Reminds me of the day when my sister bought a new black and gold 1977 Pontiac Trans Am that was done exactly like the Smokey and the Bandit movie....

There are quite a few here for sale and they do not seem to be that popular. One BMW dealer even removed all the exterior details and after that reactivated the ad, which now just make it a pure black sapphire car. I am personally not so attracted by those "golden" accents, but if I must choose something similar, I'd take the MANHART version any day.

Personally, I think if they replaced the gold with bronze it would be far more attractive. That color gold makes it look cartoonish.

Looks incredibly tacky with all those gold accents.

"This was a special market requirement"?

Which market was that? (not to be too snarky)

This guy is a car designer? The pronounced frozen Black and frozen Gold cheapen the car's looks.
