To be fair, they probably look better in a lighter colour, like metallic red. But this was Germany, so it was black.

Yoss is probably right about it being futureshite.

Delorean John.


It wouldn't have been flushed with success in their home market, and would probably have been panned by the critics. If Delorean had survived, to compete in the current market they'd need an SUV - the RestRoom.

Yoss is probably right.


Ha ha, thought I'd quote that bit and show it to Mrs Yoss sometime when she'll decide I'm most definitely not.

Anyway back to the Alfa, think of it as Austin 3-Litre. Sold in very small numbers when new, scraped along the bottom of the depreciation curve for about 20 years (that's when we buy them) and are only now starting to pick up (but we would have sold it on long before that happens.

Appropriate that the Fisker mess was eventually bought by a company called Wanxiang. They spunked up $25m for it.

I really liked the Fisker Latigo - the car the BMW E63 should have been. Pity they only ever built two.

Hmm. No. The Fisker grille can get in the sea. I hate it.

 

 

However, I love the Cardi Curara above. It looks like the illegitimate love-child of a BMW Z8 and a Bugatti Veyron.

The back end of the E63 was no great shakes either.

I've got a real soft spot for estate cars, and yesterday I was taking a bike to the MOT station and overtook one of these. I never knew they existed, but if my financial situation were different I would be very tempted  . .
