Why on Earth do you people think it's ugly? I wouldn't say it's a thing of beauty, but it's no worse looking than the aferage production car on the roads - including the Mustang it was created from.

Care to explain why you think so? (Leaving out the color of the paint, of course.)

Can you honestly say it's uglier than this: https://scontent.xx.fbcdn.net/hphoto...2f&oe=5630E2A6 (Nissan Juke). this http://www.fiatusa.com/assets/images...rt-184x130.png (Fiat 500), this https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...t_20100508.jpg (Mini Clubman), or this https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...8_Scion_xB.jpg (Scion xB), to name just a few off the top of my head.
