Tokyo Auto Salon 2010: ARK Design Butchers 370Z Converible

ARK fuses ultra-modern Z lines with some retro-inspired Mercedes SLS style

 |  Jan 15 2010, 11:10 AM


We’re not too sure what to think of this 370Z Convertible. Scratch that, we know exactly what we think of this butchered 370Z. When the newest Z debuted we immediately fell in love with its progressive lines and remarked how, unlike its predecessor, it looked purpose built to be a convertible.

As for the ARK Design vehicle, it just doesn’t seem to work at all. The complete aero kit looks somewhere between Nissan’s ulra-cool URGE Concept and the newly-released Mercedes-Benz SLS retro supercar. The modern and retro designs just don’t seem to work together at all.

But don’t listen to us. Tell us what you think.
