I'm used to the idea that I'm going to make my cars look uglier through liberal application of duct tape, coroplast, cardboard, plus maybe some sheet aluminum and poorly made fiberglass add-ons.

With this Clarity, Honda's done all the work for me! Pre-uglification!

I might accidentally make it better by covering up parts of it!

It's like Bumble Bee got stuck mid-transformation on his way to becoming a Tesla S and Honda said "too late to turn back now boys, just go with it"

More important: what are the numbers? Is all that ugly aerodynamic?

Unfortunately ugly does matter. Nobody is going to buy that thing at a normal list price regardless of what it can do.
