    That body mounted tire carrier is nice. Only thing about DV8 I don't like is I can't get things raw. I'd have to get it stripped and powdercoated again.

    I like the idea of a fastback hardtop. However, maybe it's just the camera angle, but something doesn't look right with how it lines up with the top of the doors and the freedom panels. Again, could just be the picture, but to me, it looks a little unrefined.

    Agreed. The concept is incredible but it's like they didn't take into account that the door isn't flat/plumb and has a slight arc to it so that when it got to the top, it's not aligned.

    Hopefully it's just the photos because I love this look.

    Does the back up camera work with this? I really want this type of tire carrier, but I never see any confirmed that work with the camera

    I have a DV8 rear bumper. I was hoping to see a bumper mounted tire carrier.
