    Pretty impressive design, although I don't think EuroNcap will rated it particularly good on pedestrian safety

    Looks grand, but hasn't modern-retro been done to death yet?

    Shelby Cobra with a longer front and mustang mix. Still looks pretty damn good.

    I think its best safety feature is under the bonnet.

    If it comes to fruition it should be very, very fast and it's rather good looking. I wish their website was bit less vague about pricing.

    I don't like it, it is trying to be very curvy while having very sharp edges.

    I really like it. It does rip off many classic designs but at least they look good together.
