I thought exactly the opposite, really. The front end is weird and the new tailights are reminiscent of the previous gen Hyundai Sonata.

Well they chose a very dynamic and unrealistic front 3/4 shot. I'd like to see how it looks at eye level.

I agree with leif, but not necessarily for the same reasons.

The standard Murci is just gorgeous with its aggressive wedge and angry face; this is softer, more french, and much worse for it.

Well like i said above. You have a low 3/4 shot that's going to distort the front end. That's why I want to see it at a more realistic angle. and CLARK RESIZE THAT DAMN IMAGE.

there are alot of very good, and conservative Itallian designs...like the Massarati 3600 Grand Sport, the Quattroporte, 575 MM, 512BB, Fiat 8V.

I think the Itallians are the only ones who can atcually pull off a mad design to aplause...but it is by no means their trademark.

and leave that image alone! it fist nicely on my 16:9 screen!

I fail to see what is so radical about this?

The Quattroporte is conservative I'd say...very classically styled and pretty, and not necessarily BLAND, but very traditional.
