    Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparkle Motion.

    This is the car from Twilight, right?

    Sparkles aside, is that seriously a Benz? From the side it reminds me of any generic early 90s convertible… Yeck.

    I took a couple of (BW) pictures when it was exhibited in Osaka last winter:

    It really is as hideous/cool as it seems.

    Uh, kind of missing the point. This is no longer a car, it is an expression of neurosis: “look at meeeeeeeee….”

    Hohum, they were pretty generic-looking in the ninties. This one sure isn’t, but there’s gotta be a better way of differentiating yourself from the crowd.

    Fugly. It has the same aesthetic effect as a fake breasted blond stripper from Las Vegas. I can respect the idea it was executed right but the size of the crystals are a little too large and the glittery rainbow effect looks like mylar gift wrapping. If they went with smaller crystals it could have been reminiscent of that special ‘liquid metal’ paint job that one of those high end benz’s has.
