Scion is a brand of vehicles produced by Toyota Motor Corporation for the
North American market. Founded in 2002, Scion was introduced at the New
York Auto Show to appeal to Generation Y consumers. The first Scion models,
the xA hatchback and xB wagon, went on sale in California in 2003, followed
by a sports coupe, the tC, and a nationwide U.S. launch in 2004.
A successor to the xA, the xD, premiered in 2008, and the Scion marque
expanded to Canada in 2010. Scion currently has five models: the tC, xB,
iQ, xD, and the FR-S. The Scion name, meaning the descendant of a family or
heir, refers both to the brand's cars and their owners.

Mazda Shinari Concept debuts new face of the brand in style!
Looking at the exterior, it's easy to tell that the Shinari shares little
in common with Mazda's recent designs, although like almost every sedan
built today, it has similarities to vehicles from other brands. It's almost
as if the Aston Martin Rapide and a Mazda RX-8 cued up some Barry White,
enjoyed a romantic evening and the Shinari came out nine months later.
That's obviously a compliment, as the Rapide is a stunningly beautiful car
and the RX-8 -- even this far into its lifecycle -- is still a looker.
However, the Shinari has a much more complicated design, with more
intersecting lines and a surface area that's constantly moving and changing
depending on the lighting.
While the exterior is certainly a departure from previous designs, the
interior is perhaps the most surprising aspect of the Shinari. Easily the
most attractive and stylish interior we've seen in a Mazda (concept or
not), it's swathed in authentic aluminum trim, leather-covered surfaces and
double stitching at nearly every turn and twist. We're again drawn to the
Aston Martin Rapide comparison, especially with the design of the deep rear
bucket seats. The gauges, modeled after popular watch designs, up the class
quotient and the massive glass roof helps make the interior feel open and
But more than the tech and the attention to detail, it's the Shinari's
overall cohesion that impresses the most. Unlike other pie-in-the-sky
concepts, the Sinari is a smart, well executed styling exercise that should
be a solid design platform for future models. The muscular lines should
translate well into a production car, and customers will always appreciate
a more sophisticated interior.
We sure like the sound of a Mazda RX-9!

2011 Hamann Tycoon Evo M (2011 Geneva Auto Show)
The Hamann Tycoon Evo M is known to us and known to you. The BMW X6 M
package from the German tuner was reviewed last year, still the Germans
took the car along to the Geneva Motor Show.
The main subject concerning this Tycoon Evo M are certain carbon fiber
parts fitted to the car. As you can see below in the gallery they added a
carbon fiber hood, roof rack, lower front spoiler, rear window spoiler,
rear wing, rear diffuser and rear tail lights covers. All these parts are
new to the program in a special color and were revealed at the Geneva Auto
Just a recap, the bad ass looking X6 M is lifted to 670hp that results in
sports car rivalling performance figures: 0-100km/h in 4.2 seconds and a
top speed of 300km/h
