Tribute Reveal
The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show hasn’t even kicked off yet, but already there’s a contender for best in show. Porsche’s reveal of its stunning Mission E Concept is a show stopping, drop dead gorgeous, über-fast-charging, all-electric supercar that Porsche reckons will clock the Nürburgring in under 8 minutes, and while it might scream around the 20 odd kilometres of the Nordschleife, what this vehicle shows us very quietly is the future shape of automotive form and function.

Mission E concept is by far the cleanest design to hit the podium to date, very Porsche, but also very predictive of shapes to come. Loaded with plus numbers, 800 volt, 440kW-600hp, 0-100kmh in 3.5 seconds, a top speed of 250kmh and a range of 500km …and perhaps a cheeky nudging at the only other cool spark on the block ‘Lookout Tesla’  :: Read the full article »»»»

Peugeot, hmmm, they’ve always made a decent enough Looking automobile, a little lacking perhaps on the reliability front – Peugeot Drivers Be Quiet, servicing your car EVERY month isn’t normal – aside from that little nugget, if don’t fit into a slimline blue pencil skirt or loafers and cardigans, they’ve never really been inspiring. Adding to that image, Peugeot has released pix of it’s latest concept, the VeLV.

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 »»»»

Droolability, a word not often enough used. Perhaps we’re jaded, perhaps we’ve just been supercarred to death.  perhaps the ü has gone out of über? That is about to change.  Say hello to the most droolworthy car of the year, Jaguars stunning C-X16 compact coupe hybrid concept. According to the British auto maker C-X16 “marks a new chapter for Jaguar”, featuring a new design language, a technologically advanced drive-train as well as  highlighting a new way of thinking without losing any heritage. Whats most amusing about Jaguar is it seems every couple of years they shock us with just how well they can design an automobile, as if it takes us about that length of time to forget how much we love them? :: Read the full article »»»»
