Obviously, they never got the memo that this had been released a few years ago...

I know, and it isn't the first 16 cylinder car (that, if I recall correctly, belongs to BRM), but it was the first 16 cylinder production car.

I love the fact that it's a saloon and I like the styling cues of the tail end - reminds me a bit of the Boattails. However, that's where the love affair ends. The lights, both front and rear, are hideous and the grill looks like it was tacked on with sillyputty as an after-thought. Those side vents are horrible and completely out of place. The only good thing about the exterior styling is the profile, which is brilliant.

From the side it looks brilliant and more importantly, expensive, but I'm with Blind, any other angle looks like a generic pastiche of every infuriating "neoclassical" land barge built by clueless geezers. Judging by Dimora's history, that shouldn't come as a surprise.

Also, the site and images look like they were done by a 15-year old kid in his middle school Graphics class. Oh sure, of course I'll part with my 2 million dollars!

They should just build this instead, concept of a modern Duesenberg.

BRM the race car maker made a 16 cylinder street car?

Cadillac had a 16 cylinder car in the late 30's. It's why they built the Sixteen Concept recently.

edit: damn it... left the page open to long.

the Cizeta was also a V16 (from 2 V8), so it?s not that revolutionnary, concerning this car 2millions are way to expensive for something looking like that

Reminds me of the Cadillac Sixteen concept. Looks very luxurious, but the front grill is a little weird...

looks like a joke too, but it just MAY sell. Spooky unemotional car, that is. I sort of love it!
