2011 Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon Black Diamond Edition (2011 Chicago Auto Show)
General Motors showed off the sexy new Cadillac Black Diamond Edition CTS-V Sport Wagon at the 2011 Chicago Auto Show, complete with its exotic SpectraFlair paint and snazzy yellow brake calipers. As you may recall, GM partnered up with JDSU for the special hue, and each Black Diamond Edition Caddy gets a three-coat paint process. Along with the shiny stuff, Cadillac bolted on a set of Satin Graphite 19-inch wheels that help make those wild calipers pop in a big way, and the interior makes use of plenty of micro suede and special wood accenting.
The combined effect is one very sinister long-roof.
Prices for the gussied-up CTS-V coupe start at $70,490, which is a $4,850 premium over the run of the mill V. Worth it? We'll just say that this machine is one of the few at this year's Chicago Auto Show that made our do-want list.

2011 BMW Vision ConnectedDrive Concept
The 2011 Geneva Motor Show will see the world premier of the BMW
ConnectedDrive Concept car. The concept study, in a two-seat roadster
guise, presents the automobile as a fully integrated part of the networked
world in both its design and technological innovations. It is with this
concept that BMW presents the potential of current and future in-car
technology for optimizing comfort, safety and infotainment.
The BMW ConnectedDrive Concept employs a layering principal in its design,
demonstrating the bond between the driver, passenger, vehicle and the
surrounding environment. This is visualised by the complex light
installation which shows the path of data exchange with the driver and
passenger as the start and end point of each interaction.
The interior is divided into three layers - comfort, infotainment and
safety - each with a corresponding light installation. Each layer is
defined by a colour, rhythm, motion and texture and, through the
transparent surfaces the path taken by the information can be seen via
fiber optic lighting.
The first layer focuses on safety, with a red light wrapping around the
driver and coming together in a cone on the bonnet. This represents the
flow of safety-specific information and the driver's focus on the road
ahead. The second layer encompasses the safety layer and extends to the
passenger cell, focusing on infotainment. This layer promotes active social
exchangement between the driver and passenger and is outlined by the blue
ribbon of light. The final layer, defined by the green light flow,
concentrates on the interaction of the vehicle with the world around it.
The emphasis is on the outside of the vehicle, starting and ending with the
two antennas, in place of wing mirrors, providing the data link to the
