Dear Santa, it’s been a strange old year. I’ve been a really good boy. So good, in fact, that i have a few extra things I’d like. Here’s some pies to chomp on while you make a note of what I want.
A Tramontana. Some crazy car from Spain. 700Hp. Aero-grade materials. And £300K…..bugger.
Adidas americana – Halloween ltd edition.
A Dodge Charger. Yeah, it’s more retro design. But as mentioned in a previous post, when it’s this good it doesn’t matter what ‘school’ of design is going on. And get this; at current exchange rates this thing costs £18K. What would you rather – a Mondeo 1.8Lx, or one of these? Yeah, I’m talkin’ to you Santa!
A Jaguar XF. Not initially a fan of Ian Callum’s work on this critical-for-Jag design. Saw it in the flesh in Frankfurt and still wasn’t convinced. Seeing it in a dark colour though, it starts to make sense.
And the interior rocks.
And an iPhone. I’ve got to be honest, though i love Apple’s gear, i’m not keen on the fact that design obsolescence kicks in after only a year or so…but hey, seeing as this is a present, I’ll let it go.
Oh, and the O2 contract.
Nice one Santa.
To any readers – have a great one and a fantastic NewYear. Check back early in 2008 for some new ‘news’.
