Actually if that thing moves, it ain't that bad. The front is very art deco, I like that era. There is a hint of it in the back and only the side is kind of RRish.

the Italians are delighted as this serves as yet another evidence of Chinese copycat-ism with blatant disregard to intellectual property; another chalk for the Italians who claim that they invented the spaghetti noodles.

'tis indeed the RED FLAG, as used by the emperor and other dignitaries. They have an armoured version which is a bargain compared with other makes, but really can you put a price on not having a .308 pierceing through the chinese laminated "smor arms proof" rear?

Cheers,

It'll probably sell for $13K, maybe even sold through vending machines. Of course it'll have NAV, heated and cooled seats, leather, an included full-time driver, and oil changes and tire rotations for life. Also, nothing on the thing will work 6 months from when you buy it!

I will be upset when these cars are affordable and people fly at me in gigantic glaciers of plastic and almuninum due to their piss poor engineering and horrible mechanics.

Freude am fahren!
