You sure this a DC creation? Its seems rather nice to be designed by him
The rear and interiors could have been better but otherwise the car looks good with it's Dodge-ish front end.

Other than the front end, everything else proves it to be very much a DC creature.
What engine is this thing based on?

The interior is so bad. Looks like you are sitting in a office not a car.

The front looks pretty good actually, the headlamps could've been much better. The rear and the interiors make me want to kill myself...my eyes feel violated.

. The interiors look like theyve been put together at the last moment with no real thought put into it.Look at the steering column. Looks like they left it black and forgot to paint it. Also is the steering wheel from a Lancer? They really should have changed that. Besides the speedo cluster doesnt really flow into the dash like its supposed to. The only thing I liked about the interiors is the metal centre console.
