Cool photos of new red G35 sedan

Too much red for my taste but it shows some nice lines on this new car. For low $30K with over 300hp with unoffending style, this car will sell. At least it looks tons of better than Lexus IS350.

I think the Lexus IS350 is a really avant guard design unlike this mashup. I don't really like the Lexus grill but the PS of the IS350 with a BMW badge and grill looked hot

I think the IS350 looks better. What is that chrome thing on the trunk lid?

I think the old G and the new IS looks better...the new G's design is not cohesive and that chrome grille and rear CHMSL assembly looks cheap.

if you look at the first picture, you can see the new LS460 in the distance. Car looks great...completely new V8 design, and auto-park feature

I never liked the styling of the G35 sedan. I hated the headlights and the rear was very boring. The coupe was a much better example, but I still didn't like the headlights.

This new G35 actually looks nice. Even though I would prefer the front grille to be toned down a bit, the front end is much better. The rear looks more like the previous G35 coupe, which is a good thing.

Maybe its just me, but the headlights remind me a bit of the Mercedes CLS (also a good thing).

I really like the new look of the G35.

Interestingly, the bottom portion of the G35 front bumper...


reminds me of the bottom portion of the E92 rear bumper...

I like it except for the ugly ass wheels and front grill. But you can easily fix those problems.

have some bad design ideas IMO, the grill, chrome spoiler (or whatever u call that thing)

didnt like the lights as well, prefer the older model...

but in general, not a bad looking car (for a japanese car)...
