What does it look like? Good question.....
According to the press kit, it is bold, passionate and

My own opinion, personal and subjective: I see elements of VW?s
Concept One, the old Nissan Figaro show car from years back, and a
front end oddly reminiscent of a thirties Chrysler Airflow.
This is a love it or hate it design. Once pictures start appearing
in the press, it would be interesting to hear what you people think.
