Is this cool, uncool, seriously uncool, or sub zero?

Cool, even though it would end up on the uncool wall.

They're nice from a design perspective. I'd say giant hanging wall art of track maps isn't really my thing, but the coasters are cool.

If I ran a high-end indie garage that catered to European cars, I'd definitely order a couple of the sculptures.

(This is a good idea for a thread.)

Cool, or just more mid-life crisis garbage?
Sidenote, it does look like something Batman would drive.

Polaris slingshot! I actually want to test drive one of these. Much much cooler than the CanAm Spyder. That said I can't place it much higher than cool without actually seeing one up close.

That body seems kind of overwrought...it makes me feel like the designer of the current Camero sat in at BMW when they were creating it? I dunno. It's probably the squareness of the headlights.

There are quite a few things like that, the stripes are more muscle car than BMW too. The rear on the other hand really seems to be modeled after the 911. Strange choices. I don't hate it, but it's odd.

The body panel above the rear wheel looks like an elf ear.

I really liked the 3.0 homage when I saw it in BMW racing livery. I can see your point in the camaro/muscle car aping, but I don't really take that away when I look at it. It sort of goes with their new design direction, like the i8. I think it's cool as hell

Just a fan concept, but I thought it was pretty cool looking.

Provisionally Cool, with potential movement in either direction based on technical specs.

In terms of pulling off a modernized retro-70s look, Ford just drank Toyota's whole milkshake.

Edit: Oh, it's a fan concept? Damn it to hell. I've seen that other places and never realized it wasn't the real thing.

Yep, totally not real, even though a Bronco marketed correctly that looked like this would sell well enough. Especially considering out short sighted ways with fuel prices. "Hey gas is kinda cheap again, I need an SUV now! What do you mean they don't make Hummers anymore? "
