It’s been a while, so muchos apoligas if anyone has been looking at this silent page. Going to attempt to get back on it for a while with various posts of dubious interest.
Been attempting to speed up Alias skills with a 2 day project. Came up with this lightweight eco-sportser with the weekend-racer in mind.
Saw the sneak-preview pics of the Nissan GT-R (not skyline anymore) and am thinking that this is a very tasty bit of kit. The rear-end in particular is a masterpiece of aggressive detailing set on a subtley faceted surface. Though if I’m nitpicking the central strut that supports the spoiler looks like a last-minute thing;
Funny thing about concept cars these days though; most of them seem to be pre-production tasters several years in advance, not really way-out thinking, so by the time they’re in production we’ve been aware of them for a while. kind of kills the element of surprise. So a few years back we got this from Nissan;
10/10 yes please..
then a couple of years later we got this;
9/10 hmm..i’ll still have one
and now the real thing;
8/10 I’m still loving it but what happened to the decadent headlight stack from the original concept??
Be interested to hear why they went back on this feature. Too aggressive? Not manufacturable? Did management lose their bottle?
Alfa just launched the 8C Competizione which they somehow managed to make sexier than the original concept so it can be done;
Production.. drool. £108,000 though.
