I don't know about you but I find the new honda civic a little too regular. Not enough pizzaz and it has lost that wedge feel about the new design. Well will leave it up to you guys to comment on, but for me I think I would look elsewhere.

In the FENICEmilano workshop, a veil of secrecy is surrounding the fit-out of a “Paris Purple”, the top model of the renowned Italian style group.

Taking the customisation of supercars from every stable to the hilt has always been the company’s mission.

This car, modelled on the Rolls Royce Ghost and made in purple, just like the line of complementary accessories, has been commissioned by a well-known face from the international star system.

Our client, who was won over by the name and the colour, recognised in our product the unequivocal, inimitable luxury, elegance and stile that are have always been our hallmark features.

At least it feels like performance ! But with style. As iconic as the scooters these fiat retro designed cars are very appealing. New line of Fiat 500 TwinAir models come into two models, three door and convertible model. Both of those models belong to twin air version which also divided into two, twin air and twin air plus. The difference among those two twin air version lies on the things applied inside the cabin. According to Fiat official, this new 500 twin air version is the vehicle which has theme of “fun-to-drive” and it is going to be promoted by Fernando Alonso, the famous F1 racer. 2012 Fiat TwinAir 500 and 500C Interior Fiat knows that people will seek for vehicle which has the luxury taste inside. Fiat has known it already so Fiat is designing this new 500 twin air version with some luxurious taste inside the cabin. Inside cabin, we could find some interesting things such as dashboard with satin chrome touches, sport seat wrapped with mix of perforated leather and fabric. Moving to exterior, there are some cool components such as license plate holder, chrome grille, black alloy wheels, black tailgate spoiler, and chrome sport exhaust. Those components are presented only for Fiat lovers. Talking about under the hood, this all new models are armed with 0.9 liter twin turbocharged engine which is producing power about 85 HP. The top speed is about 173 km/h followed with acceleration time 11 second from 0 – 100 km / h.

Wandering back towards the jubilee line from Cabot place I cam across fiat's Tesla and a formula 1 car in an atrium of I forget which building. Surprisingly to me the collection of cars expanded at each turn and out onto the centre area of Canary Wharf's centre almost. It wasn't until the end I saw that it was an auto expo. I really was disappointed I couldn't take more photos and even drink a beer in the sun - it was a glorious afternoon on a Friday. Read more on their official site.

Ferrari FF is the creative name they came up with for their HATCHBACK ! Ferrari FF stands for Ferrari Four, Four wheel drive and Four seats. But its the higher figure of 85 % ( the stake in the company fiat owns) is having an effect and profit is more important than the once luxurious power and style.

Sooner or later I was going to get to write something about a Pininfarina design car. And a couple of weeks ago I was sitting in the sun enjoying a pint of the amber nectar when this saloon nice clean red unmistakeably focus drew up across the road. I did a search online and regretted not snapping the bloody thing now and there are a few pics of this Pininfarina focus in Australia and the states but not much here.Its not new either!It didn't look like I could easily buy one perhaps they are no longer made. It has to be the stamp of a great designer who dolls up the ordinary into well something quite special. As a product designer I have myself searched for certain curves and Pininfarina certainly seems to find them for me, so I thought I would bring together some of his creations in a blog post for you all. Please do comment on what you think and let us know if there are any cars that you love the look of. Credits have been given below where possible.

Some of the concept cars from the shanghai 2011 motor show in April. We don't think the volvo grill is at all right though most definitely Volvo it doesn't work for me. The Renault Dizir concept car seemed quite viable in terms of its styling - gull-wing doors less practical and perhaps it will remain a concept as many of these concept cars do. What is the point of a concept ? It pushes your boundaries of technology and ignores practicalities and tries to capture the spirit of the car makers core design signature. Current designers are able therefore to take elements and inspiration from these cars and indeed competitors cause this competitive future expose. I love that Volvo have elongated their coupe here but the grill is horrible Stefen Jacoby CEO ! Also the beetle (images 3 and 9) has a very porsche front end but has the distinctive shape elsewhere I am not sure what I feel about this car - perhaps they should leave it where it was like Beverly hills cop. Love the G's Reiz shown here by Toyota President, Akio Toyoda again a concept car(picture 6). Huyndai Blue 2 concept car. image 2 - another reasonable and well styled concept. Does calling your car a prototype over concept mean its more real ? BMW Vision Connected Drive prototype...(pic 4 and 5) Nice outside disgusting speedboat look inside. I won't expect this in my lifetime.
Dad can I borrow the car ?

Well its hard to imagine a more perfect day for most of us in Great Britain and the sight of the perfect couple William and Katherine now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in Prince Charles' Aston Martin rounded things off very well indeed. We would love to know what you thought of THE Wedding of 2011 !

We feature a lot of Cabriolets on here for being stylish, perhaps we need to address the balance a little but here is certainly one to go in our style cars the Renault Megane Coupe. With an electronic fold away roof this is this as practical as it is good looking ?

Electric cars are one of the fastest growing trends in the automobile industry and industry trends suggests that the transition from gasoline to electric is natural and inevitable, as because of the rising concerns of greenhouse gas emissions and the dwindling supply of the oil fuel.  In fact, it is rather surprising that electric cars are not much in use today; given that the first developments of electric cars began as early as the 19th century, (the intelligent can infer this as a part of the oil politics strategy that decides the power equations between nations).

Just when you thought it had to stop...
...and they'd have to start capping the amount of power cars output   due to various green issues, I predict the big players of the fast car   World are about to weigh in with some fairly impressive numbers   in a whole new horsepower war. The results could be so wild   that levels previously associated with F1 and Group N machinery may become   the norm.
