    I prefer these, but then I am into classic cars more than into modern mid-engined machines.

    The classic corvette's look good so does the new one even though it has a outdated engine.
    The electric corvette's coming in the next few years will be highly anticipated.

    Yikes; I'm not sure about that at all.

    Look at the state of that. What are they thinking.

    Pleasingly I notice another car with a Bond link on that page: Rolls Royce's new, first all-electric model will be... the Rolls Royce Spectre. Nice! :)

    Those rear light clusters look like Shrek's ears. And the bootlid seems to come from a London taxi.
    It's criminal a DB9 had to die for that.

    The Ferrari 296 GTB has made its debut in Australia, for which a starting price of $551,800 plus on-road costs has now been confirmed.

    That makes the first V6-powered Ferrari model since the Dino 246 GT of 1974 more expensive than the entry-level Portofino convertible (from $398,888), the Roma coupe ($409,888) and both the F8 Tributo coupe ($484,888) and Spider ($536,888).

    I like the wheels. That's something. Those under e regular DB9 would work I think. The rest of this car is an affront.

    Mooo....


    Seems like a proper test to me. It goes to show that SUV's are far from safer than normal cars, and that just putting battaries in a normal car doesn't make for safe driving either. Interesting video.

    Funny, it doesn't look like a turtle.

    What do you say ? It's Gemera, not Gamera ? Never mind, then. But I'm pretty sure it spits fire.
