From time to time people post on here wrapped and modded cars, particularly Maserati’s that offend them, but are there any cars that offend you straight out of the showroom.
For me it has to be Honda Civic Type R’s the one that looks like a jet fighter, fully loaded with spoilers, splitters fake air intakes etc etc.
Every time I see one I shake my head and think bad things about the driver.

Agree totally. Guy had one on our camp site. Was at pub one day. Long story short, short discussion, his car was quicker blah blah, my repost, just another Honda. He must have been 60 too!

My first thought was 'Any small Nissan!
But the top award for over design is the Toyota C-HR. The designers clearly had too much time adding bits. OOOH the lights need more umph, add a spoiler, and a boot spoiler , now a splitter..rear door handles way out of reach of children and small adults and put it in the C-Pillar! Yes now more rear lights...
If you are behind one at the lights work out where the boot opening is...

Agree with both Honda Civic R and Evoque Cab but I have an issue with retro cars, almost without exception any manufacturer trying to replay their back catalogue revamped for the modern world. Jaguar S Type, Fiat 500, Dodge Challenger, BMWQ Maxi (Mini), every Morgan etc. the one exception ( and I don't know why) is the BMW Z8 it harks back to the stunningly styled 507 but somehow seems to carry it and be modern at the same time. Never driven one so can't comment how it drives but I quite like it

100% with you the latest Civic is horrid but add Type R and it's a ridiculous looking thing. Think the had a bet how many scouts, spoilers and air ducts they could get on one car......Then charge over 30k for the thing.

The latest Grills on BMW's. The latest 7 one is just huge and the X5 etc just looks too big. BMW's used to be stylish. Not any more......The worst is to come though with the 4 series concept 90% ready in the picture below. Let's hope the final 10% is the grill although I fear from BMW's comments it's not. Shame as the car itself looks OK.
