Still, nice novelty car.
Pagani seemingly appeared in the marketplace and started making supercars. Koenigsegg too. They are both credible manufacturers in my eyes. Lexus has done the same thing.

True, to a certain degree. The thing about Pagani and Koenigsegg are, they ONLY built supercars. That gave them that prestige of being a supercar maker. Lexus, on the otherhand, has always been known as the higher-class versions of the economical Toyota.


Its similar to Chrysler trying to create a supercar, and then charging $400k for it. They never had that supercar prestige from the start like Pagani and Koenigsegg did.

Come on, you cant build this alongside a $30,000 Camry and expect people to not raise the brand issue.

If it would have, Germany might have won the war.

At this event there were MANY Lambos and Ferraris in the same parking lot. Let me tell you, this car had more people standing around than other exotic cars. Being that it's VERY exclusive, I would love to own one.
