Not too keen on hood & paintjob, but for the rest 100% awesome.

I want one of these little things so very very badly.
Join the queue.

205hp may not sound like much, but the car is considered fun with stock 63hp (at only 725kg), imagine it with triple that! It's a better PWR than an E46 M3 for example. You'd need plastic sea covers.

Ugh, SMG. I hate driving SMG cars. They are the worst.

That being said I've only driven SMG I and SMG II... maybe the SMG III is better, but I doubt it.

I like it. Though the extra overhang of the GN front end does look a little awkward from certain angles.
It is not the overhang that makes it look a bit awkward, it is the height of the whole front end. It has really tall springs in the front and taller than stock tires and wheels, all to aid in weight transfer.


Concept cars can be so cool.

It's the mullet car!

... that'll buff right out...

right?

... right? ...

:cry:
If it isn't, at least it went out doing what it was supposed to do. Unlike oh so many corvettes that end backwards into a tree after a retard pensioner couldn't do a god damned burnout.
