I'd rather have the 2.27 million than this.

Uh-oh...not good at all. A supercar sells on how powerful it is but mostly by it looks, by how spectacular it is. This fails at that.

I'll have my Speedtail delivered and flip it for 5 million next year.

In a way, it looks very 90s, and reminds me of a modern Jaguar XJ220 / Isdera Commendatore. I just wonder how the engine is going to be cooled since it doesn't seem that there's much airflow into any radiators - the only intake seems to be the front air dam.

Yep. Just wonder when the supercar bubble will eventually burst. The classic car market seems to be already cooling off.

Looks like a 1960's concept to these eyes.

That is stunning. Such a great tear-drop shape. Minimal detailing too. Just screams aero.

Front wheel is odd, but I like it.

Show it in a different color though please.

That is simultaneously unspeakably ugly and pathetically generic looking.

I disagree. The front isn't exactly pretty, but the rest is gorgeous, in a retro-futuristic sort of way. But then, tastes are subjective.

Not sure if any of you have noticed this, but as per link below, I find the adjustable spoiler to be rather interesting. I wonder how they managed to do this without affecting the paint work and integrity of the material. Very nifty touch:

This is the look I would love to see McLaren put into production.
