I cannot imagine what the designers were thinking. Their conversation follows:

Designer 1:"Mercedes Benz used the puffer fish to make their cars more aerodynamic"

Designer 2:"How about we use a Beluga whale "

Designer 3: "Great idea, what could go wrong?"

What a Beast!

Doesnt really look that bad. Although I think if I found a Range Rover just to small and I was in the market for a Super Full Sized SUV - I would go for the Cadillac Escalade. It just looks way better.

I stared, rubbed my eyes, stared again... still it wouldn't go away.

It's wrong, and I know I shouldn't, but it's so hilariuoisly 'Meh!' I almost rather want one...
