    The side strakes don't sit right. And in the right rear, that lip looks like an afterthought and is quite distracting from the bumper line itself. That just seems to be a mess back there. Steve Saleen should find a new designer.

    See, I thought it looked more like the back of a Saleen SR.

    Anyway I like it myself, but the extra crap in the rear makes the car look a little on the bubble butted side. That's actually what always turned me off about the S7.

    Wow, it doesn't look all that bad. A 6-speed manual and alot more horsepower would help though.

    It needs the driving lights in the grill to make it looked more pissed.

    yuck. just needs 17 more scoops and stick on body panels to be a real kit car. the back of that thing looks like they used left over parts from the old saleen mustangs. what's that analogy about putting lipstick on a pig?

    less than 100hp/liter WITH A BLOWER?


    A bit retro-chic for me, it all looks too contrived. Observe the Ford GT for retro-chic done right.

    I agree, stick-on doodads make a basically nice looking car look contrived and cheap. I'd be embarrassed to drive that.
