It does look much better in video than pictures so hopefully it'll look much better in person.






Nice!

seeing the latest dramatic and polished wallpapers i have to say that the overall appeal is getting better and better to me.

maybe the pics from the initial press release were too neutral and cool (especially the plain red sport type). i guess there has to be at least a metallic finish to do justice to the alternating surfaces in the front end.

it's not love at first sight, but you know...

Actually despite not knowing his sharks he does makes an interesting comparison.

For example compare the snout of the shark to the snout of the F20.
You can see there are rounded lines to enhance the features of the shark's snout , contours on the bridge of the snout and around the mouth.
Actually in a way similar to the F20 especially the details around the headlights form a lower point at the top edge of the kidney grilles in the car's snout. Whilst the contours on the bonnet and at the top of the headlights form the upper form of the F20's snout.

this car will look best in dark color and with black grille that blends as much as possible with the body. Big wheels, Msport... that'll do perhaps.

I actually really like it. I don't mind the funky front fascia nor the hips in back nor the lights. It all looks fine to me. I think the red one with 5 spokes looks great.

South - if you are still reading this massive thread - can you confirm the new engine is N13B16? That's what I saw it referred to long ago in an old magazine article.

I think there will be a 128is (or maybe 130is) model later with the N20B20.

But yeah I'd rock one... if they made them with an S65 under the hood.
