What do you think of the new VY SS ?

Not sure if this question has been covered before ?

At first I thought it was damned ugly, but it's one of those cars that grows on you, esp. when you see them in the flesh. I have seen a few of the new green ones (Hothouse I think) and I must admit, I really like the look of them. Even that strange back looks less ugly after a while.

Don't get me wrong, I think the BA XR's are awesome looking, and are easily the superior car all round - but I can't stop thinking that I also like the new SS. The inside is hideous though.

That bright green suits it - I also like the new lights with the little round light on the bottom.

Anyone else think the same, or do you all hate it !!!

I thought they looked like crap too, until i saw one in black the other day on the way to work... You are right Kiwi, they do grow on you after a while. (But then again so do warts :p )

The VY SS ute looks horn though...

I'm a true BA xr man , but i saw a black VYSS straight out the show room that had been taken to pedders and dumped on its guts. Looks pretty tough. Still much rather spend me money on a turb xr6 though.

Guys - punctuation is a good thing! I can't understand half the stuff you're saying!

True Hobbes, I almost ran out of breath reading that sentence ... This is not a "Let's bag the crap out of the VY" thread, let's be productive here please Sure it's not everyones cup of tea, there must be something you like about it...

I agree with FatBoy.. the SS ute looks nice because it loses that rear end (IMO the downfall of the VY range) The front is growing on me every time I see one, looks agressive although I'll have a XR8 anyday

As a FORD FANATIC.. i think the VY SS is a goodlooking car...
quite a menacing front end and the rear end grew on me heaps. Overall a good package.

I do not like the lower spec models though.... at all.

I hated the Vy when I saw it but other then the executive I think they look quite sharp now. The SS in Silver or Phantom is the pick but I would put Berlina tail lights on it! Still from what I have heard so far the XR8 is a better performance package
