Re: Wiesmann GT

Nice interior from what i can see. Lashings of tan leather, nice dials, makes you feel very welcomed. And that's good because you will spend most of your time seeing it from the inside, mainly because you wont want to get out and see the outside. I dont get the cross-over of modern-meets-oldies-chic. To me it's like they couldn't be bothered, or didn't know how, to style it themselves. So they decide to design it with a Morgan in mind? Why? No Morgan's are cool either. Just another car to fit in to the 'look what we made, isn't it cool' space at a motorshow while the order books remain empty. Nothing new here. Move along.

Yeah, something Morganesque about it, but that's ok.

Just for comparison: The Wiesmann GT and the Morgan Aeromax. To me, the Wiesmann is gorgeous and the Morgan looks like an oddity.

Re: Wiesmann GT

Can I be undecided?

That's a pretty good 0-60, and it's good looking in a wierd kind of way. I like it, but is it cool?

Oh sod it, yes, it's

Rare as rocking horse poo, I'd imagine. Really individual and pretty good looking in a retro way (and way better than the pug-ugly Morgan).

The funny thing is that I was going to add "who knew the Germans could do that" at the end, but I didn't after all.
