Saab’s PheoniX Concept Car

Source: Auto Blog

At the 2011 Geneva Auto Show, Saab debuted a new hatchback concept car called the PheoniX. Since Saab has now declared bankruptcy, it’s even more unlikely than usual that this concept will become reality. It really was a beautifully designed concept car, but all we can do now is dream. Check out some concept art below and head over to Auto Blog for some photos from the Geneva Auto Show.

With the first of my car related posts, I bring you a story from 2010 about road trains.

The Citroen Tubik – The Pig in a Blanket Van

The Citroen Tubik, a concept to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, is an interesting design for a modern van. Citroen, a French car manufacturer, is well known in Europe, but largely unheard of in the US. Their slogan, “Créative Technologie” (Creative Technology), would seem applicable to the Tubik. Let’s take a look at the interior first.

Aston Martin V12 Zagato

The Zagato is a new car by Aston Martin to supposedly be released later this year at the Frankfurt Motor Show. This new Zagato really does look nice, but only 150 will be made. Not surprising since the car will cost nearly $600,000. A few specs include a V12 engine and a 0-62 mph time of 4.2 seconds.

I first saw the Zagato a while ago on Top Gear (UK version, of course), but since then I’ve been trying to decide if I like it. You might ask what is there to not like about an Aston Martin. Well, I’m not too crazy about the design of the rear of the car. It just strikes me as a little strange.

Here are some concept renderings:

Aston Martin’s new Virage

Just a quick post to mention Aston Martin’s new car, the Virage. I saw it mentioned on Top Gear (UK version [the best version]), and I decided to check it out. Aston Martin only announced it last month (it’s a revival of an older model, though), and it’s quite a beautiful car. The Virage will have a 6.0-liter V12 engine, and a top speed is 186mph, with 0-62mph acceleration in 4.6 seconds. If only I could afford it.

Slideshow & Gallery of some random pictures I found of it from around the internet.
