Alfa Romeo 8C Spider
At the Geneva Motor Show in 2008 Alfa Romeo presented the convertible
version of the Alfa 8C. In 2009 production of the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider
began. Because only 500 are being built it is very likely that all of them
have already been sold. Nevertheless the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider will remain a
dream come true to some automotive fans.

A beautiful car in person, I spotted this 2011 F07 BMW 535i GT at the local

The practical boot is just one reason why the BMW 5 Series Touring is
desirable. This elegant and spacious estate looks good, with class-leading
build quality. It's comfortable to ride in and relaxing to drive, while the
rear seats in particular offer plenty of room. The large tailgate provides
access to a vast boot, which BMW has made extra practical with plenty of
stowage and lashing solutions to stop bulky loads moving around. We'd go
for the 520d model with its excellent blend of performance and economy.
