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.

foto (s) of the day. R18!

The Audi R18  TDI is simply stunning—-the most striking race car i’ve seen in many, many years.  I will be proud to be supporting Audi during the next Le Mans!  Here it is in its full Audi Sport livery.  All 3 cars! 1, 2, and 3.

one-off Ferrari Enzo prototype

A) i don’t really care for Ferraris (you will almost never see any Ferraris on this blog….)

B) i don’t like ‘investor’ automobiles.

but this one-off Ferrari Enzo prototype is pretty damn interesting.   It’s a 348/355 stuffed to the extreme with all sorts of stuff.  It sort of looks like it is going to explode.  Apparently this car is for sale, on a cryptic listing shown on the Modena Motorsports website.  Sure it is as ugly as an dead alligator’s wrinkled testicle…..however i find prototypes like this one a bit interesting, somehow.

(thanks to Arman for the link!)

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!!!

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.
