Completely agree with you! The design is a perfect blend of aggressive and silky smooth. Extreme eye candy!

IMO they haven't built an ugly car in modern times yet. Maybe a bit to conservative a bland, but not ugly. We will see, there is always a first time for everything as they say.

We are obviously a bit biased, but I agree. Other than the 90s 8 series cars the F80s are my favorites look wise from BMW.

Nope, at least you sit on the inside. One could always walk up to their car from the rear I suppose.

The four series concept looks pretty good esp from the rear.

I for one think give credit to the M division for making this new M3 looking totally different from the bland 3 series. Spice up things in life.

I see a little I8 from the back a good thing, the front not sure what they are thinking, not so much.

It does look a little crazy now, but I bet when we start to see them in the wild our opinions will change.

That's gotta be the ugliest front end I've ever seen. It looks like a pigs face with a big goofy smile! Once you see the face, you can't unsee it. No way I'd buy that.

No, it doesn't.

Shame, except for the grill/bumper it's a damn sexy concept.

When the audi first cam out with the gaping maw I hated it. Then I got used to it and accepted it.
However, you can get used to just about any misfortune in life, but that does not make it a good thing.
I'm seeing the resale value of my F80 going up in a couple of years.
