Nice!

You sure it's Detroit? Where are the homeless and trash cans on fire?

I guess I have to see it in person, because that looks really long.

Perhaps it just the longer wheelbase, but to looking at this photo, it looks too long for itself. Perhaps that is why I like the M3 better?

Good lord, is it Photoshopped or just perspective that the car looks so long? In one of the pics it's driving by a Ford super duty or something and looks to be about the same length.

Alright with all the cheap shots. I am surprised no one pointed out that the street whose sign is visible in the background is named after a US Congressman whose wife served a couple years in jail for being involved in a bribery scandal with infamous former Detroit mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick.

Nice to see the car out on the streets at least though. And we know for sure that the show car production car, which is good news indeed. Look forward to taking a close look at it during the show.

Except that white is not a color; its achromatic.
