Default Riviera Concept

Talking about the perfect car in the other thread, anyone catch the pics of the new Riviera? I think it looks pretty sweet except for the grille is a bit too high. It reminds me a lot of the Aston Martins which are probably my favorite car today.

If it is built it will only be sold in China. Buicks sell very well there.

sorry, but i dont really like it. it looks kinda cool from side and back views. but only perfect 90 deg views. add an angle to see more than one side and it just looks funny to me. does that make any sense?

Meh.....I dunno, doesn't seem to flow properly. But that is the first car I can recall that looks BETTER with a front license plate than without. The big flat area kinda throws off the front end otherwise.
