Wow... that thing is sexy. Very unique design (vs all the BMWs and Mercedes that all seem to look the same anymore) and flat out good looking.

i think it looks... i don't know. bad is not the right word. more like boring and bland

the front looks nice. but the side/doors look too "clean".

i think they overdid the back, to try to make it look like the concept. It should be toned down. Since there wont be a V version kinda kills it

this car would be perfect without the fastback. but even with it the beauty is only mildly comprimised. I love that front facia to no end.

Im still interested to see what they did with the interior...


The exterior wasnt too far removed from the concept, hopefully the interior is the same way.


Concept Interior...

I'm not sure what it is, but the sedan looks a bit better than the coupe. I can't explain why though. Still good to hear that GM will build it, that car has a lot of support
