The rear flares look ridiculous. Way too wide, disproportionate to the rest of the car in a really bad way.

I'm usually not a hater, and I can appreciate all that has gone unto this car, but damn those rear fenders are not good at all.

The hood appears to be badly misaligned too.

I like it! Interesting front grill. A little too wide for me too but very well done. Also like the front chin spoiler a lot

Well pimp my ride. More attention should have been paid to the rear of the car instead of the rear fender flairs.

Should be a big hit with these guys. especially the color.

Not bad. It's SEMA it's supposed to be over the top. Can't wait for folks to photo shop it different colors.

I think you guys did a great job, for what it is and given the amount of time you had. Sure I would go with a different color.....like AW, but it's a show car meant to stand out in a crowd and say "look at me". I like your thinking on the rear lower facia. With some refinement, I think that could be cool. Also, a very interesting treatment on the lights and "grill" in the front. I would tend to maintain the black but I really like the led lights and how they tie into the headlamps. Definitely I would do different wheels, but again, it's a show car. Great imagination implementation!

Not my cup of tea. But it looks like some good work went into it.

I'm hoping two things: that the OP was serious about good or bad feedback, and that the car color is either photoshopped, or plasti-dipped. Otherwise, I agree with above, not good on wheel design and not good on color. jmo
