I've been keeping track of this Coupe since a long time. Have been really wondering what car this could be. The rear lights are of the NHC. The side profile (front fender and doors) matches the Lancer with those bulges. I had absolutely no idea what this car could be. So yesterday I decided to pay a visit and find out something about the car. And *I couldnt believe when the guy told me its a ___ .

Its ur turn to guess now. I've guessed enough for a month now and was wrong all the time. And how do you think the car is gonna turn out. Your opinions please.

Spot on rtech. This should also go for tyre up size. Otherwise the body will look too bulky.

v12, your camera captures amazing shadow details. Great.

I remember you told me that. This light gray shade could be due fading. v12 can only throw light on this by checking with them.

I don't get it...if you're gonna spend all that money, atleast make a car that looks good.

The overall shape is very similar to the first generation Hyundai Accent Coupe, especially the C pillar area. And the front looks like an older generation Chevy Cavaliar.

This guy is sure setting his standards low!
