Quite nice actually, the inside, especially with the middle panel is very similar to a Nissan Primera (new shape).

I like the look to the car, very sleek and evil looking, certainly would catch your eye.

Not to mention the badge is very nissan-esque and positioned in the same spot. Though besides the brake lights, the overall shape of the back reminds me more of that guady avalon.

Nothing special, but it's nice to see they got someone else apart from a blind 5 year old with crayons to style their cars. Interior is nothing special. They couldn't have taken some real pictures of it?

Lol, just a bit. It's a complete rip-off of a 350Z. If I were Nissan, I'd be consulting my lawyers.

Having said that, it's the first Ssangyong that doesn't make me want to dissolve my retinas with acid.

Rip off of the 350z? I guess, but lots of the new Accord in it too...

BONG! Ssangyong in "not hideous car" shock
BONG! World war 2 bomber found on moon

The rear side windows of that Honda reminds me of something, though i can't place what, maybe a BMW or Vauxhall...

Not exactly sure those are real. Look at the windows, rims, reflections, trim etc...

Those are renders, withou t a doubt. Poor renders at that. You're into 3d modelling, you should know what renders look like. confused.gif

Spy shots of the new VE Commodore Ute have been taken along with some I believe concept fan work of what it will look like based on the spy shots.

- VW claims a top speed of 202 mph
- 6.0l W12 12-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine mounted in the back seat of the GTI
- 650hp and 553 lb-ft. of torque (!)
- with the flared fenders the car sits over 6 feet wide and only 4.6 feet tall
- 19" wheels with 295 rear rubber and 235 front rubber
- the fenders are flared 3.15" at the rear

All that, and an AUTO box. What a f*cking waste.

Very nice indeed, that's the only car that I can actually say suits white, I hate that colour on other cars.

Rims are beautiful, bet that baby can fairly motor, .6.0 litre.

I disagree, Peal Lancia Delta Intrergales look awesome in the flesh too.

OMFG! My comment above was based on knowing one a few years back in the flesh. Googles peak intergrale and it was the first one to appear!! The same car! I thought he took it to the south of france with him. Odd riding in a left hooker in the UK too.

Beautiful car in the flesh:

Holy sh*t that's a monster of a GTI...
It's gotta be insane to drive...
Even with that big ass engine, it's still gotta be light as hell. 0-60 in under 4 is my guess...

edit: just found on a site "the GTI W12 can hit 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds."
Go me tounge.gif
As fast as a C6 Z06 to 60, probably pulls on it after that though mercie_blink.gif

and on what this car is comparable to a lambo? the fact is has four wheels and a engine? sarcasm.gif

suposed to be a dialy driver... you don't see lambos going around the streets everyday do you? so considering that, a small rear window will become a problem in a short period of time... specialy while parking it (which is a real pain to do depending on the car)...

I've always loved the GTI in white too, and that car looks beastie. As you say, shame about the auto box. Is the engine the same one that is/was in the Passat?

I like that Holden Ute too, and that's saying something, I usually can't stand the things!

You're some kind of stupid, aren't you? Ever driven a car? You'll realize that the side mirrors don't do sh*t all while backing up (parking, specifically) unless, and with the rear that high, you won't be able to seen anything behind you that isn't a good 3-4 feet tall. Such as a child. Or a dog. Catch my drift?

bingo, exactly what i'm trying to say. With a window that high you wont be able to see objects, people and bumpers near you, making parking a pain. The ford fiesta sedan sufers from this problem here. the boot line is high and prevents you from seing properly the distance btw your car and anything behind you. Also, with a window that high you create a lot of dead rearview zone, wich on some cases can make it troublesome to make lane changes safely.

Also A.Fonz, the way you drawed it display exacly the situation. if you are smart enought you will know why...

you obviously have never driven a loaded van for a living. you do learn how to back into tight spaces using only your side mirrors.


i have to sacrifice visibility for cargo, the driver of that would have to sacrifice visibility for style.......if you want to call it that, ugg.

Lol, I know how that is. I learned to drive in a mini (if you can call it that) van. Big ass thing, and I've driven around plenty of times with it full of friends. If you've got enough spatial awareness you can do it.

The rear view out of the maloo looks similar to what a Lambo would have, and people manage to back those things up. It just takes... skill I guess?
