Ehh - hood scoops, while to the intent of this thread, are not really what I would consider significant asymmetry.  At that point one could argue that even a badge that is not on the vehicle centerline would qualify.

Trivia time.  1.8 DSMs had flat hoods.  You can't put a flat hood on a 2.0 1G DSM without lowering the motor slightly or the cam cover will rub on the hood.  All 2G DSMs had a hood bulge, even though only the turbo cars needed it.  The NT 2Gs used a Chrysler motor that was completely reversed with the timing belt on the passenger side.  So it had a trans bump.  Which if you take out of context, sounds dirty.

Not just the Pacer but also the Ford Windstar, for a short time,  had a driver's door that was longer than the front passenger door to compensate for the lack of a sliding door behind the driver's door.

I believe that the Pacer had a longer passenger side door.

No mention of the Saturn SC with the 3rd door...inspiration for the Veloster?

The cube or whatever the hell its called drives me nuts. Same with offset scoops, but not bulges like a dohc neon.

Land Rover likes to do this.  

It works well sometimes..


But this just looks awkward.

What about the offset bump in the hood of a Opel GT. Carburetor bubble.

 How  about the Hyundai Veloster with two doors on one side, and only one door on the other?


You misspelled "Saturn SC".

Spare tires are often asymmetrical

yes, but Land Rover's actually build their rear doors to accommodate the spare. The Discovery has a long history of asymmetrical rear doors.



As for cars.. I always fancied the side scoop from the 1st gen MR2

I remember reading that AMC Pacers had a longer door one one side? Not sure if that’s true ... or why they would have done so. 

EDIT: I should read more carefully. Already been mentioned in the thread!

If hood bulges and NACA ducts count, there are probably a lot more asymmetrical cars out there. All Lancer Evoultions prior to the VIII had NACA ducts on one side. And the Triumph TR4/TR5/TR250 had bulges on the right side.
