    2007 Impala

    did this for a contest...um...elsewhere.

    screw historic/retro styling, this is meant to be uber modern.

    no, i meant that was the point for that particular design. Truth is, i cant make anything with out it looking like something else, i.e. lexus grill, acura headlights, CLS beltline. Everything is taken and out there already. The M45 never even crossed my mind when i did the headlights for this.

    Good execution, but the doors look S-Class-ish and the roofline looks straight off of a CLS.

    It looks good. It kind of looks like that melted bar of soap/melted Taurus Mercedes Benz. What's the name of it again?
