Not bad, the rear looks great, the front not so. The Profile seems good, but the 406 coupe looks tons better in my opinion.

It looks vaguely cartoonish to my eyes, with little of the style and elegance that makes the 406 CoupĀ such an attractive car..

That does come to mind.<p>This thing has front overhang for <I>days</I>. Hope no one who drives one of these things has a steep driveway.

No it is not by Pinin.. It is just the designer is a big fan of Pinin's design.

As others posted before, the front overhang is huge, which ruins the side view, and imo the rear is very inelegant.

Go Peugeot. Not bad at all to these eyes. The front overhang is a bit long, but how can that be helped with those pesky pedestrians? It is great just to see a manufacturer trying to do something fresh with a coupe this size. I for one am tired of all the lame excuses we get in America about this segment being dead.

To my eyes the proportions are all wrong, and some of the detailing's poor.<p>When they have to add gimmickry like the 3 "gills" (which are only there to disguise the h-u-g-e overhang), things are pretty desparate.<p>Very disappointing.<br>

Those gills are entirely out of place. Is that an homage to the 907?

It is interresting but It doesn't really have the elegance of the 406... one the nicest cars ever... <br>get pininfarina back to get the job right !!
