i like it but, IMO, its lacking the trade mark altezzas, hence the name Altezza, not to mention the circle tail lights. frown

It does NOT need Altezzas. Altezzas = rice. It looks very good as it is.

It does look like the tC from the side view...but it looks completely different from the front view. Also, I think Sicon is releasing a new concept at the New York Auto Show...it's called the t2B or something.

Base 250 is 201 hp and 184 tq according to my autoweek. The 3.5 L will produce 300 hp and have a 0-60 in the low 5 range compared to the old IS300's 6.8. V8 powered 430 doesnt say???
