It's an impressive piece of machinery, and the DTM influence is apparent with the wheel arches and valances. But personally, I'm not impressed with the styling, it's too busy with a lot going on, pulling the eye in multiple directions. More lines and bumps and aero tricks than understated elegance.
But I'd sure love to whip that puppy around a track.......
