You can choose between a 5,8 liter engine or a 5,9 liter engine for just $100k more. Mmmkay.

Why not? In a way it's overdue. Other companies have taken on projects like this with other manufacturers (Porsches come to mind), and as nice and unique the 2002 are, there's enough examples around that a few could be done.

Wow that render looks amazing. I don't have a million bucks to blow on a car, but I hope we get to see the real thing soon.

tbh I think its butt ugly, especially the rear:


The elegant Michelotti lines totally encased in non inspirational tunerfab.
It looks like something a 4 year old/peter griffin would draw onto the original design

Remember, it's just a sketch. They haven't even built one yet.

Someone call that company and urge employees on this project to all get their heads checked.

What an awful looking car. Absolutely terrible design.
