I don't like it, it might grow on me later though.

It gets 75% - if they did a better job with the headlights it would be instant 100% subzero. A car with these classic lines needs round head lights

Cool. I didn't like it when the official pictures came out. Then, I saw the video of the Alubeam car in motion and loved it...but not enough for it to be subzero.

How the hell did they forget to put round headlights? That is just ridiculous.

Yeah, the round head-lights would move it from uncool to subzero for me.

Cool, not sure about the last 1/3 of the car and the rear. But love the gullwing doors and the technical/material specs

Round headlights definitely completes the retro look. For more of a modern look I would extend the headlights all the way downwards deleting the air duct.
