Default GXP = Rice?

Based on another topic, i'm curious as to other peoples definition of rice and would you consider the GXP to be rice?

My definition of rice:

Obviously slow vehicles made to look fast in a rediculous and often distateful way with more money pumped into wild asthetics than performance.

Fast cars with added styling are not rice IMO.

I'm pretty sure that nothing on the GXP warrants it to have a rice label, what do you guys think?

Definitely not rice.

For the most part, the GXP is almost perfect in terms of styling, IMO.

GXP is perfectly fine in every way. However, the SSR is another story.
