While we certainly wish we were among those lucky few who can actually afford the $179,995 asking price for the sultry two-door, we’ll have to suffice with this latest video clip from the visual geniuses at Gentleman Scholar, a multimedia production studio based in Los Angeles, California. The idea behind the video was to capture the ‘Power’, ‘Beauty’ and ‘Soul’ of the car. We think they’ve done it perfectly. As you may have...
