... Is very yellow. And aggressive. Thoughts?

I want to know how to open the hood.

I bet it has a really nice personality.

Seeing where the lines are at on the fenders, I'm going to say the hood and the tops of the fenders come up as one piece.

As for the homage, I really like it.

I feel that it has a look that will grow on you, like fungus, or cancer.

I like the rear fenders, but the wrap over front fenders go too far.

The nose needs some tweeking, otherwise, I like it.

It appears to be a fitting homage...I'd rock one.

I like it too. The original was over the top in its day, and it carries on the I8 theme in details. I'd have one.

And people complained about Bangle.

I think that it's an interesting design, but a lousy tribute.

I like it. I agree that the nose, specifically the grill, needs some work. Looks like a pointy nose. I'm sure it's for ped pro, but it looks nit great. The whole design though, looks great.

I like it. If BMW didn't tell you it was a Batmobile homage, you'd probably still peg it as one. It's got lots of interesting design elements that aren't carbon copies of the CSL, but are obviously related.

It looks like it fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

Side and rear are nice but that front is nasty. This is coming from someone who doesnt mind the lexus predator grill.

It's fine from the scuttle back. Lose the silly front fenders and tidy up the front a little. The grille is overdone.

Pretty much my opinion as well, but as a whole I like it.
