Not a bad looks, a few refinements to get the JDM look off of the front and rear and we're good to go.

Personally, I think it's one of the HOTTEST concept cars I've ever seen. Almost all concept cars that I've seen look like sh*t. This one, however, I wish would make it out onto the road.

I dunno I still prefer the MB SLR over the Z9

Can one Photoshop expert remove that ugly spoiler on the cabriolet? I'm wondering how would it look w/o spoiler.

I like it too.

But it's strange... the rear end definitely has that E65 thing going on... but on this car, it just works.

The kidney grille is a bit of a stretch too, but again, it's okay...

Will be interesting to see what the production version ends up looking like.

Anyone notice how the driver in the second pic looks like he doesn't have enough head room? His head is all cocked to the side :D :D :D

That's just Hans-Dieter smiling for the camera. :)

I just pulled a generic German name out of my Schwarzewald. :)

LOL! Hans is ok to me. 'Egon' is a good alternative too.

"Egon?!?" Yikes. Hadn't heard of that one!

I'm actually kind of partial to "Joachim" too. :)

That is one hot/fast looking car! As long as there is enough headroom... :eek:

Hey Alex,

Same here. I like the GT. But I'm afraid I can't say the same about the cabrio...

The trunklid on the Z9 is so much better- but they had to go and introduce that wierd cut line and the extra reflectors on the E65 to screw it all up. The front-end on the Z9 is also much better. oh well. Even the eyebrow blinkers work because they're intergated into the hood cutline. Overall, a much cleaner piece of design.

It looks like a Push-me-Pull-you of Dr. Doolittle fame now. Now try to put a windshield on the other side and see if the front end looks just the the rear. An interesting concept-Aerodynamically correct in Forward or Reverse. Is Aerodynamically correct similiar to Anatomically correct?

Gorgeous design, but the front and rear features are going to take some time to get used to. At first glance the headlights, grill, and etc look disproportionate and cluttered.
Needs some inspiration from say....Hyundai.
Now that's a design house!
:p
