    It's not a real tribute to David Bowie unless it periodically changes, perfectly, and by doing so changes the definition of perfection.

    Can still see an awful lot of GT by Citroën in it. Just a shame it's just a design study and not a working car. That'd be something special.

    Bowie is an amazing singer but I wouldn’t want to touch this one with a ten foot pole.

    I'd like to see production cars with asymmetrical design.

    I think that is a pretty awful looking machine.

    It looks unfinished but with some work this could be a pretty sweet VGT

    Aaarf... I hope it's only a concept car tribute.

    Don't want to see an interpretation of Bowie into a car (good or not).

    David Bowie would be turning in his grave.

    Shouldn’t the left and right headlights be different colours?

    Would he? I can appreciate that you don't like it, and frankly I don't either, but given that it's 3D printed, the prospect of always crashing in the same car just might be less expensive than usual.

    I see what you did there. However, Bowie didn't actually have heterochromia (pity, because I do, albeit a mild case, and I'd love to have such a connection) but a permanently dilated pupil.

    Yes I know his was due to an accident, but his eyes were a slightly different colour.

    In addition, everything I've read indicates that he had two light blue eyes.

    That said, his left may have appeared a darker blue as a result of the dilated pupil and the effect it had on light hitting the surrounding iris. Not only that but, a larger pupil is undoubtedly that much more subject to red-eye when photographed.

    Well, I guess I can't say it doesn't look interesting, even though it's too contemporary art-ish for my taste.

    I guess its OK as a piece of art. Not so much as a functional vehicle.

    Is it called the Saviour Machine?

    It's dreadful and not at all Bowie.
