Uncool to me...too much "boy racer" in the styling.

Remember this pic I grabbed a while back? (prior to production) It was being flown in for testing.

Earns a cool vote from me. I would have voted frozen but the styling is a bit of a let-down.

Raw, underdeveloped, poor build quality, incredibly powerful, and most likely dangerous... Frozen.

Not that fast, styling that is boring and ridiculous, not even a hint of pedigree. I like rooting for underdogs, but this isn't even that good...it's just hopeless.

Uncool.

screw you guys tard.gif ........ I like it wink.gif

Cool because it has a V8 and I quite like the styling despite what others say. But it's definately no value for money, there was an article in Auto Express about this and the Noble - it's nowhere near as fast but has a price tag that would suggest it is twice as fast!

I think it's cool because it will be one of those cars that were never popular in the future, but everyone wil be saying, "hey I remember that car, it was Old School!"

its a jumpted up mustang that costs wayy too much for no real performance gain .uncool.

see? It just isn't that fast. You can get a basic 911 Carrera for that much (in britain) that's going to weigh less, go faster, handle better, last longer, and be more comfortable.

Oh yeh I remember now, you can upgrade the performance, which includes adding Nitrous. I don't know why as it is illegal in Britain.

The nitrous option is not available on the production model.. It was a marketing stunt.. thumbs_down.gif

You can get the car with different power levels, the craziest was over 800hp. I think that might be fast enough
