  1. Auto makers are showing off their latest concept and new production models during the press preview days.

    With its F700 concept, Mercedes-Benz presented its idea for a luxurious sedan that has low emmissions, and good performance with minimal fuel consumption.

    Toyota's iQ compact concept car may spearhead the company's drive to boost sales in Europe.

    Lamborghini has priced its Reventon at a cool million – euros that is ($1.4 million). The Italian unit of Volkswagen says it has already sold the 20 cars it plans to build.

    Ford plans to sell a production version of the Verve in both the U.S. and Europe. It will slot in below the Focus in the company's model line and shows Ford serious about small cars again.

    Opel's Flextreme concept car uses a hybrid powerplant that includes an electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery that is charged by a diesel engine. It is designed to go 55 kilometers (34 miles) on battery power alone.

    The Jaguar XF features an aggressive-looking front grille and curvaceous shape, and is intended to herald a more daring look for the brand following years of formal lines -- and huge losses -- under the ownership of Ford

    While in the U.S. crossover SUVs are all the rage, wagons remain popular in Europe and there were several expected to be shown in Frankfurt. Audi added two turbochargers to its top-of-the-line V-10 engine to create the RS6 Avant with around 580 horsepower.

    Mercedes-Benz introduced a wagon or "Estate" version of its recently revamped C-Class sedan. The top model will be an AMG tuned version with a 457 horsepower V-8 engine.

    VW's up! is a rear-engine, three-door, four-seat city car that could compete with the Smart.

    [​IMG]Another "global car" is Audi's A4, which has been redesigned for 2008 with new exterior and interior styling. The A4 will come as either a sedan or wagon and hit the European market next month.

    BMW calls the X6 a Sport Activity Coupe that combines the styling of its X3 and X5 SUVs with the look of its coupes. The concept also has a hybrid powertrain.

  7. Oh, and I never thought I'd combine the words, "god awful" and "Lamborghini" in the same sentence. But the latest offering is making me rethink.
  8. I agree, kinda fugly.
  9. haha yea, the RS6 must be VICOIUS! What I wouldnt give to be able to drive one daily :drool:

    That X6 has potential though, looks so sleek from its profile, wonder if they'll actually produce it?
