The Porsche Panerama called. They want their rear end back.

And 8 exhaust pipes? WTF were they thinking?

And yes, this is exactly what the Russians would buy.

The front was nice. Too much aluminium. And honestly, I'd rather get an Audi A8 W12 than this. Or a RR Silver Ghost. Or a Bentley Continental GT. Even a Toyota Century. Or dare I say it, a Hyundai Equus before I get this thing.

Front for some reason reminds me of 1 series Bimmer, probably the shape. I actually like the interior, but the exterior is meh.....it is good though they have finished with a trillion version of Veyron....

I actually think as a design its quite attractive.

Overall the style is coherent - The chrominium showcases the contours of the design brilliantly. The interior while not my cup of tea is simple and elegent - and honestly the signature is something the target market would go mental for.

The exhaust pipes are a little over the top - however there is a chance they are function WITH form - with an undoubtedly massive engine it may well breathe better like this.

I find (if a fair bit of faff) the statement showcases quite accurately why the designers went with specific details over potentially more exciting details.

Overall I think its quite beautiful - It serves its purpose and should look quite nice driving around Monte Carlo

I like it, providing i could changed that horrible 'polished aluminium. The back is everything the Panamera isn't, well designed. It reminds me of the Altea rear lights, but that is a good thing, the front lights inner detail is really great, i wish that could be maintained in the production car, the inside is great, i'd love to see it with carbon fiber inserts instead of wood, or brilliant black. The i-pod style cluster is a really nice touch to, just not so sure about the center intruments. I also find that 800Hp is adequate, to quote another famous brand.

Exactly like big Bentleys and Masers this should be a car to cross countries at an awesome rate of speed.

This will surely be very expensive, and I'm not too sure whether I want it over an RR Ghost or even an Aston Martin Rapide. I mean, comfort wise, I'm not sure if it'll be any more comfortable than the Ghost, and style wise... well, other than the blunt front of the Rapide, I'm not sure if the Galibier that much better looking either. Quality/craftsmanship wise, the Aston or the RR can hardly be considered as bad.

I think the only redeeming feature of the car would be it's exclusivity, and it's distinctive detailing. Which I actually like a lot.

i dunno, it's like that new HSV VE series - looks like shit but doesn't have to. when your supposed multimillion dollar redesign can be vastly improved by some chimps on the internet with access to MS paint, you know you've got a problem

It's a better attempt at what the Porsche Panamera tried to accomplish, but the lack of trunk really hurts it from certain angles.

Ayn Rand called. She would like you to stop saying that and instead, embrace individualism.

Interestingly, I can see the basic plot line of The Fountainhead being played out in this story. We have the young upstart design - the premium hatchback. Some love it, but most deride them as sacrilegious to their respective makers. However, the new breed of designer, one who refuses to follow the norms laid out in design school, continues this new trend much to the chagrin of his/her peers. Yet, over time, the designs end up growing better and better as we shed our preconceived notions and embrace the new school of design. Insert pathetic love story, terrorism, and a man who makes Howard Huges look normal, and bam, instant classic.
