Maserati hard top convertible


It's coming soon.
But I'm not sure if this is it or not...

One more picture of the new Fiat Bravo interior

One weird Minivan, from China


I guess it's called the CM8 something...

A copy festival




From China.
Mercedes up front, Renault Megane CC in the back...

What else???

The Man and his machine

Turbine Eco Jet concept


Powered by a Honeywell Turbine engine that runs on Bio Diesel fuel.
It puts out 650hp!

Brought to you by Jay Leno and GM.

Mitsubishi Delica


Weird name for a weird looking van.
Besides the front end there is really nothing new or even modern looking. The whole thing looks like the first generation Renault Espace form 1984...

Mazda CX-9 starts production...



Just thought I'd let the whole world know....

More Sonata SXi pictures



Just a concept for now...

Toyota Auris TRD



17 inch wheels and 200 hp from the new 1.8 liter engine with the help of a turbo.

Anybody wants one?

More pictures of the Chinese copies from "Greatwall"







I hear they are already selling their Isuzu Axium copy SUV in Europe, so these smaller cars couldn't be far behind.
No shame...

Citroen C6 on sale in Japan



Could Canada and the US be next?

New Altima coupe picture


Looks like the real thing to me.

And by the way, thanks to the insiders about all the news on the car.
So I guess a convertible is definitely out?

What the Hell happened here???

A new front end for the Phaeton


Well, that changes everything.
Now I can really see myself driving a $90 000 VW!

(Except they don't sell it over here anymore....)

If you mix a Fiat panda with a Renault front end...


You get: another Chinese small car!

New Proton with babes!



Hey, it's the week end.

Audi A5 prototype caught in Paris!


New Chery small car caught in a sea of VWs


What a way to hide.

Sonata SXi


This 'sport" version of the Sonata was presented recently in Sidney.
I am not sure if this is an actual production version, but there is no mention of a boost in power for the V6.

That could maybe just be some competition to the Camry SE...

Chrysler Pullman


Chrysler will show at the upcoming SEMA show this Pullman concept version of the 300.
I think it's a great idea.

It looks like a true American luxury car. A mix of old fashion and really modern.
With a touch of Syd Mead ...

Bring on the Citroens!



So we can have fun at the beach!

Bravo Interior


Even better looking than the illustrations



Once again, Italians show the world how to design a car.

The new Bravo should compete with the Golf class.

Another Outlander clone!



The new Citroen C Crosser.
While not as weird and overdone as the Peugeot version, I would still call it... Weird and overdone.

I mean, how many chrome lines do you need on the front end of a car???

These 2 make the Mitsubishi Outlander look like Marilyn Monroe...

Another day, another Chinese copy. Or two...



Not sure if these are production cars (The green one has what seems to be LED headlights)

I like the special touch on the blue one:
A Yaris front end on a Scion Xa body.

Tiguan Concept in L.A


Not 100% sure if this is real.
But VW is supposed to introduce a concept version of the upcoming Golf based SUV at the Los Angeles auto Show.

If it is true, you can pretty much change the headlights, imagine smaller wheels and you almost have the production version...

More Roewe Pics.




Just to make things clear, the Rover 75 was never "based on the previous BMW 5 series" like someone pentioned here.

I think it looks OK.
Not worse than many other sedans. But the stupid name would kill any dream of selling the car in Europe.

Peugeot 4007 SUV



As you can tell, it is based on the new Mitsubishi Outlander.
Actually, it just seems to be an Outlander with a weird, disturbing front end and a bunch of tacky adds on.

I was expecting more from Peugeot.
At least the upcoming Renault SUV doesn't look that close to the Nissan it is based on...
