Land Rover DC100

With the DC100, Land Rover is attempting to reinvent the Defender for 2015. This isn’t an easy task, as the design needs to meet the demands of a diverse customer base – military, farmers and foresters to name a few, as well as dedicated urban off-roaders

Fisker Surf

The Surf is the second car to be introduced by independent California-based electric carmaker Fisker Automotive. The shooting break concept is an electric vehicle with extended range, much like its sibling the Karma but with an enlarged boot space. Designer Henrik Fisker says he was inspired by the 1970s Lamborghini Espada. www.fiskerautomotive.com

 

Jaguar C-X16 concept

Jaguar’s latest C-X16 concept car is a two-seater study for a compact sports car. The model shown at Frankfurt has a hybrid engine based on a 3.0-litre V6 engine. ‘The world has been waiting for us to do a two-seater small sports car – it really is in our blood and our heritage,’ enthuses Julian Thompson, head of advanced design. ‘It cements the sporting character of the Jaguar brand and takes us to where we need to be. And it was a chance to do something a little more edgy and sporty for our younger customers. It is very much the car we’ve been dying to do.’
Price: Around £50,000
Production: 2012

Taste

“沒有所謂的壞品味,沒有糟糕的品味,也沒有廉價的品味,只有所謂的品味。

如果要形容品質不好的東西,就用品味之外其他的詞形容。”
