MUST HAVE Papillionaire Classic Sports

The Papillionaire Classic is a delicious combination of clean lines and stylish curvature. No longer must the racers amongst us hem their pant legs in socks. The Papillionare Classic sports upside-down North Road handlebars for a natural gripping position, and a deep frame and optional toe clips for more aggressive riding.

Posted: October 5th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Auto News, Auto News, Concept Car, Grilled, Nissan | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on All I Want For Xmas: Nissan's JUKE-R

The marriage of Nissan and Renault has seen the pair produce some pretty nifty crossover designs, this however has to take the cake. This combination, hybridization of two diametrically opposed design houses has worked out rather nicely, thank you very much. Nissan in it’s effort to stay ahead of the current dullness out there in the motoring world is building two Juke-R concept cars. The tiny pocket rockets will be kitted with an all-wheel-drive drive-train and a heart stopping 480 bhp 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, the same motor hiding inside the Nissan GT-R supercar, ouch. The cars are being built by RML for Nissan Technical Centre for Europe (NTC-E) with a view to testing the public’s reaction to a seriously sporty Juke. CONSIDER IT TESTED! Juke-R is all I want for Christmas thanks!

Land Rover DC100

Land Rover owners are an odd breed – I know this because I too suffer this disease – they tend to NOT embrace change, until of course it’s here, then they spout the wonders of good British design. Model changes are a rare thing for the ubercool off-roader. When they do happen, purests around the globe tend to get all vocal over how the brand is being watered down and spout 1000 non-nonsensical reasons why Land Rover should hold on to her old values. Of course the newer models are the best though, built tonka truck tough, with a brilliant eye for aesthetics, blah blah blah.

As an avid admirer and indeed driver of Land Rover, I’m excited at the idea of an evolved new version, and evolution is precisely what Land Rover has just unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show – Die Hards Turn Away Now! – Land Rover has just taken the wraps off its already controversial DC100 Concept in Frankfurt :: Read the full article »»»»
