  2. Re: My opinion

    It looks meaN AND Controversial, it uses a retro-futuristic design theme, almost jetsons-like...

    but the engine is quite a jewel of modern engineering, and the best news is that its going into production (the engine not the car) by 2003... it will be the top engine choice for the Dodge RAM and the next gen LX (rear drive) sedans: the concorde, the intrepid (both retro- looking, the last one possbily resembling this car) and the 300N.

    But you say it doesnt look heavy? uhhm because it actually is, and looks like one, maybe because it gives you the image of a strong car, instead of looking sleek but fragile, Dodge guys have gone for something raw and mean looking on this car...
    its ultra cool.

  3. Re: My opinion

    No offence at all
    remember, just my opinion
    but i think this is one of the ugliest cars i've ever seen.
    What an ugly brick nose!!!
    when u said it might go into production
    i thought u meant the car.
    and i was seriously thinking to myself
    nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    i'm gonna have to look at that ugly thing.
    nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    but it turns out that it was just the engine.
    phew!!!
    hey anyone else agree with me that the next gen ram trucks are also ugly?
    dodge is f***ing around with the noses of some of their cars and trucks and it's NASTY!!!<!-- Signature -->

  6. Re: My opinion

    indeed, the next gen Chrysler LX RWD sedans are meant to be retro-styled, the next Concorde is going to debut in concept car form at the Detroit Auto show next January and the Dodge is following soon.

    uhhm...
    the Super8 Hemi was unveiled as a concept study for personal safety, it has reinforced side beams and all sorts and airbags too, it looks heavy because it is.

    Looks like a weird cross between retro and futuristic. Not my style.

    I am a 100% MOPAR man, but I've got to admit.....this is nasty. It has a lot of potential. The modern drivertain is impressive, and the idea of creating some heavy duty powerful musclecars is great. The crossfie, for example, would be incredible with this engine. Unfortunatly, this is just a butt-ugly car. Also, autotrannies are a curse. Whats up with that?

    uhhm its a retro rendition of futuristic styling...
    remember, American cars in the 50's were futuristic...they had tailfins and the design was inspired by the rising rocket-age...
    and this car is a modern reinterpretation of the classy futuristic looks of the 50's down to the auto tranny with buttons mounted behind the steering wheel...

  12. Re: My opinion

    We'll just say the styling is "unique". The nose needs some attention but that's not what matters. The hemi is making a come back... FINALLY. I know it's always been there as a crate, but that's not the same...
     
  13. Re: My opinion

    uhhhh... why would anyone say that 3600lbs is heavy? The new thunderbird is nearly 4000 lbs. I saw this concept in person and it is huge for a car of that weight. it's bigger/taller than the current intrepid/concorde. the interior incorporates many design features that reduce weight. the seats are cool, they attach fully in the rear so it looks like they float. very cool ideas throughout. sheetmetal could use some more work, but it's got potential. the reason the nose is so damn big is because chrysler engineers are struggling to shoehorn a hot small-block in the next large-car platform. pop the hood on an intrepid/concorde/300M and tell me if you think a small-block V8 will fit. there IS NO ROOM.
     
  14. Re: My opinion

    Looks pretty good if you ask me. Looks very solid and heavy, but it isn't...

  15. Re: My opinion

    I reckon the front is stuffed but the rest is ok considering you wouldn't really see much of this car when it roars past you on the freeway <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: My opinion

    my opinion, this thing looks like a damn pop can.
     
  17. Re: My opinion

    Its pretty nice for a sedan. Its probably about the same size as the 300M, and 300ms arent made for racing. Its just a concept thats experimenting. I personally think it looks sweet and encompasses its history, especially the interior look. It seems roomy, and has a great engine.<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Re: My opinion

    the rims are nice but the body is kinda messed up with that front

  20. Re: My opinion

    I personaly think this thing looks like a piece of shit, the seats look like park benches and the total shape is just bad looking. Now don't take that im some stupid kid that has no idea wtf im talkin about, this is just my opinion and I did see it in person this morning at a car show, just didn't like it.
     
  21. Re: My opinion

    very interesting design...
     
  22. Re: My opinion

    Actually The New Skyline Might Kinda Look Like My Avatar...
     
  23. Re:

  24. Re: My opinion

  25. Re: My opinion
