Default Not another ugly 'Tuned' cayenne - Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS

Why? Why? WHY ?

Why can't people just accept that the cayenne is THE ugliest car out there, and while it seems almost impossible, any attempt to improve it's looks will only make it look even uglier.

Masquerading as a Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS, while this does have markedly better performance (4.3 secs to the ton with it's 750bhp engine) than a standard cayenne, it begs the question -

What would you have to be smoking to be seen dead in this car ?

I thought it was a toy car till I saw the interiors.

Even though I think the regular Cayenne is an ok looker but whoever made this just spoilt the whole deal. When will people realize the cuts given to a sports car cannot be directly carried over to an SUV.

I would love to drive it for performance bliss but the car must have dark tints

The interior is horrible and looks weird and uncomfortable.
The rear looks like its borrowed the lights from the Civic.
The front looks like a design project gone bad.
IMHO....really loser type.

I dont think it looks *THAT* bad. I mean its got 750 horses for crying out loud. And am sure its not a SUV anymore with those wheels and that kind of lowering/power.

+ 1 billion. There is nothing 'SUV' about about the drunken love-child of a Carrera GT and a garbage truck.

quickdraw, pray tell me what power has to do with the looks of the car.

It doesn't even have a transparent engine cover for all those horses to be visible !!

They made an SUV look like a hatchback. Congratulations Gembella. (sarcasm)

Lol. I don't know why, but the front looks nice and stealth to me. But the rear is a total turn off, and the interiors are needlessly Carrera GT'ized.
