ad of the day. Karma.

When I first saw the Fisker Karma, I wasn’t too keen on it.  But as time as gone by, I think it is a truly stunning & beautiful car with tremendous attention to detail; interior and exterior.  Henrik Fisker is a pretty interesting designer (he also designed 2 of my favourite modern designs; the BMW Z8 and Aston Martin AMV8), and I think he’s designed a pretty remarkable car.   I’d have one in black with the full Alcantara interior….and when I mean “full”….i mean REALLY full Alcantara interior (dash, steering wheel, console, seats, etc).  Wicked.

And it’s promoted with a pretty fantastic print ad!

ad of the day. “styling so hairy….”

I think my Detroit roots are catching up with me these days—-as i’ve been thinking more and more about cars like the AMC Javelin. I’ve always found the design of the Javelin to be….well…..challenging.  While there’s no denying that the Mark Donahue Trans-Am Javelins looked incredible….the street version has always been challenging!  All in all though, i think it’s a tremendously unique design.  Very appropriate for its era.  Look at those wheel arch bulges!

You have to love a car whose ad calls its styling “hairy”!

ad of the day: Bagheera

As my obsession with older french cars rises by the day; i am finding new cars to be fascinated by.  One of them is the bizarre 3-seat Matra-Simca Bagheera!

ad of the day. Jarama

This is from a 1974 sales brochure for the Lamborghini Jarama S

To me, there’s nothing cooler than the ‘unsung’ supercars—-the ones that DON’T capture the attention of everyone—-and that’s exactly what the Jarama is—-an unknown Lambo.

1983 & Lancia.

Look at that interior! Look at the fitting of the seat fabric! Quality spelled out in 1-9-8-3. I found myself laughing at this page of a Lancia Prisma (4-door brother to the Delta) brochure from 1983……and i thought american cars were rubbish from that time….the horror!

BMW commercial FAIL.

BMW has decidedly become more tacky as the 90’s concluded and the 00’s began.  The cars have declined, in my opinion, and their strategy, designs, and overall brand identity have undergone a process of failure.  Currently their sales are dropping by the day; losing momentum to the imminent rise of Audi, Lexus, and a resurging popularity of Mercedes-Benz.

That being said, it is readily apparent these days that BMW is MOST worried about Audi and their slow and steady growth (even through the recession).  So what are BMW gonna do about it?

They have released one of the cheesiest, nonsensical, and empty commercials i’ve seen in a long time.  Nice one BMW.  Even that previous generation Audi A4 you’ve put sort of makes the current 3-series look pale.  If they had put the new B8 A4, it would have surely converted more buyers into Audi drivers than BMW ones.  Ultimately, what this commercial does is make BMW drivers look worse than their current image already suggests…

And the slow decline of BMW continues…

Maserati……Ramblin

This video was posted on Vimeo, and I dunno much about the video….aside from the fact that it’s great! Love it.  It might be a commercial for the Quattroporte—judging by the outro….
