It's like European car shows 30 years ago!
Just remember: as one door closes behind you, another slams in your face

Orochi still looks fantastic


I think not, looks more like something designed for the animated feature Cars, whoever thought of building a supercar with a smiley face??

Well you can keep the cars stylistically. I will settle for one of the rather nice models. Probably cheaper to run and more reliable!

That "smiley face" car is from the same compa,ny who made that horrible mini TG500 replica "thing".

Looks very inspired from Luigi Colani, who inspired himself from fish. Its nice to se his work, but after a while they all look the same.
