I don't think the pictures quite do justice to the car, though the front resembles the 360 Modena, while the rear doesn't look too appealing. But apart from that i would love to see how a Mercedes V8 does sitting in the middle of a car, did wonders for the Pagani Zonda. I love the idea of these small exotic car manufacturers, means a lot more job oppurtunities.

yuk!!

I really dont think that this can even compare to the pinache of the zonda..thats in a class of its own..this god only knows what this is..

but i do agree the first think i thought after looking at the car was its a 360 with vintage ugly bad side..

Looks really cheap & the front tyres look very skinny in comparison with the rear ones.

C4S,

quite an ugly looking car. the front is a direct lift (well almost) of the 360.

I hardly did compare it to a Zonda, but there a couple of similarities, the Zonda uses a Mercedes engine too. And the Zonda is a small time exotic car manufacturer too, maybe in a different league now, but we'll have to wait for that till the car is produced. The Zonda didn't have many fans on the aesthetic front too when it came out, and look at it now. That's where the similarities end though, i should think.
