    Out for a drive today and passed not only a silver Vanquish (with a V12 numberplate, nice) but also an Aston Rapide with the numberplate FALL SKY :D

    This is not a car, I would call it a transportation unit. No emotion whatsoever. Why does Citroen ignore their great design history? Look at BMW, at least they try to be original with their EVs.

    So.... what's the front-end?

    White lights = front end.

    Wiki: "In order to save on the production of bodywork parts by limiting their numbers, these are the same on each profile or as the front bumper is the same as the rear bumper. Thus it benefits from doors with opposite openings, classic for the passenger and antagonistic for the driver, the doors being identical with the hinges on the same side."

    And it's a quad.

    So it's built economically and for a purpose. Just like the 2CV: seems very Citroen to me.

    That has to be a toy car. The boot space can't be more than a matchbox.

    allright, allright. I'll accept it's suitable... no... legal to use on the road.

    Somehow, I feel like the Opel variant for the German market is even uglier, eventhough it's basically the same thing. I may have to screw around and get one ^^

    Count me in as a fan of that EQXX concept. Slightly retro design, but very pleasing to the eye. I think it is high time car makers move away from enormous SUVs and back to lighter designs.

    It looks very much like some sort of low drag concept. I wonder why the badge appears to be moving independently of the car in the photo? :D
