lecture of the day. E12 M535i.

well this guy should teach a class on stellar german classics….not the most exciting video, but lots of information for those interested in the birth of the modern fast sedan!  One of the coolest BMWs ever, and definitely the coolest M5 ever made, the BMW E12 M535i.

McLaren MP4-12C: how to build an unimaginative, ugly, and boring supercar.

The McLaren MP4 can do blahblahblahblahblah in blah.blah seconds.  It can reach a top speed of blahblahblahblahblah.  It has technology everywhere, including a blahblahblahblahblahblah….it is the successor to the legendary blahblahblahblahblah.

Don’t even care.  It’s so bland and painfully boring from every angle.  It looks like a rejected 90s build-your-own-supercar-kit-car.  Yeah you copied a Ferrari from the front, you copied the outline of an R8, and you tried add some Lamborghini-ness……BLAH BLAH BLAH.  blech.

Hey McLaren! YOU SUKZ AT DESIGN!  try again sometime…..

BMW E30 M3 Evo…..with 59 km? and another with 92 km!? NEW!

An amazing story, of a guy who found an E30 M3 Evo sitting brand new……….not even just a regular E30 M3, but an EVO! amazing.

as he puts it:

“The car has not been started or driven for 20years, so will need recommissioning, its booked into a BMW main dealer next week for all fluids,filters and belts a to be changed before its started for the first time in 20 years. Its never been cleaned and has never seen rain and very little day light!!! its just been sat there and forgotten about!!! hence the original 20 year old dust, i quite like it like that it just show’s provenance that the car really was forgotten about!!!  When its been cleaned and serviced i’ll post more pics”

WAIT A MINUTE!!! There’s more.

he found ANOTHER identical  M3 Evo sitting right next to it with 92 KM and bought the 2nd one as well!! Unbelievable.

at which point, he posted:

“Well ive got some more news for you all!!!!! Sorry just showing off now.  Have another look at the photo’s you will see that the cars are sat on different surfaces!!!!!!!!!!!!! There’s not one there were two identical cars both parked next to each other for 20yrs. Ones done 59 kilometers the other has done 92 kilometers”

so he bought both……..AND the RS200 Cosworth!

Saab Aero X…production?

It’s an exciting time for SAAB in IEDEI’s opinion.  They get a fresh start, under a native Swedish company, with alot of press in the last 6-12 months and only one way to go: UP.

The CEO of SAAB-SPYKER has been hinting that the Saab Aero X Concept (2006) could get built, even saying “it deserves to be built”.  Motor Authority are reporting there may be an increasing chance it does get based, possibly on the existing Spyker Aileron platform.  As a concept, it was definitely a stunning example of SAAB design….and what better way to relaunch the company than to make a statement.

GO ON THEN! Build it!

foto of the day: panamera

IEDEI loves the Porsche Panamera.  “WHY??” you say?  well after seeing it in person, taking a seat inside it, and just admiring the boldness of the design and features, it was hard to NOT like it.

The Cayenne was always a failure in design and execution, although it has proven to be quite popular to the SUV driver who always wanted a Porsche.

The Panamera is a different beast altogether.  It’s graceful, intimidating, and actually composed of quite a fascinating design.  Want proof?  Check out the Techart Porsche Panamera revealed at the Frankurt Auto Show last year.

hello, Porsche 918 Spyder.

This looks very R8-ish, with more curves and Porsche-ness.  I’m not sure what to really think of it.  I’m not a fan of hybrids, although I understand they will be enhancing market share in the imminent future.  If they made this car with a petrol engine, i’d be far more likely to plop it down as my wallpaper.  Still pretty cool though, and somewhat of a diversion for Porsche designing.

Make sure you watch the 2 minute promo video at the bottom of the post:
