    I've been working on it for a couple years when I get the spare time. I don't have a front or top view, those are next. Any critique or comments are greatly appreciated :)

    :) yeah, it's meant to be the successor. I love the style of the Zonda S, so I played around with it.

    Except for the wheels, front facia, door skins, rear facia, engine, and interior bits...Seems like a big change.

    Right, but overall layout is the same. The 355 is a innovation of the 348. That's what this is to the Zonda S.

    I might have the other views ready in a while, then you'll see.

    The cockpit 'bubble' seems very high, probably lower would make it more aerodynamic.

    No - I think he traced it from an ancient Aztec or Mayan hieroglyph.

    Will it come in any colors other than white and smeared charcoal?

    Seriously, I don't know about this one, but if you really like car design, you should study it more. A 2-D sketch shouldn't take 2 years. I don't know how old you are, but it seems like it could be a cool career if you have some talent, passion and dedication.

    The side view of a car has always been my favorite since I think it really shows the form of a car better.

    I was in product design my first year of college and that was when I started working on this for fun. I don't have access to CAD programs or modeling systems so I just stuck to my 2d side renderings. But now, given the negative feedback, I might put together a set of different views.

    Well Ok, if it makes you guys feel any better, I'll call my design an aftermarket body kit for the Pagani. I should have put on my flame suit before making this thread :)

    Looks good. It does look a little like the Pagani but thats not a bad design to look like.

    Rather than modifying a car that's already pretty sharp-looking, try either coming up with something from scratch, or else tweaking some of the many cars out there with questionable styling. I know it's a lot trickier to do, but if you can make some 3/4 drawings, those could be cool.

    I think the cab should be further back.

    A new body on a Fierro is to a real F355 as your drawing is to a real Zonda?

    Sorry, I don't get it?
