Too bad the rear end of those things are ugly as sin.

At least the CL65 and 612 from Benz and Ferrari are good looking cars.

The specs are impressive -- as will be the sticker price when announced.

Just don't think they're worth it.

That said, it's a decent looking car. Must have snuck it through BMW Design while Chris Bangle was on vacation...

Price tag-- ~$100k. Ouch.

That is too much damned money.

And...the car looks better because BMW AG kicked Bangle upstairs to STFU-land.

Beautiful car no doubt but those performance specs are interesting, one would expect that a 500+ horsepower V10 would move that BMW to 60 faster than that. I wonder if the owner would be happy to have my GTO next to him all the way to his limiter!! LOL

Better (meaner looking) than the std 645, but still looking much, much too busy and overdone, seemingly the result of someone who really wanted to be different but hadn't figured out how to do it in good taste. With virtually identical proportions and straightline performance not too far off, the Pontiac is quite noteworthy and considering the kind of money being asked . . . GTO all the way!

Considering the M6 will cost ~$100k, our Holdens seem a great performance bargain indeed.

It is a great looking car as it should be for that kind of dough, but you can't beat the Goat bang for the buck. I've got to agree with JMVorbeck, if I paid $100,000 and saw something for $30,000 anywhere close to me at the end of the race, I'd be a little upset.
