    Not a bad chop, but it seems more truck like than car like.

    Wow, looks great. Love the lip over the rear window... almost looks a bit like a built-in spoiler. Slick! Guess I agree with the truck comments, but it's nicely lowered... close enough for me!

    Doesn't look like it. Looks mostly like parts of the Lambda - Graphyte Concept were re-arranged to give this roofline.

    Like it, but too trucky for me.

    Reshaping the nose a bit could solve the 'truckness' issue. Other than that, it's really very good.
