    It's called a Spyker C8. Call me crazy but I love them. I think they're so cool. The interior is amazing. I think I'm going to have to make a trip down to Manhattan Motorcars this weekend to see that thing. I've only seen them in person two or three times. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

    Extrerior looks cool. I kinda like the "70's Trans Am" dash. That steering wheel and those glory hole windows are terrible.

    Thanks for the pics, but I need to get a pet peeve off my chest.

    Why do people think that turning the camera at 45 degrees makes any picture "artsy". When done RIGHT, its a good technique. When done wrong, its just aggravating. Its like when web designers with no taste discovered animated GIF's and loaded their sites with them - a la Homer Simpson.

    The camera tilt *can* be a good technique *sometimes*, but in 50 shots, one tilt shot is probably enough.

    Is it an automatic or like a sequential gearbox?

    70's Trans Am? How about 1930's art deco. You gotta see it in person, not one inch of plastic anywhere in the interior. All switches are billet. Everything is covered in leather. Looks much better in person.

    It's like a song that is "remixed" to make it longer. It's like adding an extra slice of bread on each side of a sandwich. It doesn't make it any "better", only thicker.
    Now back to the goofy retro-mobile.

    SWEEETT!! I love silver C8's. Third favorite car, close behind the F50 and Carrera GT. So awesome!

    The basic shape is really nice, but it has too many doodads - it's the lovechild of a DB7 and a Zonda F.

    While I think swirl-brushed metal is very cool, something tells me that the dash of that car probably has a LOT of glare.

    Way too busy.

    As my wife (an interior designer) says, great design is not what you put in, but what you leave out.

    OH i see it now, my eyes were playing tricks on me. I thought that bar on the bottom was a slot in the console.
