It's dramatic, it's rear wheel drive and it is, quite simply, unlike
anything Kia has ever done before. And it has proved to be one of the star
attractions of this year's Frankfurt Motor Show.
Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale - 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show
It's not every day you see a red Lamborghini. In fact, it's likely you've
never seen one; and for good reason. It seems that "other" Italian exotic
automaker has pretty much cornered the market on that particular shade.
BMW i3 & i8 Concepts - 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show
Making their world premiere at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the BMW i3 and i8
may just be concepts, but point to a major push by the German automaker
into the realm of electrified vehicles.

concreto en particular, pero si a todos los modelos futuros en general, ya
que proporciona el entorno idóneo para orientar la creación de nuevos
productos de Ford a nivel mundial. Algunos de los nuevos modelos que la
marca norteamericana ha lanzado desde los primeros compases del año ya

2011 Ford Mad Max Concept
Ford Australia, in partnership with TopGear Australia magazine, has
unveiled not one, but two spectacular new Mad Max Interceptors.
The 21st century concepts have been designed by Ford's designers for
TopGear Magazine Australia to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max
action movie genre.
It is more than 30 years since Hollywood director, George Miller's original
Mad Max movie - starring Mel Gibson and a jet black Ford XB coupe-based
Interceptor - hit movie screens around the world.
Ford Australia's Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design
Director, Chris Svensson, jumped at the chance to design a new Interceptor
and has since thrown the full weight of Ford Australia's Research Centre
behind the project, with stunning results.
"Our entire team was very excited to be involved in this after-hours
project and they approached it with a great deal of enthusiasm - even those
that were too young to remember the first Mad Max movie," Svensson said.
"We had a special screening of the original movie so they could understand
Led by chief designer passenger cars Asia, Pacific and Africa, Todd
Willing, the team created several way-out concepts that pay homage to
styling cues from the original XB Coupe Interceptor.
Out of the concepts two have been chosen by the magazine to feature in the
April issue of TopGear Australia magazine, on sale now, because they take
body design, power sources and weaponry to a futuristic level.
TopGear Australia magazine readers will be invited to vote on which design
Ford should take to the next level.
The winning car will be turned into a clay model, and then a scale version,
which is expected to be revealed later this year.
The two competing designs - by designers Nima Nourian and Simon Brook - are
limitless in their imagination, technology and weaponry. Among the weaponry
is an industrial-strength "taser" mounted to the bonnet to zap bad guys on
bikes straight off the road.
Other futuristic movie features include a titanium-lined body shell to
interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred enemy
Nourian said his design paid tribute to the 1970s Interceptor, but also
drags the car into the future.
"There are some great scenes in the first movie with high-speed chases and
clashes with the bad guys, and I thought I'd take that one step further,"
he said. "So instead of having weapons and machine guns, we've got an
industrial strength taser that'll zap cars dead and out of the way.
Brook's car was equally threatening. "During high-speed pursuits, the
wheel's inner spokes on my design would pop out and start ripping up other
cars," Brook said. "They'd do some serious damage to other people's
Brook's design takes cues from the current FG Falcon but advances it
further into Armageddon-land, while adding touches of the retro Interceptor
as well. "I wanted to keep it clean and aerodynamic in its essence, but
still brutal and tough."

FRANKFURT, Germany, Sept. 12, 2011 -- Ford is revealing its vision for a
future high- performance Fiesta ST at the 2011 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show.

delivering impressive fuel economy with low CO2 emissions.

best-selling B-car can be both technically advanced and dramatically

currently competing on the world stage, and influenced by the unique
appearance of the all-new Focus ST, the new Fiesta ST Concept is an
exciting demonstration of the road-going Fiesta's future potential."
