Tbf, that car is just ugly. It's got a rear side window that looks like a kid drew it, those triple exhaust tips remind me of those car horns that old American muscle cars have and that rear spoiler in that last pic looks like a front strut brace :lol: Oh and the front calipers are in the wrong place :lol:

Major, I'm disappointed in you :lol: Run Bradley, run for your life!! :lol:

The new car is very conservative in looks, but will still sell like hot cakes =D> =D> =D> =D>

The centre exhaust if I remember rightly, sucks air into the engine bay Ian :thumleft:
