I remember that people voted the Pontiac Aztec the ugliest car at one point. It might actually look better than the Senna from the side....

Nonsense. There is nothing uglier than the Pontiac Aztec, followed closely by the Chevy Avalanche. To compare the Senna to the Aztec is blasphemy.

I don't know, I would throw the AMC Pacer in there for a contender!

I kinda like the Senna. It is so ungainly they must've known what they're doing. Either that or it is one of those "trust me, it looks better in person" kinda cars. I also liked the Gumpert Apollo though, and I see a passing resemblance.

Couldn't have anything to do with that burnt-orange paint job could it?

I agree with the subjective observations of our members.

It's too bad for a halo model Mclaren to lack the aesthetics of the F1 or P1 - where is Gordon Murry when you need him.

No, I think it is the roof scoop, roofline, and visual dominance of the intakes over everything else. In my mind, I think of the blue Gumpert when I hear the name since that was my desktop background back when

I doubt my wife would wear a short skirt in that car................
For those few that are lucky enough to get one I have a feeling it will only go up in value unlike most other McLarens. I love that McLaren is pushing the envelope. I liked it back when I first saw it and like it better today.

I thought about that but when it came out it was actually very daring. Rarely did AMC make anything attractive, with the possible exception of the Javelin (depending on your taste).
