Like it but hate it at the same time!

Hate how it looks... what a horrible way to ruin a classic 240Z.

Like what they have done performance wise though.

The wing and front end ruin it, too over the top / modern for the classic lines of the z.

Looks like they were trying very hard to turn it into an 80s Porsche race car-- a lot of the styling cues are from the 935.

The only thing that ruins it for me is the engine. Needs a Nissan 4-pot with turbo the size of a small fridge, then I'd rock it.

Lots of fast, loud things.

I could live with the wing so long as it were almost exclusively used on the track. On the street, it's just retarded.

boo on the motor and the wing...everything else is sex in my opinion.

although that is agreeable with what simba said, if on track...then the wing is a bit acceptable...a bit...

I hate the engine, tranny, wing, and I found the tail lights extra insulting to my eyes.
