Styling is always going to generate controversy - some like it, some don't. It seems most here don't like it and I am with that camp. The tail lights seem to me the most offensive piece - a proper Vette should have round ones.
The performance of this car for the $ though is as good as it gets. Decent mileage too. It is a modern take on an American supercar, some here have mentioned the Mustang but to me it's not really a fair comparo - they're two different cars.
Lots of old Hondas, 2 Yamahas, 2 Kawi's.
