1952 Astra Coupe

October, 2017 § Leave a comment

The Astra Coupe is a stunning handicraft creation. Built with aluminum, the hood alone is made of 16 separate pieces of aluminum. The powerplant is a V8 from Oldsmobile. The car was built as a labor of love by a Jay Everett of Gardena, CA, who was just 25 years old when he showed the completed car at the 1953 Peterson Motorama. He was an industrial designer and modeler, and prototyped a number of seminal designs including Polaroid camera bodies

October, 2017 § Leave a comment

A nice concept from Alfa Romero. From the 50s, this Giulietta Bertone Spider designed by Franco Scaglione never reach production.  Only two built of this masterpiece by Franco Scaglione because Alfa Romeo finally selected the Pininfarina design for the production model.

Gorgeous cars has not to be expensive, look at this beautiful hatchback from Honda. Resembles a VW Golf Mk I or and old Civir or CRX. The concept car will become a real model in 2019!

The concept integrates LED displays in the front grille and rear taillight assembly that can be used to display messages, emoticons and more. Sounds funny if we can edit the messages 😀

 

2017 Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabrio

September, 2017 § Leave a comment

“Breathtaking proportions”: a good sentence to describe this gorgeous concept from Mercedes.  I love the last designs from Mercedes, so pure, so simple… a philosophy they named “Sensual Purity design”.

Powered by a 738-hp fully electric powertrain with 24-inch wheels featuring 26 spokes and a rose-gold center lock. Coloured in Nautical Blue Metallic this cabrio is a version of the 2017 Maybach Vision 6 . Look at that grille with 25 vertical slats, probably will be the new face of the sub-brand Maybach (for hi-luxury cars from Mercedes, to compete with Rolls Royce and Bentley).

 

2017 BMW Concept 8 Series

August, 2017 § Leave a comment

The second gorgeous concept from BMW this summer.  A new 8 Series…  I’m so happy, because Z family and 80’s 8 Series are my favourites BMW’s ever and now they are recreating both.

A bold change on the brand’s signature kidney grille, not rounded, not flat… just sharp and sportive. A nice car, with lines flowing in a “Barcelona Gray Liquid” coloured body.   From the back, the 8 Series has i8 shaped lights and a rear spoiler molded into the trunk lid that we’ve discovered in 2000 6 Series from Chris Bangle and that has become a kind of brand signature.

Thanks Adrian van Hooydonk for let us enjoy these concepts, but please, make it real models, without so many changes, please!!

After years of boring X3, X5… series 7, 5, 1…  Active Tourer…. BMW is waking up!  Here you have a bold and nice design, the new Z4 roadster.

Matte paint finish in Frozen Energetic Orange this gorgeous car has sharper grille design, headlights so different form nowadays BMW’s car and a nice L-shaped taillights resembling BMW i8.   Z models (Z1, Z3, Z4 and Z8) always have been about loooong hood, not this car… with a shorter one, moving the driver to the center.

And this nice concept doesn’t come alone! It has two nice brother concepts: X2 Concept and 8 Series Concept.  BMW welcome again to gorgeous cars world!  We’ve missed you!

2017 Infiniti Prototype 9

Fell in love with this prototype from Infiniti.  A gorgeous experiment of applying Infiniti design language in a 30-40’s race car.   Look the double-arch grille, the long tail and the wonderful wire wheels.  Pure grey silver beauty.
