Gillet Vertigo .5 Spirit

I'm going to say something controversial here... I think the Vertigo is rather a handsome little thing.
Belgium's latest supercar (there's a phrase you don't hear very often) has been squarely at the thick end of a comprehensive panning from all angles of late, but I'd like to leap to its defence. OK, it's a little awkward from certain angles, but the overall shape is cohesive and attractive. Furthermore, there's a 420bhp Maserati 4.2-litre V8 under the bonnet, powering a car with an overall weight of just 950kg. What's not to like?
(Well, the £200k price tag, maybe.)
