a) get a professional designer if you aren't (or ask an art college to do a study as a graduate project),
b) don't use a Beetle for its underpinnings if you're serious about the sports bit,
c) don't try to make it look like a Lamborghini.

Else you may end up with something like this:

It's a bit of a mongrel shopping cart of design features isn't it...did he design the original Fiat Multipla?

Windscreen design comes from the Citroen Pluriel
The front end is a squared off Fiat Barchetta
The side and back is distinctly Fisher Price

each to his own!!

Kits cost around 7000 euro and you'll need a Beetle as well. This is not a one-off. The creator thinks he can sell these and has invested a lot of money among others into a brand new building:

Some people are really deluded in what they can sell, and businesses they *think* they will work...

I'm just wondering if it's less or more ugly than a Marcos Mantis...too close to call, I think
