  • upiros 13th March 2012 | 22:06
    Production:even if it's not 100% production & dislike some detail (exhausts, for example) I would take the Shelby.
    Concept: it's interiors & use of new materials make me chose the BMW Connectivedrive...think investigation is quite important in a concept & it does so,thought I like more the style of the 4C
  • bassam 13th March 2012 | 22:08
    Production Car: Volkswagen Up
    Eye-relieving design, an idea on its own.

    Concept Car: BMW ConnectedDrive
    Non-Isometrically lines also can be beautiful, a piece of art where you lay down some lines and don't have to do the same on the other side.
  • NuruiGumi 14th March 2012 | 00:00
    Production Car: Huayra
    I understand the hate but I just love it, I think it's wild and bold and just has an amazing cool factor about it.

    Concept Car: B99
    I think this car is beautiful in it's simplicity and proportions. It doesn't need any crazy body lines or spoilers or huge angry eye led headlamps. It's refined yet sporty look screams jag.

    concept car: cadillac CIEL
    Production car: Pagani huayra ,because it is a masterwork and a beauty
  • Aonepathan 21st April 2012 | 20:00
    Pagani Huayra, Horacio truly used the terms 'art and science' to create this beautiful machine, even if similar to the Zonda, it's just incredible.

    BMW Connected Drive, a retrospect car designed just like the Cadillac Ciel and Jaguar Bertone but this weighed in because of the concept: Mobility through technology and user interaction with the Blue, Green, and Red light waves. Plus has the 'cone vision' from the previous EfficientDynamics and i8.
