BMW 1-Series Sedan

15, Nov 2009

I love the BMW 1-Series. Sadly it isn’t available as a 4-door sedan. So I will have to make do with my own renderings. When BMW developed the E81/E87, the sedan and touring (estate) were to be two of the 1-Series variants. Prototype of the sedan was even snapped back in 2006. I wonder why […]

Ford Escape Raptor

14, Nov 2009

Back in 2007 when Ford decided to give the then seven-year old Escape another nip tuck, the Escape gained two personalities; you could choose the cool North American version that looks like the mini F150, and the *sigh* Jane Austen version we get here in Asia. Dear Santa Ford, Can we in Asia get the […]

Chrysler Delta

With the appointment of Lancia CEO Olivier Francois as head of the Chrysler motor division, we can expect the two companies to collaborate on future products and take advantage of economies of scale… Word on the Italian street is that the current Lancia Delta could make it over here (North America) Source: Autoblog Well, the […]

Skoda Grand Superb

2, Nov 2009

This was going to be my entry for Photoshop Contest 18. But I’ve totally forgotten about the deadline. Not like it’s going to win anyway, judging by how good the other entries are. The idea behind this rendering is Skoda recycles the soon-to-be-replaced Audi A8 for China. As for the name… Well, any other […]
