    This car is nice looking, but it’s in desperate need of a refresh. That interior is so dated it hurts.

  • CarCzarDesigner

    The decal graphics on this remind me of labeling found on a bag of rolled oats.

  • That’s a random limited edition model, and for a cafe racer tribute, lacking the pace for it.

  • CADOX

    They could’ve at least made sure the central armrest’s colour matches the seats. PSA is so cheap.

  • I’m sorry but how this car has any connection to cafe racers is beyond me. For starters…it’s a car! Then what’s with the bad graphics? and then there’s the fact that it has 2 wheels too many..oh yeah it’s a car not a motorcycle, what was I thinking?!

    No. Just no.
