Shhmoking hawt man! Mc P1, Porsche 918, GT3 are worth watching not to forget the F150!
And the Alfa comeback plan with the 4C! Whoo!


Did you know guys, this new Chinese Brand named Qoros is putting some SERIOUS effort with this baby! As from the pictures, this ain't like other Chinese cars. It somehow is commanding respect from me.

Oops! I forgot the VW XL1. It's worth waiting, I suppose!

Lamborghini Veneno!!!
OH MY GOD, I'm sorry for shouting, but that IMO is an STUNNING looking car.
The Rear just looks........... monstrous. I just hope its powered by something completely illogical and unnecessary but equally powerful.

For Lamborghini Veneno all I can say is that "This Transformers inspired madness has end."

Current Lambo looks very nice. It does not need this. Hope this is a concept car and will never make into production.

Personally, I did not like the design of the Veneno at all.

To me most of those strikes, cuts and additions seemed to be created just for the sake of being radical without really being useful. The front especially is clearly over-done. Apparently its based on Aventador platform will run the same heart.

Seeing the LaFerrari, especially the front shoot with the doors open immediately made me change the background wallpaper on all my devices. Except for the name, me thinks Ferrari has got it right.

Toyota shows an electrically powered three wheeler, that automatically balances itself over rough roads. They call it as "i-Road" with "self learning technology".

Well done Qoros. You have managed to built an amazing show car, now if you translate that quality to production, the general perception of Chinese cars being * will end.

May be from some angles, but it ain't "ridiculously" Chinese as their regular cars turn out to be. The headlights and the greenhouse have a very minimal resemblance to the F30. I suppose the interiors look Seat'ish.

Well, it looks a well put product., IMHO.

+1 The interiors look more Seat'ish than BMW.
especially the steering wheel.

Very handsome looking car & nice proportions though.
