    Dont like it overall, but I really think that the idea is there.

    however a 1.5l v6... WTF!

    Just reproduce a 1.6l I4 that gets 45 mpg like the ones from the early 90s

    stupid engineers.

    It's not a V6... read the description in the 2nd picture!

    I'm sure they had a reason to go with more cylinders. Don't call the engineers stupid!

    One of the reasons I'm sure is the fact that they used a motorcycle engine. It's probably quite a bit more compact (and lighter) than the car-based 1.5L 4 cylinders that they have available to them.

    Werd its a flat 6, not a v6. Small displacement with many cylinders usually means ultra high revving. :)

    If they tone it down a bit for the market it will be great. Imagine taking all of those dramatic lines and softening them down a bit. Nice design.
