disgusting - looks like a f*cking still-born beemer Z3.

Agree, just too ugly. If that's Italian style they have really lost the plot.

I agree,looks like a F****** beemer, even my Eleven year says all the modern cars look the same these days. This is the sort of design that comes from KIA

Stick with the Cobra and be Individual.

I have to agree with some of the posts...........it strikes me as a mix between a BMW Mini, a nissan 370Z (which also looks very German/porschesque!!) and a Z4. Can't find a Mercedes tie in but add an Audio grill to the front and you almost have a complete set!!

This also looks more of an abortion than the american offering that was posted on here a couple of years ago.............mind you, even the great man himself tinkered with his own creation when he got Ford to come up with another modern version that fell short of the mark.

Leave the Cobra alone!.............its an icon for christ sake:mad:
