Its looks like someone has taken a jet fighter fuselage and has attached wells to it.Those huge air intakes look menacing.Really a good design,with canopy and all.Looks much better than the Caparo design.Love it!....Is it street legal?

This must have been designed by a drunk, Overdosed, deep sea diver who had a squabble with a hammer head. Can they get more uglier than this..???
Yes they can!!

Wow!It looks freaky but in a nice way.I had a chance to see its predecessor, the Tramontana A.D. in Dubai.Only three in the world.

Here is a photo of me with it.

It indeed looks insect inspired-like one of those horny beetles, but i'm not complaining...looks pretty much ok.

is it a plane, is it a chrysler prolwer, is it a F I car ?

NO its all merged in a single 'thing' called a car.

Though it looks super 'wugly' (weirdly ugly) it will GO like STING.

Do you guys reckon this can beat the Top Gear Lap Record held by the Koenigsegg CCX, which managed it in 1m 17.6m

Cheers,
AC

The current record is held by Gumpert Apollo.[1:17.1]And you know the rule,cars wich can go over a sleeping policeman are eligible for the Top gear track record.I dont think this can clear.

Its very similar to the Caparo T1...

The current Lap record on the Top Gear track is the T-1. Though it never made it onto the Power Lap times Board cause the car was soo low. As Clarkson put it - If you cant drive over Mr Plod, it cant be on the Lap Time Board.
