Citroen M35

Citroen have always made funktastic and weird designs which are creative, unusual, and push the limits.  Here’s another one, the M35 Prototype/Concept from 1969.

1952 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Sport

The first year of production for the SL was for racing, and the 300SL burst onto the scene with beautiful classic curvy coupe form (0.25 cd!?).  What did they do in 1952? they won Le Mans.

I am going to refer you to the superb article in E-Mercedes for a lot of great background on the 300SL from 1952—-as i think the article is fantastic.  Mercedes-Benz have great digital information about their history these days—if you haven’t already, make sure you download their free iPad application for their museum as well.

Mercedes-Benz C111-3

What a stunning concept this was—-in a series of MB “C” concepts.  This one, in particular, reminds me of those 1930s Silver Arrow streamline design studies…

video of the day: weird 80s swedish man and his Urraco.

this video cracks me up…..but the sound of the Lamborghini Urraco is all types of wonderful.  Beautiful car too, one of my favourite 70s supercars.

rare NYC sighting: a modern Alfa Romeo GTV Spider.

Saw this little thing in Soho yesterday, a 1.8 Twin Spark Alfa Romeo GTV Spider.  Pretty lovely looking car…..and very rare to see in the US.  There was a “for sale” sign laying inside the car, with a price of $15k.  I’ve sent an email to the owner just out of curiousity to see what he says (i’m not really interested, however i am curious about the story!).  If anyone reading this is interested in buying the car, lemme know and i’ll pass along whatever info i find!
