A car thread! :)

Post by Borgleader » Tue Sep 01, 2009 2:25 pm

I'm sure there are car fans on this forum, so let's start a little discussion, shall we? The subject is simple, cars!

I'll start with something slightly "out of the ordinary" as it is BMWs new car. The so-called Vision EfficientDynamics concept, a 356 horsepower, turbo-diesel hybrid that'll do 0-60 in 4.8 seconds and get 75 miles to the gallon. (source)

Personnally I loooooove the design :)

Awesome design! It somewhat reminds me of the Lamborghini Murcielago.
Superb cars! 8)

I love that the doors look like fly eyes or something?

I love the bmw z4 coupe - that's a not-too-expensive car that I've driven and loved very much. You can rent them from sixt.de in germany for only 99€ per day (and then drive 260kph down the autobahn in them). ;D

Hah! A bmw is very special in new zealand. All the fine german cars are. My neighbour he has a trabant and it is as powerful as 5 horses! We can use one to turn over the soil in our fields and make our potatoes grow so much more!

@dougal2: Nice cars indeed! :)

@Purespider: Well you see, BMWs don't "rain" in Canada and so they are still special, or at least to most people I know. Also, most audi's are very nice cars but, I must say the R8 is one of my favorites

Yes - an r8 would be an amazing car. Snowboard racks on the roof, caravan hooked up on the back - good times.
