Corvette Poised For Detroit Debut

Sources claim to watch Detroit. Not saying Corvette, only hinting on a huge surprise. Well, it terms of size the Escalade is huge. However they say size is not all that matters.

So...Corvette it is. 
Already seen the interior. So far it looks to be Corvette. At least after looking at the emblem. And the design. A bit like a C7 mixed with Stingray Concept and Millennium Falcon or something. 
So...surprise
At least act like you will be surprised. Didn't hear from us.  But you know what, don't act, surprised you will be.
You will be.

2020 Kia Telluride

DETROIT, January 14, 2019 – Large, bold, capable and comfortable, the midsize Telluride SUV opens the door to exploring in a whole new way. Imagined in America, designed at Kia’s design studio in California, and assembled in Georgia[1], the Telluride is all about big skies, desert roads, mountain passes, shady forests, smooth highways, and long coastal drives. The largest Kia ever, it provides comfortable seating for up to eight, a powerful 291-hp 3.8-liter V6, available active on-demand all-wheel drive[2], and an inspiring view of the world.  In short, the Telluride offers potential for exploration and adventure every time it’s on the road.
Designed in America for America

Niels van Roij Design shows first sketches of the Breadvan Hommage

The London-based design house Niels van Roij Design recently announced that it will make a contemporary interpretation of the legendary 'Ferrari Breadvan'. This unique hand-built car from the sixties, will now have a successor based on the Ferrari 550 Maranello.


"The choice to go for this icon of the 90s was logical," says car designer Niels van Roij. "The 550 is the first Ferrari in 24 years (since the Daytona) which was built in the same way as the 250 GT at the time; a large V12 in front with a manual gearbox. It gives us a unique opportunity to base our interpretation of the legendary Breadvan on a car with a corresponding DNA."


Meanwhile, the saw has gone through the donor car and the back of the 550 has been separated from the rest of the vehicle. Van Roij: "We want to preserve the gentleman racer look of the Maranello and also incorporate the strong graphic characteristics of the Breadvan into the design. Think of the air intakes, unmistakably i…
