    I haven't seen any other real life pics of this car. I guess going back to the bar was the best decision after all.

    Really looks good in the real world. Such a shame that they didn't put an engine to back up the styling.

    Has a strong 'hastily cobbled movie prop' look to it.

    While it looks nice, Its not worth the money they are asking for it. I would rather pick up a used 850i

    It has eye appeal to it. My wife who isn't a car person thinks it looks great and I had to promise her that if we win the lottery she can buy one with the Munich pickup
