  4. I don't know why, but I feel like there is a BMW waiting to jump out of that. A Z3. Maybe just the DLO giving me that vibe.
     
  5. Good, but needs different (i.e. "less flashy") wheels.
     
  6. This is ugly as sin.

    Looks like it rear ended somebody. The designer tried too hard... it looks like it's trying to compensate for a small penis

  13. its a POS like you
     
  14. I kinda like it... it has a retrofied Shelby Series 1 vibe to it that works for me. But hey, maybe I just have a small penis.
     
  15.  
  16. If TVR built a Cobra, that is exaclly what it would look like.
     
  17. they should name it something cooler than Blade, blade is for a sleek low car.
