I don't hate it from the front. The rear looks like an FR-Z caricature sketch.

One thing I just spotted which I don't like is how the exhaust pipes come out. They should tuck the bodywork above the exhaust pipes rather than wrapping it around them. It would give the car some of the "mechanical and proud of it" look that I like so much and give room for proper tow hooks. They'd have to trim the pipes and diffuser ends a bit so they don't stick out rearward so much, but that will look better too.

My feelings are pretty berkeleying far from hate.

So a Cheap LFA? Is that the idea? It's ugly, but it's probably cool. Also, I kind of bet they won't actually sell one. Well, they might, right after the new NSX releases and the new Supra sells and maybe the Pacer comes back.

Ugly? Check.

Toyota? Check.

Will they ever build it? Doubtful.

Ooh he's so bulgy, he's like a moose!

Can't say I'm a fan of the front end, but from the middle of the fenders back, she's alright.
Just too much going on on the nose and hood.

Depends on their definition of 'cheap'... considering the astronomical price of the LFA.

It would be nice if they put some kind of V6 in there (2GR-FE?) and priced it in the $30-$40k range. It could be a step up from the Toyobaru, and some Corvette buyers would give it a look. It would have great balance with a short engine too.

I kinda like it, assuming it's toned down a bit for production.

no sir, I don't like it. Well, okay, for a concept car sure, fine, whatever, but as a production car there's no way I'd be seen in it. I agree with the Batman references - and that ain't a compliment.

Enzo in the front, just like the Viper, stole the roofline from Godzilla, and put the ass end of an LFA in a party hat.

You know, the new Vette is just one Will-I-Am custom job away from that.

As a bit of a tangent: Apparently this will be the latest free DLC for GranTourismo 6.
