Citroen DS4 Racing

15, Feb 2011

Above is my entry for Carspyshots Photoshop Contest 6. Participants are to create a new road legal racing car for any car manufacturer. I decided to make a racing variant of the DS4, like its smaller brother the DS3 Racing.

Auto Express reported last month that Volkswagen is planning a seven-seater SUV that would be a cheaper alternative to the Touareg and will be aimed directly at the American consumer. The seven-seater SUV could be build along side the American Passat in the company’s news plant in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Honestly, I don’t believe much of […]

Automotive News recently reported that Hyundai told dealers attending the brand’s make meeting today that a two-door coupe version of the 2011 Elantra will go on sale this spring. So why have the Elantra/Avante when they’ve just launched the Veloster?

Volkswagen E-Nardò

9, Feb 2011

This is my homage to the Volkswagen Nardò concept (with reference to the Nardò Ring track, near to the Italian city of Nardò). The concept car was first unveiled in 1997.

BMW M3 Touring

4, Feb 2011

Autoblog reported a rumour that BMW may be considering an M3 Sportswagon, or Touring in BMW terms. Is it a little late to do an M3 Touring from the soon-to-be-replaced E93 3-Series? Well, look how long BMW to finally released the 1 Series M Coupe, or Audi with their RS3. I say build it! It’s […]
