I suspect it's fantastic to drive but it looks awful, IMO.

Interesting car, but it's seriously uncool.

It looks like it was designed by a 12-year old for a 12-year old, and not in a good, Gandini kind of way.

My neighbour has one, a 66 plate, not pretty, but I didn’t tell him that.

It has an annoying exhaust note rumble, when he leaves the street it rattles my windows. I did tell him that.

No doubt a very fast car, and by all accounts very rewarding to drive fast. But it doesn't look good, nor do I think its cool.

A bit like an Audi S3, you can pretty much guarantee that 97% of buyers with be complete ****s who spend their time ragging them round town centres and badgering people in the outside lane of the motorway.

Really not cool at all.

Part of what adds to the uncoolness of the styling is how the car is festooned with fake "intakes" of checquerboard black plastic, but then has real intakes positioned next to the fake ones...

agree, there is something achingly naff about fake air vents.

I keep looking back at this car though, and while I agree it looks awful, I can't deny I'm quite drawn to it. Wouldn't be seen dead in it, but I am warming to it. Especially if that rear wing was lobbed into a skip

I think it approaches peak-Jap in 2017, and for that I love it.

One drove past me yesterday (at about 70. In a 30 zone.). It was so uncool that the sole of my trainers began to melt.

Massively over fussy styling, it looks terrible.

The back end is even worse.
