Looks like Lotus Elise meets Opel Speedster. Even though those two are close engouh mechanically as is. But it doesn't look too bad, but there aren't many redeeming qualities about it either. Overall just an average minimalist car, if there is such a thing.

exterior is styling and neat but interior looks like a 50s car

I think It was said to be true racecar, so its quite uncomfortable and ascetic.<p>it would be nice to have this kind of car in to production, but If they really would build it here, it would cost very much, and it would have to be toned down and made it more like a streetcar (different suspencion, etc..)
