    same size and wheel base etc as Cien,
    this is my own design, no such mid-engine concept car.
    like it?

    in 1985 Buick made a "WILDCAT II" mid-engine supercar concept,
    so its been done before, could this be a "WILDCAT III"?

    I think its better as an XJ8. Some similarities with the XJ220.
    Pretty nice tho.
    And yes... a concept Buick would never product.

    VERY nice, but i think the side intake should hae darker bars as opposed to chrome ones.

    I agree that would make the car look way meaner etc, but the reason I put the chrome there was because not many supercars have huge chrome intakes (or much chrome at all like this car) to set it apart from all other supercars for being different and being a chromed up Buick.
    I don't get into supercars, like lambo's etc cos their gay, but I'd like to see someone build one that has some class rather than just trying to look fast with vents all over them and big spoilers etc

    funny! i guess its cos I know 2 people that have 3 brand new lambo's and a few Ferraris between them and they are co*ksucka's cos they just bought them for attention and to try and give themselves some sex appeal.
    Actually one of them took his Ferrari to an "ALL AMERICAN CAR DAY" and drove through it with the top off/down(?) and it was really funny.
    people over here know they are fast etc but look at them and point at the owners and laugh.
    American cars like vettes and vipers are different cos you can get out of one in a busy street and not feel like a d*ck.
    In fact people will come up to you and say "now thats a car"
