The windshield of this machine is, in fact,continuation of the body. Due to this, the passenger gets the impression that he is not inside the car, but in an airplane. The rear part of the body was decided to perform in cubic form. Another design is interesting in that the rear and front parts seem to be independent of each other. However, despite this feature, the car looks very harmonious. Designers managed to visually combine the two halves of the middle line, which seems to encircle this model along the lower edge of the glass, the edge of the doors, headlights, wings and radiator chrome grating.
