Check out the $3.4M Lykan and all the C7 similarities.

I see approximately zero similarities. To me, it looks like a cross between a Lamborghini Aventador and a McLaren P1.

Errrr...if by similarities you mean they both have 4 wheels, 2 doors, a motor of some sort and are used to transport human beings, then yes, I see several similarities.

Just 7 Lykans will be built, and the company says it already has hundreds of requests for them from around the world.

I call massive bullshit on that! I'm very up on the latest automotive stuff, and have never seen or hear of this car. Not one of those pictures is a real car. They are all renders.

This being posted by Fox News may explain a lot....

Well . . . it's time to eat crow. It was at the 2013 Qatar Motor Show. A quick Google search figured that out.

There were articles on Motor Authority, Autoblog, TopSpeed, and WorldCarFans.

But . . . There is absolutely NO resemblance to the C7!

Of course not! The LAPD really is going to buy 1,000 jet packs and Hillary Clinton faked her concussion... and there's a B-24 bomber on the moon...

I agree though, there are very slight simularities to the sideswipe concept.

BTW does anyone else find the pic of 3 of them watching tv a little odd?

Came out 2 days ago. That explains why I hadn't seen it. And it's at the Qatar Motor Show...not exactly a widely covered event.

Still, I call BS of the figures they are giving.

The more I look at it the less I like the tail lights, it looks like a re-skin of last year's model and clearly the billionaire youth market will not be impressed. I will wait until I see it in person to decide if I am going to buy one. I will waive getting the $200,000 Cyrus Klepcys watch that comes with it and keep my Timex for now.
