Jensen CV-8

Going back a bit ... bodywork for the Simca 1200S coupť was constructed by Gruppo Bertone (for final-assembly at Poissy). Design work was by Studio Bertone's Giorgetto Giugiaro (just before he moved on to Ghia).

The Chrysler 180 began as competing Rootes and Simca projects. Final design for Chrysler UK was by American Curt Gwinn (who later moved from Rootes to Peugeot).

For your what-if version, perhaps revive the Barreiros marque (instead of retaining the faltering Chrysler name)?

If you are looking for absurdly over the top pickups, Hennessey Motor's Velociraptor 6x6 probably takes first prize at "only" a little under $499K.  They start with a Ford F-150 Raptor and then mode the daylights out of it.  I suppose it's not surprising the company is located in Texas, Sealy, TX to be precise - that's about 60 miles west of Houston on I-10.  And if a pickup isn't to your liking, they make a number of other extreme vehicles.
