Well said and I agree.I've said it before and I'll say it again, not a fan of either design.
The chrome wrapped one does not visually benefit at all from the wrap. I understand they were trying to make it symbolic of "ones reflection" but ultimately the exterior needed to be more well thought and executed. It takes away from the sharp body lines and details that make the Q50 such a stunning car. Perhaps I could have lived with it had the interior been a masterpiece, however it was also a flop IMO. Not a fan of the stripes as I was expecting so much more detail. The stripes look out of place and awkward but hey this is just my opinion. I have never designed a car to be brodcast on a world stage but I can guarantee I would have at least pushed the envelope at bit further. Like c'mon a chrome wrap and stripe down the seats. Pfft!
As far as the Zac Posen car goes, I applaud the details and extent of design on the interior. Not a huge fan of the color but hey its different and well executed. The exterior again falls short IMO. The faded color transitional paint job is nothing new and again lacking the degree of character I was expecting when I first heard about this project.
I'd be willing to bet that there will be several members on here that will ultimately create their own Q50 design which will garner more acclaim from true enthusiasts than either of the above mentioned attempts.
It's like what they said---it's about being bold and unique...at the same time, this project felt like nothing more than an expensive Q50 commercial. I mean, who are actually buying these cars? Are they just for show?The only thing I really like about the Zac Posen Q50 are the red seats. Maybe a black and red styling on the doors too, but other than that, the other red in the interior is overkill for me. I really wish the sport came with a red seat option.
