Bugatti FAIL!

Walter De Silva must have been sniffing massive buckets of glue when he designed this. Thankfully it was rejected by VAG head Ferdinand Piech….nice one, Piech.   This is one ugly ride! (and i’m a huge Veyron fan)

foto of the day/ Will the Swedish Government save Saab!?

Rumour is that the Swedish government have called emergency meetings to meet with GM! Maybe Saab will survive!?

In honor of the beating of Saab that’s occuring at the moment, today’s foto of the day is devoted to the ORIGINAL 1st Saab ever made..URSaab, the Saab 92. It had a drag coefficient of 0.30 (!!!) in 1947! Amazing.

DO NOT LET SAAB DIE, SWEDEN!!!

Future Honda S2000?

 

The Honda S2000 is dead.  I’ve got a sneaking feeling that it WILL be back quite shortly, in altered and new form of course.  These are some interesting renderings from Grid/3dLuvr about a possible idea.  Note that they have a striking similarity to the outgoing model, however it’s all tweaked up with added styling cues.  Reminds me alog of the MB Gullwing that was debut’d recently…

Long before there was ever an Audi R8 or Audi TT, there were a series of interesting sports car concepts from Audi.  One of the most memorable was this 1991 Audi Quattro Spyder Concept. I still have no idea why they didn’t make it….it looked spectacularly cool.

Mercedes progress on gullwing coupe revival

Well, it’s undoubtedly one of the great icons in automotive history, the famous Gullwing Mercedes coupes of the 50s.  We all know that Mercedes has been testing prototypes of the car very openly…and although very concealed, have provided insight into the direction MB are headed in…

Below are some ‘new’ sketches found on the Top Gear site, along with a couple original spy photos and what Top Gear claim, are the ‘actual’ interior shots of the production car.   Either way, the car looks fantastic.  Can’t wait to see the final product.
