: : : : Actually, I like it. Round headlights, European turnsignals like the '02. Front/rear bumper like the pre-74 round tailights. 2 door and the color is Inka, flip out rear side windows.
: : : : IMHO, this car was designed by someone who may have owned and appreciated an '02 sometime in his life.
: : : : I'm not a real horsepower type of guy. Give me 140 hp, a nice tight suspension and I'd be forced into talking the S.O. in letting me buy one for my 50th birthday (2002). Call this version the vanilla flavored 2002 and have a high performance version (175 hp) called, appropriately, the "tii".
: Looks a lot like all those other "soap bars" on wheels out there IMHO!
Great design, loose the wanna-be direct take-off turn signals. I know it's probably the most note worthy item, but it doesn't work. They look stuck-on, after thought, you know not right... My 02-cents worth... Oh, yeah doesn't look anything like an 02......But I guess it doesn't have to...Like the Euro large/small lights....
