In my mind second only to the Rapide in the piggly supercar 4door category. Likey.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Oddly, their one size fits all theme seems to work better on the four door than the smaller cars.

I do like the new 1000 kilo Lambo, though. Maybe they could give Lotus design a hand!

Apparently, the only thing variable about this new Variable Vehicle Architecture is the size and width. Everything else is the same.

I really can't tell the difference between the new Elise, Elan, and Espirt but I don't care since they all look the same. I'll take the cheapest one!

Oh good, I thought I was going mad thinking I was seeing the same car in different threads, taken from different angles. Apparently I am not the only one.

It just looks like they have bastardised the designs of other cars out there and then taken photoshop to stretch and squash the vehicles and call them different names...

Amazingly, I can look at any MB or BMW front end and tell you what year or series it is.

In terms of style, the Eterne is what you get when you mate an RX-8 with an Aston Martin...
