IEDEI’s new daily driver.

yes a few months ago i picked up a bright Valencia Orange BMW 1M.  740 cars brought to the US market. Mine is #374.

I will be doing a full review and photo-post about the car at a later time.

All i can say for right now is:  It is the most fun car I have ever driven….the best car i have ever driven—and i’m still shocked that i own it and drive the pants off of it every single day.  Worthy of all the hype and more!  Live the dream, my rock and roll people!

TT Ultra quattro Concept.

2450 pounds. (a reduction of 660 pounds!)

306hp

wow.  I never thought i’d see an Audi TT with such a low weight.  I think the MK2 TT was a major design flop as I think the MK1 is one of THE great designs in automotive history…but this weight reduction is almost enough to make me forgive the MK2’s unforgivable design flaws.  Audi, you’ve impressed me yet again.

foto of the day. Hyena.

After checking out photos of the BMW Zagato Coupe concept yesterday, I found myself trying to think of the last Zagato-bodied car that i actually really liked.  Immediately the first car that really came to mind was the limited production Lancia Hyena.  

It’s important to consider that this was not only a fantastic looking car, but carried the performance to embarass a Lancia Delta Integrale.  Bold words then…..so why is that true?  The Hyena is based off the Delta Integrale, shares the same 250hp engine, but weighed 450+ pounds less (it weighed just 2550 pounds)!   So stunning to look at, and with a 0-60 time in the low 5 seconds; stunning to drive!

Completely underrated too….i would love to have one of these in my garage.  They were supposed to make more than 100 cars—however production stopped after 26 cars.  Stay tuned for a more in depth feature to come in the following weeks—-on a car i’m becoming more and more fascinated with.

Jaguar XK-R 75

Jaguar has been a pretty boring company for several years now, although lately it’s all been improving dramatically.  One of the significant problems is the current lack of identity, however.  Everytime i see a ‘new’ Jaguar sedan, it looks like a cross between an Audi A6 wannabe and a Jaguar.  What happened to the identity, lads!?

Anyways, the new XK-R 75 looks pretty damn slick.  530hp, 0-60 in 4.4 seconds, limited edition to celebrate 75 years of Jaguar.  Pretty interesting paint job going on as well…

Porsche Boxster Spyder delivered…

Not mine, of course….but a friend of mine and a previous (multiple) TT owner has taken delivery of his brand new white Porsche Boxster Spyder.  Pretty aggressive looking car, with some very interesting design cues pertaining to the roof.  The interior looks fantastic.  These are the first ‘real world’ pics of this car i’ve seen, and it looks much better than the official pics that were released!  Must be a helluvalot of fun to throw around turns!

Thanks to Quattive for letting me post pics of his car.

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!

eBay eye: ’71 Lancia Fulvia Zagato.

Definitely don’t see many of these on sale in the US market…and this one looks pretty great…if only I had some loot burning a whole in my pocket, i’d get in on one of my all-time favourite Lancias.
