You can tell that's a V8 Mustang GT right off the bat; those are the 18" wheels optional on the GT. The V6 has 16" alloys standard with 17" as an option, while the GT has 17" standard.

I can understand the Mitsubishi Eclipse being in that company, but not the Honda Civic coupe.

It has great proportions but the the side creases and beltline details mess it up some. Doesn't it seem that Hyundai comes up with a lot of good design themes but then screws up with the details (think of the big crease down the side of the Elantra)?

Here's a more conventional rear side window. Sorry... just a quick chop.

Maybe too conventional?

I'm not sure, but I think the back windshield looks a bit too big... and ends mup making this car looking like a hatchback?

Anyway, it doesn't have the same amount of presence as when it was covered with camo.

Heck, I'm just glad to finally see uncovered pics. Whatever your opinion of it is (I'm surprised how bland it appears in the pictures; probably just the color/angle), it's something to hold us over until it really does get revealed.

With all the spy pics on the internet, you'd think everyone there obviously knew what that car was.

Here's another chop with front wheel pushed out 3 inches forward. + the normal side window.

Many posters are saying that the sag in the side window is detrimental to the overall look of BK because it breaks the flow. LOL.
I would say you don't know a thing about the car styling or you are short sighted.
Have you ever noticed how the head lights and taillights are shaped?
Stand back and take a good look at it. The sag is actually harmonious with the entire look of the car. It is the signature of this car to be different. Without it you may also want to vomit because it looks so plain and boring.

While I don't agree that it would be vomit inducing without the dip I do agree that the dip is an interesting detail, and I hope Hyundai doesn't remove it.

I'm a bit relieved, actually. The official sketch of the show car looked terrible. The actual car looks pretty good. The "sag" looks like more of a natural end to the front diagonal crease then just a sag. It a little challenging - a bit like the FIAT Coupe from the '90s which I loved.
