Video: Forza Motorsport 4 trailer released, coming for GT5's lunch money in Fall 2011 [w/poll] {Autoblog Archive}

Dec 13th 2010 1:24PM In my experience forza is the better racing game, tho GT might make better driving games; what you really need to do is buy yourself a wheel, the MS one is much better than i expected and makes the game a lot more enjoyable.

London unveils design for next-gen double-decker bus [w/video] {Autoblog Archive}

May 20th 2010 3:19PM the issue with bendy buses isn't inherent to the buses, but rather to london and its twisty narrow congested roads, the length of the buses is also a problem. Looking forward to the new routemaster here, hurry up boris!

Report: Next BMW M6 to take cues from Vision concept, targets Audi R8 {Autoblog Archive}

Mar 30th 2010 12:58PM Smythe, the S5 isn't a competitor to the M6, but the surely the upcoming RS5 will be. Whatever the shape of the M6, it'll certainly be shared by the lesser 6 series that WILL be cross shopped with the Audi: they're both large premium 2+2 front engined coupes occupying the same market niche.

Report: Next BMW M6 to take cues from Vision concept, targets Audi R8 {Autoblog Archive}

Mar 30th 2010 12:26PM I have to agree with you here, that was a much better looking machine, and if you look at the details especially around the rear seems to be the same rolling stock.

Dutch Delight: Donkervoort launches D8 235 E {Autoblog Archive}

Mar 26th 2010 9:05PM Be fair caterham, westfield and their ilk are all interpretations of the lotus7, with varying levels of accuracy. To my eye the donkervoort is better looking than either of them, and i understand its just as stupid fast.

Spy Shots: Bentley Continental GT gets a new nose, more swoop for 2011 {Autoblog Archive}

Mar 24th 2010 10:05PM now if they can just sort out the vile rear lights the GT can stop being a butterface . . . well butterass at least

Spy Shots: New BMW 6 Series cabrio caught, reveals no more flying buttresses {Autoblog Archive}

Nov 27th 2009 9:48PM Canvas? Yay . . . i hope its the production roof, canvas ones a lighter, cheaper, just as waterproof, pretty quiet and don't have that annoying habit of making a good looking car ungainly. Mercedes and of all people Opel / vauxhall are to my eye the only companies that have pulled off a successful folding hard top, OFC your mileage may vary!

Officially Official: BMW unveils all-new 5 Series sedan {Autoblog Archive}

Nov 23rd 2009 4:01PM I actually really like the design, but its closeness to the existing 7 & 3 renders it dull and unexciting . . . Looks like we're back to the BMW philosophy of one car in three different sizes. I think announcing the death of bangle's influence is premature tbh, his influence is all over these designs, flame surfacing lots of contours and heavy creaselines, they just lack the bangle butt.

I hope bangle continues to influence car design, love him or hate him you have to have an opinion, and having grown up in the 1990's i think car design that provokes more than a yawn is ALWAYS a good thing

Lotus wins 2 EVO magazine car of the year awards {Autoblog Archive}

Nov 14th 2009 2:40PM not entirely true or indeed a fair comparison, ferraris come up a LOT more expensive and there is no direct comparison model to a 911 from lotus

The Evora is faster round the top gear test track and rockingham than either a new boxter s or the old version.

An Exige is quicker around goodwood than a 997 gt3

Lotus wins 2 EVO magazine car of the year awards {Autoblog Archive}
