Front looks a touch koenigsegg which looks good, not keen on the 360 style rear though and the light panel needs a bit of work - could just be the photos.

Haha, nice AW, the blue MR2 is fitted with a Le Mans Noble kit, it's actually for sale as we speak but I have no cash to bring it over form the UK, I'd love to make molds of the kit though.

Shit, thats the first thing i've seen on stancenation that doesn't look retarded. It still looks like it'd go around corners.

Found this on the internet, thought it looked cool - although I would never use that wheel colour, or use stickers on my WINDSCREEN!!!...

EDIT: Actually, this car reminds me of this. LOL.

Saw this, really like the look of it - it may be just a tad impractical

EDIT: I just found some other shots of this car.
