1958 Skylark II XP-75 Concept

December, 2017 § Leave a comment

A gorgeous 50’s concept from General Motors, designed by Ned Nickles and body built by famous Italian brand Pininfarina.

In someway it’s the seed of the final 1959 Buick.  Two cars were built with a few differences you can see on the pics.  Lovely wing-like rear fins, nice sculptured metal side, and the rounded hood that draws a shoulder with the lights below… interesting and personal design.

I’ve met this car on this site http://www.oldcarsweekly.com that I would like to recommend everybody. And, the photos come from GM Media Archive.

2020 Tesla Roadster

December, 2017 § Leave a comment

The most (and the only) gorgeous car Tesla has build is the Roadster, a car that was based on the gorgeous Lotus Elise… they used this nice design and make it electric.

Finally Tesla has designed something gorgeous by themselves, the new Roadster version. Interesting how traditional brands hide their designs until they are close to be launched. Not Tesla…

IF u like BMW i8 so much as I like it… u gonna love the new roadster version!  This is not just a concept, now it’s a real model.

Electric/Hybrid cars has not to be boring or ugly (are u listening Tesla? 😉 thanks for the roadster, but guys… improve the rest!) .

Powered by an electric motor and a twin-turbo 3-cyl engine with 228 hp for the rear wheels.  The combined system output is 369 hp and does the 0 to 100km/h in 4.4 seconds.

2018 Aston Martin Vantage

The new “little brother” on Aston Martin’s family.  This Vantage try to bring the last James Bond’s car 2015 DB10 design to massive production.   The same proportions and narrow headlight shapes, but… not so beautiful, not at all.  Of course, it’s an Aston with the signature hill-climb grille. Even at the rear you can find a similar hill-climb line on the lights, perhaps the most interesting part of the car.

A 503-hp, 4.0 twin-turbo V8 engine built by AMG (Mercedes). Solving the Aston’s weak point during last decades.

Enjoy the pics, and decide…  Aston is leaving its elegant designs to try to get a little bit more racing like McLaren? Look at this launch color, Lime Essence contrasting polished carbon-fiber aero effects.

Henrik Fisker return to design arena with this nice aggresive car: the Force 1 supercar developed by VLF Automotive.  I love the front part of this car.

The car is based on a Dodge Viper, with a full carbon fiber body and 745 hp 8.4 liter V10 engine… astonishing performance!

2017 Aston Martin Vanquish Zagato Volante

Take a nice V12 Aston Martin and give it one of the few coach-builders that can improve it… Zagato.  They’ve already done this in 2016, look one of the most beautiful Aston you ever seen here.  And now, the cabrio version… it’s not possible to choose which one is more gorgeous.

This is the fifth collaboration between both companies, enjoy the “shark” 2011 Aston Martin V12 Zagato or the 1961 Aston Martin DB4 by Zagato.

2019 Polestar 1

The first vehicle from Polestar (used to be the Volvo performance brand, now a separate brand). A nice hybrid coupe with 218 HP double electric motor system plus a two-liter four-cylinder to reach 600hp!

This car also expects to be disruptive on the business model: no initial deposit, insurance or maintenance bills. You’ll pay a single monthly fee.
