Product placements can be the best thing for a company and its products. But they can also be a kiss of death. Take Aston Martin for example. Most people recognize the brand for its association with James Bond and quite frankly many people like that.

At the 79th Geneva Motor Show, the Dutch car builder Spyker unveiled their new car, and it is a stunner. It’s called the C8 Aileron. While mechanically this new version isn’t any different from their previous offering, hence it still has an Audi sourced 4.2-liter, V8, producing 400 hp.

That is where Alpina comes in, a company that has been modifying BMW since 1965. Their models are now even covered under BMW’s warranties. Continue reading

Many are calling it ‘the baby Roller’, however that is just in perspective really, because the Rolls Royce 200EX concept is no compact hatchback. In fact, at 212.6 inches long, it is 13 inches longer than a BMW 7-series. However it is smaller than the Phantom, even though not by much (435mm shorter to be exact). You don’t get a downsized engine either, this one still gets a V12, so if you are a bit of an environmentalist, this car won’t be for you. Continue reading

I have an interesting question to ask; what do you get when you cross-breed a station wagon with a sport utility vehicle? You get the Audi A4 Allroad. OK, this isn’t exactly a new concept. Audi has been selling Allroad variants of their A6 model since 2000, and while the model was discontinued from the North American market in 2005, they still sell them in decent numbers in Europe.
