but there is a niche market in japan for this design, some japanese like funky, toyish designs
But it's not all about only looking... According to the news, it costs about 3,000,000 Japanese Yen in china. Look.. these car will be even cheaper than this DFM's car in Japan...

Integra type R costs 2,730,000 Jp yen

http://toyota.jp/mr-s/grade/grade/index.html

MR-s V edition 2,289,000 jp yen.

Well, when I read this from korean yahoo, it said it's 10% cheaper than its class in Japan. I don't know what car they were comparing to. Perhaps, skyline(is this car RWD?)? hmm...

Anyway, what I want to say... it's not small money for japanese as well and I don't think they would expect only experior aspect....

Not to worry.....

This is a new concept in hybrid vehicles. It uses compressed air to supplement the gas engine. When the spoiler at the rear is pushed downward it collapses the YELLOW BELLOWS and creates a chamber of compressed air. After the pressure is spent the driver knows it because he can't see out the back window anymore, and so he gets out and pushes downward on the spoiler again.......and so it goes.

It's sure to be a big hit with the earth-friendly crowd.
hybrid? The news was saying the car use 2~3ltr Mitz engine... Then, I think we can't expect a good fc with this size of engine compare to other hybrid.
So, is it designed to provide the power of v8 at V6 fc or V6 at v4 fc?

Yeah, it's true... and it's not only in auto industry... Samsung and LG are not doing well over there as well. Actually, they don't pay much attention to Japan as it's the toughest market to foreign comapnies. And it's quite funny while honda have become one of the favorite car maker in other countries, they are not doing well in Japan. It seems like thier brand name is not well treated as in oversea. The market in Japan is quite interesting....

Anyway, you said the car looks very korean.... Are u refering to Hyundai Coupe(http://car.donga.com/board/board.php?bbs=car_news_0901&no=2495&depth=0&page=16&s_work=view)?
