    Not sure where to put this but there's a 4 minute video from Automotive Mike. From the video you can see that the front vents appear to be fake ) :

    You think so? There's a layer of black paneling after the white door skin ends but you can't see if there's any venting in there or not. I wish the photographer got the other angle so we could see the rear quarter panel, that would definitely give us an answer.

    The hips look great though!

    That's true, at 2:57 you can see the lower part of the vent is a different shade of black? Photographer got so close, yet there's still so much I want to see haha. Fingers crossed though. I wish the guys driving could've stepped on the cars just a little bit harder. The turbo inline 6 sounded so good.

    I agree, loving the rear of the car! That rear valence looks aggressive and the rear hips are looking sharper! Do you still think there's a small chance for a similar spoiler to the one on the FT1 (retractable)?

    Honestly, I have no idea about the spoiler, but considering that we've never seen a mule with the wing up on track or even a cutout in the camo in the shape of a wing, I'm going to have to lean towards there not being one. :(

    That’s what I was leaning towards too here’s to hoping that they are keeping that as a secret and testing that in a closed track in Japan The reason I mention this is because I remember A70 mentioning something about the rear...something like “it’s the little things”. Not sure if it’s maybe the spoiler he was talking about....one can only dream haha

    Nice vid, the part at the gas station looks similar to an earlier short vid, like the wheels and black color, more guessing and speculation...

    Took some screenshots from the video.

    Vent also looks fake to me.

    The vent on the clam hood also looks fake.

    Frameless doors windows.

    The hips look really nice from this angle.

    The front overhang doesn't look that bad that on this one.

    Doesn't the fart sound confirm the use of a DCT?

    The vents may be fake, but you want to know what's real? My enthusiasm for this car :dance:

    It was driving so slowly on the Nords in that last video I wondered if the driver had fallen asleep....

    I’m liking what I’m seeing. Looks very agile, sounds good, looks good, only thing is the fake vents, but I’ll just take a dremel to them if they aren’t functional on the production car

    Nah, a TC auto with fast shifts will still cut ignition and make that noise
