If you put a fixed roof on the XLR, it would look much better than this.
You're certainly welcome to your opinion but I definately disagree. This thing (whatever it is) actually has some graceful lines to it. More like the Sixteen than the XLR. Styling is always very subjective and for me, this looks very nice. Almost Aston Martin Vanquish meets Cadillac Sixteen?
It's featured in the news section of Motor Trend. According to Motor Trend Lutz really wants this car. It's supposedly going to have that V12 from the Cien or a higher out S/C 4.4 V8. The picture is supposedly a full size clay mock up. Whatever it is they better give it a real name, not ULC or something. Eldorado and Coupe Deville have nice rings to them.
Although I love the idea of an ultralux, fixed-roof coupe, I sure as hell hope this isn't the final product. It has an extremely preliminary look to it, almost like a first or second draft, and the details don't appear to have been completely worked out.
Admittedly the images are unclear, but even so the front appears curiously chunky and unfinished, the sides look nondescript, and the back end just sort of fades away. Back to the drawing board!!
If I can't have the Sixteen, this is looking to be a very nice compromise.
The back end could use a little refining (I think the lines are headed in the right direction, but the car just looks a little saggy in the back), but I like the exhaust tips, if they're going to be integrated into the rear like that. Rather, they *should* be integrated into the rear bumper, like so:
