Tuning + Coachbuilding = New Sports Car
Carlsson C25


The best way to become a sports car manufacturer? Pick an existing chassis of your liking, invest in some tuning and apply a new body design. A simple recipe that many tuners from the past have used before. Often with great success, like for instance Alpine (Renault), Abarth and Moretti (Fiat), Lister (Jaguar) and more recent Guldstrand, Callaway and Anteros (all three on Corvette) and Saleen (Ford). German Mercedes Tuner Carlsson now performs the same trick by presenting the C25, a tuned and rebodied Mercedes SL600.

Can a small electric city car come in an attractive shape? Not if you let the big manufacturers design it. However, when Italian design houses interfere it can be so, says Jeroen Booij.

Devon GTX going down with Viper?
Devon GTX

A while ago we reported about the wonderful Dodge Viper-based Devon GTX, which was introduced during the '09 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. After the Viper brand went on the market, Scott Devon had made three different offers to buy Viper, which were sadly rejected by Chrysler CEO Bob Nardelli. Devon's production plans for the GTX may be in jeopardy, now that the Chrysler-Fiat Group have decided to kill the Viper.

Walter, what were you thinking?
Walter de'Silva Bugatti

We came across some scans from Quattroruote Magazine on the net, picturing a car that's supposed to be a Bugatti. It appeared to be a top secret design proposal by Walter de'Silva, now almost ten years old. Our first thoughts: Oh my God... Walter, what were you thinking?!
A Very Happy New Coachbuild Year !!
Happy New Year
The handsome lad who never made it to his prom
Ghia Chrysler Norseman

While studying the domain of classic coachbuilding one inevitably encounters many creations that have been lost forever. Wars, political and economic turmoil, accidents or simply rust have caused hundreds of unique cars and bodies to disappear into oblivion. Sometimes cars thought to have been lost for decades, miraculously appear back in the public - examples include the Pourtout Talbot-Lago T150C SS #90120, the Volvo Elisabeth II or the B124MR Bentley 4 ¼ Van Vooren DHC. But what about a car, the whereabouts of which has been known all the time, but which nevertheless has been considered lost for more than half a century now? Here is the story of the sensational Chrysler Norseman and of its unfortunate demise.
Rendez vous
Rendez vous Ferrari 250 GTO

Do you still remember your first great love? I'm sure you do. One never forgets his or her highschool sweetheart; the first secret meetings, school parties, the first kiss... Those were the days, but if you meet that one special person again after many years, it is yet to be seen if this person is still as nice and beautiful as how he or she lived in your memory. Both your lives have changed considerably since then. New partners come along, then marriage (or not) and maybe a bunch of children as well. Sometimes it is best to leave your romantic childhood memories as they were, because not every rendez vous will feel good.
For me, this story doesn't count when it comes to cars.
