To my mind any time you can spend $100,000 or more on a super car, it’s clearly an emotional decision. It’s hard to rationalize an expenditure of that magnitude on, say, a Bentley, when a Chevy Cobalt will get you to the grocery store just as easily. Sure, it’s not as fast or luxurious, but it handles the task. So if emotion drives high-dollar car purchases, the car needs to appeal to more than just practicality. I cannot get excited about this car. Sure, it’s got a gazillion horsepower V12, UNIQUE styling and limited production numbers. It’s hand built…you can see machining marks to prove it. It’s fast, exclusive and expensive enough to prove you’ve made it.

But, the name is ugly, the styling isn’t Aston Martin gorgeous, and it may have 700 horsepower, but it’s not gonna compete with the ultra-fast top end cars, nor will it compete with the ultra handling cars. So what’s it really good for? [via One-77]
