I love beautiful cars, and the coupes tend to be the most beautiful cars. And those with nostalgic details I like even more. This concept is a beautiful nostalgic coupe. With all the tech to face the future: electric powerplant, autonomous tech.
































Love the simplicity of the lines.. the profile... the details. Is a great design exercise.

Looks great. Reminds me not only of the stunning 504 Coupe, but also of the 504 Saloon and 505 with their 'serious' faces.



Also this front end is a bit like the one on Nissan IDx Concept, but it's not a bad thing (remember, Nissan, you had a chance to build a cool looking production coupe).

You know, I actually like it. Nice to see something different.

Not sure about the seats, but otherwise I like it.

Absolutely stunning! This instantly reminded me of the Mercedes 230sl from the late sixties/early seventies which I adore.

Not super fond of the interior...the blue “tub” look reminds me of my moms foot soaker/massager thing lol. But that’s probably due to the colour. The production version would likely be tamed down. Great design, bring it on!

I don't even mind the interior color, I think they just went too retro with the look of the seats.

This is one of the best looking retro-concept vehicles by any manufacturers in years. This coming from a fan of BMW's many retro-concepts. I love the exterior design and the proportions are spot-on.

This one's profile reminded me immediately of the e9 BMW 3.0CS, one of my favorite '70s production coupes. Disclaimer: I once owned the classically beautiful Alfa Romeo 2000GTV; rust never sleeps.

One thing, though. Ford is on the line. They want their Mustang taillights back.

Wow, that's refreshing. It helps that it's not bulky and bloated like most modern cars are. Look how skinny the a-pillar is.
It's funny how design always seems to be circling back to the past. What is refreshing to me is the more traditional roofline as opposed to everything else being a fastback. The rest of the design is also very nice, but put a fastback roof on it and.... Zzzzzzzzzzzzz....

The original Peugeot 504 Coupe was designed by Pininfarina... and, maybe, this guy was a Mustang fan and stole the idea...

That is one of the most beautiful details of the car: the A-Pillar. But I suspect is too thin for a production form. Another detail about that A-Pillar is that are, in fact, two A-pillars: one in the upper side of the door and the other placed forward, in black, allowing the windshield to look enveloping. Very ingenious and of an incredible beauty.
