Looks terrible, nothing like what a Supercar should be. No thanks from me.

LOL! Not as in a Supercar like a Ferrari LaFerrari LOL!

Supercars Championship is an Australian series where the vehicles used are loosely based on road-going, four-door saloons and two-door coupes. All cars must use a 5.0L naturally aspirated V8 engine. Originally only Ford Falcons and Holden Commodores participated. Now a second series has opened up to allow more manufacturers like Mercedes, Nissan, Volvo to participate. And smaller engines with four or six cylinders are allowed.

Exactly, it does not look like a Supercar. For starters, the Falcon was 4 door.

Actually, I thought it looked pretty good in that white/bluecolor-scheme, which was somewhat, but not exactly, like the Shelby (Cobra) Mustangs.

......except that Australia generally doesn't have the type of high-speed Super-speedways (Daytona, Charlotte, Atlanta, Darlington, Indianapolis, etc...) common in the U.S. I actually much prefer classic pedal-to-the-metal super-speedway racing to winding road/track-courses, which, to me are Yawn-Worthy.

The video sucks why didn't they put it round the Bathurst track when the 12 hour race was on as a promotion, and it makes me wonder why Lexus didn't bring any cars out for this race as there were so many international cars and drivers. Also how long did it take to come up with the colour scheme 30 seconds.
