Never been into Jap cars although that looks very good and I have only heard good things about Lexus.

None of the pictures give a clear, overall view. Looks OK from what we can see so far.

The bonnet looks a bit bulky in the middle. In my opinion the same bulge in the bonnet spoiled the SC430s styling.

Don't know on the cost, less than an M3 obviously and as for the auto well its about as good as it gets. I don't think its going to be a real seat of the pants drive more a very quick luxury car.

A luxo barge some might call it. coffee.gifgrin.gif

Just heard there will definitely only be 200 coming into the UK, priced around £50K, fully laden, expect no options list.....the pearlescent gunmetalish grey sounds much nicer than the electric blue.. sekret.gif

Apparently it is also rumoured that the NASCAR gentleman who will be doing final testing in Spain says this is to be a very special car...allegedly!!

I wish this would hurry the hell up and arrive already. I think it might end up being pretty darn good. If its even close to the M3 or RS4 I think a lot of people will be surprised. I live in hope. grin.gif
