That does look good. The New York Auto Show is next week. Those things are going to be all over the streets around here.

It is nice but....... yep here come my daily grumpy comment....... I'm sick of the headlight bling. It's like any new car has to have some flashy headllight shit going on. They are fucking headlights people, so you can see while driving in the dark. Why do they all look like diamond studded pieces of tacky jewelry these days! Yuck!

Well, I love the LED headlamps. Better light on the road, less maintenance, and better from an overall design perspective.

I'm a Ford fan, but would liked this car even if I wasn't. It has a very Audi look to it.

I agree on the LED headlamps being better. I can see why you see them as bling - but that is mainly a product of LED light/reflector design versus Incandescent projector light design. I am getting a little tired of manufacturers trying to outdo each other with LED drl designs though.

I think he retired. I do remember that he brought his VW Passat drawings with him when he left VAG and went back over to Ford though..........

His influence is apparently still there. His best designs have lines like a Shepard & Anderson suit. That car will be lined all up and down Park and Fifth Avenues in two year's time.

It's still a concept car not yet ready for production. I expect the wheels and tires at least will change. Try running low profile tires in NYC and you'll see what I mean.

I doubt that configuration will make it to production.

pretty handy for a 17 yr old.

A ford that looks like a Audi. I think that's what they were going for including the useless LED be-dazzled headlights :)

LEDs are taking over in interior design as well.

Beautiful car.

My pet peeve with LED's is why do you want the headlight to turn off when you have your turn signal on? That doesn't sound safe. Heck I liked on my older Saab when I would be making a turn the marker light shined to the direction I was turning.

I didn't realize LED headlights did this, only the LED DRL's.

It seems on the Audi's I have notice this but it might have been their DRL's but it was at night when I saw this happen. :shrug:
