Maybe not in a styling sense, but how do you feel it's out of touch?

I feel like if it is out to top the F1, it already is following the classic McLaren philosophy. If the KERS is functional and helps it go faster, I don't see why it's a problem.

It's the same idea with the Porsche 918 I feel- I'm okay with the hybrid system when the V8 is already potent and sounds wonderful.

That's not the same vibe I get for the new Acura NSX though- I feel that Honda's priority is still fuel economy and that's holding it back from developing an all out driver's car. I still hope it comes out okay though.
