Umm, does look nice apart from the 407 style grill.
From the headlights back as you say it's a Cougar even down to the quarter lights and the wing mirrors 8)

Renault must have invested in some tracing paper, I've never seen a car look so similar to the cat. It is very nice though.... Is that 100% what the finished product will look like???

There are some bits that I like about the styling of the laguna coupe - the lamps for instance - but it looks less like the cougar when you view it from other angle - from the back it looks, well it looks like the laguna

Pretty car, but i doubt it will look that good if it makes it into production.

I'm still far more enticed by the prospect of a RWD Hyundai Coupe with 300hp

I think Renault bring out some models that look very much like their concepts, unlike Fraud.

but the looks of the HCD8 concept was a real head turner in my opinion

There are even rumours of a V8 version (dribble).

From what I was reading in the TopGear magazine, the Laguna Coupe ain't going into production, the TopGear guys thought that was madness...
[so watch this space]

little bit of DB-9 going on at the back methinks

DB9 is a lot sexier - if you can say that about a car :LOL:

Yeh, i went passed an audi R8 today and it was the first time i had seen one inthe flesh and it certainly caught my eye. Was a boring silver colour :wink: but still looked good. I just love the LED lights they have 8)
