Issue 51/52 of Auto Bild had a wonderful article on concept cars from the today’s manufacturers.
Some of these are absolutely gorgeous – and my favourite three are below.
The Renault 16 concept is a simply brilliant piece of retro styling. The Laguna – even though it is a fair looker is all a bit too modern, whereas the 16 Concept just stands out, and that is what makes it cool.
I really think that Opel needs a big bruiser to rival the 6-Serie from BMW. The Commodore concept certainly answers the need and looks the business. No need for a Vauxhall equivalent as they have Holden’s HSV Clubbie as their adopted feral. There is a gap from this range where the Manta/Monza once stood. And I hope that this comes into production.
As for the Citroen – well, this is what a Citroen should look like. I am sure that there is a half decent engine from the PSA stable that can give this car the oomph that it would need, but this is what I expect a Citroen to look and feel. The C6 is probably the best that Citroen have to offer at the moment – other range models are not that exciting and the DS Ligne is plain silly and is just playing on the name…..
I have looked all over the web for more detail on these cars, but cannot find any. However, I very much hope that someone takes note and bites the bullet to get these from concept to reality.
