    I cannot wait to see this car and drive it. If its anywhere near as good as the 406 I'll be getting one as a company car.

    I love it! Should handle well too with that new double wishbone front/multi link rear suspension set up.

    why do the last 3/4 of that car remind me of a holden monaro??

    Otherwise, its ok, 406coupe stands out more though (in a good way)

    You're right, the rear lights and the wheels look almost the same

    I guess with a coupe THAT big there is only so much you can do with the design, maybe it's a "lion" thing?

    Maybe the absence of rear doors does it.

    i'm still in two minds about the front end of a 407, even after seeing many of them in the flesh now.

    for my mind aston martin does a much better, though similar front end on the DB's

    the front of the 407 was designd to be more pedestrian frendly, u know when they think the road is a foot path. the grill is biga then the sedans and thats big enuf too accomidate a small child if it got in the cars way!! but i always thought the front suited the coupe better than the sedan
    i speed up for round abouts,corners and chikanes
