This is the kinda car that seperates the men from boys I feel, so in that case it's cool...

FYI - I'd choose a 458 though as I would kill myself come the 1st corner

Supercars aren't cool. Supercars that nobody has heard of so you have to explain what it is all the time definitely aren't. Wouldn't mind a go in one though.

Isn't it just a Ford Mondeo with it's back lights upside down or something? I don't like it.

Also, where's my sandwich?

Any car like this that gets back to basics and connects the driver to the car is cool. The Elise and especially the VX220 were like this too.

Richard Hammond when reviewing this car said that this feels like a Ferrari F40 somehow...
Clarkson and May were making fun of him because its got the engine from a Volvo XC90 but it is modified by YAMAHA.

I dont like it though. Wouldnt mind if somebody gave me one (lol) but i wouldnt buy it with my own money if i coulld afford it.

Therefore uncool for me

The organ people? Does it play nice tunes now?

I'm with kb's basic rule of supercars and agree that explaining who they are and justifying the price is all uncool as well.

Stonking performance, scary figures and we'd all leap at playing with one at someone else's expense but it doesn't even threaten being cool.

It does make a nice noise that V8, well it does in the Volvos anyway

This. A current day supercar (and many older ones) are never cool.

Anyway Noble's are just bloody kit cars built at the factory

The train :(

I've gone sub zero, just because I can't imagine ever owning one - does that make sense to anyone?

Lol. fair point, I can barely imagine sitting in one of those but then again, I sat in a Gtv quite a lot too and those are cool.

I have confused myself. Again. Is it tomorrow we are having tea with the vicar?
