Is that truly a raptor's fusion? Its pretty cool but I think an orange or black exterior might have worked out better.

Wow, I guess if you win a car for free, it would be OK, but NO WAY would I be seen driving that Pimp Moblie. Sell or trade it in & see what you get.
In the USA, if you "win" a car, like on The Price Is Right show, you have to pay the "Gift Tax", which is about 50 % of the cars RETAIL value, when you get her tagged & licensed. On that note, I, myself would not pay 50 % for that Fusion. I'd go to the dealer & ask " Can I trade it for another nice SEL 3.0 Fusion right off the transporter, or order one instead ??? "

Granted the orange and black would make it more universally appealling to all basketball fans.
But, orange and black are not the Raptor's colours...
Red and purple are, thus the red and purple colours.
If it was orange and black then it really wouldn't be a Raptors car... it'd just be a "basketball car". I think the person that eventually gets it will be a Raptors fan first, and NBA basketball fan second. Just my thoughts...

Now if Spalding decided to make a Fusion it might decide on orange and black, [glow=red,2,300]but the big question would be synthetic or real leather seats???[/glow] 8)

That being said, It'd be nice if Ford (from Detroit) made similiar vehicles for its Detroit teams.
Say a red Fusion for the RedWings, and Sonic Blue one for the Pistons, and a Navy blue one for the Tigers.

... as for the Lions, forget about it. :p

no gift tax in Canada,
no tax on lottery winnings either.

that's why we get all the Americans here at the Casinos... You keep what you win!

who knows maybe someone crazy about the Raptors will buy it to drive to the games and tailgate...
only problem I see though is that basketball season is predominantly throughout the winter months and NO ONE wants to tailgate outside in TO, in January and February...

If the Raptors could consistently get to the playoffs then maybe someone will want it to tailgate in April/May.

it looks to be an SE???
the temp controls just below look to be the dial type.

did the SE have those buttons?

my bad...
Looking at some other SE interior photos from here it looks like it does indeed have those buttons on either side of the FUSION logo.

so hmm... where did they go???

Should still have the 4ways and reset for MPG and trip. Judging by the one cluster pic...... it should have all that. I would hope maybe they stuffed it into the dash compartment.
