    Mike posted about this car one page ago, :lol: but the interior photo just don't do justice.

    This is one of the best interior designs i've seen in a while. It's simple, clean, yet refined and raised the "luxury" bar. Imo.

    Agreed. The physical switches on the touchscreen are a fantastic idea, very similar to the way people have physical dials on digital speedometers in some cars. The combination of digital and physical is much better as you then avoid the tacky awfulness that is the interior of any Tesla. I've been very underwhelmed by the interior design of Land Rovers and Range Rovers recently, although the build quality is top notch I just think they've lagged behind in updating anything, this is a huge step in the right direction.

    The thing about the Velar is that no one has used the word concept and that it is meant to go on sale this summer, so I presume everything we've seen (including the inset door handles) will be going on the final production version, fingers crossed.

    Yeah, the switches on touchscreen is really something. Loving it aswell. Even though i dislike SUV's, the Velar takes my attention by it's extremelly well made design. Exterior and interior. That is a SUV i wouldn't mind owning. And for me, that's a first. :lol:

    Well done Land Rover, well done.

    Ah Geneva, the E3 for car enthusiasts. :D Lots of amazing drops and reveals to scour through. :nuts:

    I think I will start with the new McLaren 720S. I will say that it does look good but imo it doesn't look great. Maybe it is because I kind of have already seen it in GTA V. :lol: It is incredibly like the T20 despite that being made it look like a P1. Then again perhaps that's just what it is that I am not getting, this is taking the same styling cues from the lower-level McLarens and the P1 and this is what has been the result. There's something about the side profile, perhaps it's just too smooth for me. Not like that matters as I won't be in line to place an order anyway but hey I can still look right? Seeing it on the road might change my mind as has happened with many a car in the past.

    The newest 911 facelift does add some extra aggressiveness to the GT3 especially but that overbite is hard to miss when seen from the front quarter.

    Rapide AMR is a bit of a strange one. Being a vehicle that is designed more for covering many miles I cannot see a stiffer version being that sought after except for maybe those racing drivers who cannot use soft sprung vehicles due to their years of racing in back-breaking seats. (more in the past not so much now)

    It might just be me but I don't think that Bentley suits having the roof lopped off. There is something Jag about it when it is like this.

    I will say this though, if you are lucky enough to have mega amounts of money then the number of toy cars available to you are reaching a truly crazy amount. It seems there are more now than there ever has been and for the most part they are all absolutely stellar looking and do more right than wrong. :cool:

    Jag have put a 4-cylinder engine in the F-Type:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Quite liking that Murcielago-esque exhaust pipe.

    - It now costs £49,900, so it's trying to slot in between the Porsche 718 and the 718 S.
    - 295bhp, 0-60 in 5.4 seconds (almost a second slower than the 718 S, half a second behind the 718).

    Also worth considering more common/dull cars such as the new E-Class Coupé as a competitor for this at this price range, and I'd rather have the Jag tbh.

    Sounds more like it's competing with the Audi S3/Golf R, except that it's slower and costs more. :confused:

    I'd rather arrive at my destination slower and with less spare change in that 4 pot F-Type, than in the S3 or Golf R tbh. A 718S might entice me away from the Jaguar dealership but it might have to be a nearly new 718S as the options list will put the Porsche in the V6S and V8R F-Type price range very very quickly.

    I do like the S3 and Golf R, I like them a lot, but they're very very popular around where I live and even if they weren't, most non car fans wouldn't be able to tell the difference between them and an A3/Golf 2.0 TDI

    Totally agree with you - basically we can interpret this as Jaguar being confident with how desirable their current models are. Let's just hope their 4pot sounds somewhat decent.

    Has anyone read/watched the reviews of the new Ford GT? I'm not sure i'm a fan of it anymore :hmmm: The previous one was an amazing road car, this one seems as if it will be dreadful to drive on the road which is a shame. It does look like it will be an immense track car though, will we see it start beating other big supercars around tracks soon? I imagine so.

    Do wish they'd have kept with the V8 though, I understand the V6 is better for weight/economy for a race car, but most people will be driving it on the road, for which a V8 would be much better.

    BMW 8-Series concept leaked:

    images from http://www.jalopnik.com

    It has a similar silhouette to the Maserati Granturismo imo. But where does this fit into the model range? What is the difference between this and the normal 6 series coupé? They're both 4 seaters, I can't imagine this will be any bigger than what we're used to seeing from the 6 Series Coupé as that itself was already on the large side. So is this a sportier more nimble 911 competitor? Where does that leave the next 6 series coupé then? The current one has already stopped being manufactured :hmmm:

    This looks more like a Virage to me, maybe it will be some sort of supercar. As you've said, this is too similar to the six series.

    It looks a bit too bulky but I like it, also the front grille is too big imo. But, this is a concept, so we can imagine that the final version will have some differences. Btw, BMW pulled the plug off the 6 series coupé, so I think this wil be its replacement or maybe the will use the new gen 5 series as platform for the new 6er.

    Yeah this is a possibility, is it meant to be some sort of lalalala car for BMW? Considering Audi have had the R8 for a while now, and Mercedes have had the SLS and AMG GT, BMW are very late when it comes to these lalalala cars. The i8 doesn't really count as an R8 competitor imo.
