Panoz Abruzzi Spirit of LeMans

Looking more like the next incarnation of the Batmobile than a sports car for the road is American automaker Panoz's newest creation, the Abruzzi Spirit of LeMans. While its unfortunate looks are in the name of function and performance, we simply cannot get over the fact that it seems as if it had been modeled in the likeness of a Black & Decker Dustbuster. Given Panoz's history of participating in LeMans and ALMS racing, and that the Abruzzi is powered by a 600+ horsepower engine, we've got no doubts that it'll be blindingly quick. It's just a shame that it's also blindingly ugly.
