Grey is the new Champagne

Post  Toad on Wed Dec 17, 2008 3:40 pm

Blew up the photo and tried to divine what was what: Don't think the little grey one is a Prius, might be a Scion, but the emblem looks to be some sort of econo Suzuki.

Could not identify any of the hippos by sight, or name plate, and I could not bring myself to bother with them. What are there, about a hundred different SUV's on the market now?

The Greyish people carrier is actually a food service delivery truck, a Semi.

The one coming up the hill is a Honda Element.

There's also a little red compact behind the semi.

The Nissan is mine, 2004 Maxima SE. Grey, cause like SF it's easiest to avoid excessive cleaning.

Overall I'd say SUV's are finally beginning to decline in popularity, Especially the Ford, Chevy, and Chryslers. Though in the rich neighborhoods, I still see lot's of Lexus', Porsches, and Range Rovers. Most of these guys lease them and are prolly waiting for them to run out. Can't see the "elite" driving Prius' as they don't project power (owner's power not the car) enough, so I expect to see even more 7 and 9 series BMW's and bloated Mercedes and Cadilacs in Champagne.

Ok, let's get anal:
the SUV on the left is a Nissan Murano, first generation
to the right, a Lexus RX, scond generation
to the right: Toyota LandCruiser 100 or maybe a Lexus LX

I can see a greyish-blue people carrier at the lights.
The little one in front is actually a first generation Prius

Don, when you first posted your fuzzy photos of the R8, I wondered why would he bother snapping shots of an Audi street car? I have always admired the Audi A4, especially the 98-2002 versions, but was never impressed by the looks of the later A series models. I just assumed you were looking at the new sedan A,B,C 8 or whatever they call them now.

Today that changed for me, Now I get it. While at work today on a small street I saw a low black car approaching from a couple hundred meters away. Nothing unusual in this particular rich neighborhood, but there were these odd white running lights below and around the headlights. As he came closer I noticed the Audi grill. Ok, this is different; I still did not know what I was looking at as it putted past me. I did not mind the driver (with the obligatory douchetooth in his ear) not deigning to look at me because I was completely taken with the beauty of this cars body design. As he poop pooped away I saw the R8 on the rear. I then realized this is what Don is on about!

This thing makes the Ferrari 430 look frumpy, I hope the owner is a local as next time I'll have the Iphone at the ready. I'm on it now.

well, we are quite used to see these full_of_power cars in every game, but how much used are we when they pass near us in real life.

The first time i heard the R8 engine sound i was quite impressed. She is a rocket, she sound like a Ferrari F430, she has (imho) better design (if you dont choose the grey fade...).

Now, I have a new picture but, this time is not a gorgeous supercars... I don't know how they called in english, but is a "blue car" (directly from italian Auto Blue). These cars are given to politicians/magistrates. They are bought and maintained with citizen moneys. Look how smart is italian government:



Also this car has about 6 months. A 5 litres petrol BMW series 7... An executive town car of 11l/100km! Now, why they buy german cars instead buy diesel engine icons like Lancia Thesis, Alfa Romeo 159?

money wasting...

Last week I saw a DB9 in Berlin but I was cameraless. My car radio played at this time the title song of A Quantum of Solace - as true as I am writing here.

While driving to London today, I think I saw this baby. Unfortunately, I didn't have the camera out, and we were driving the opposite direction on the motorway anyway... Sad I know for sure that it was a Ferrari, just not sure of the exact model.

While browsing through my iPhoto library I found some older pictures which I shot in Berlin.

Nice Messerschmitt


Tuk-Tuk-Tuk


Black Forest advertising
(This is the traditional Black Forest girl's costume for the hat)

Some special shots: During movie shooting for "Valkyrie" in 2007 - VW Kuebel


... and a Mercedes truck. Lots of these statists felt down from the truck in a sharp turn, because the tailboard on one side wasn't locked. Some casualties ...

For some reason since today I am a Bugatti fan. So I stopped at the Automobilforum Berlin, which I pass nearly every day by car, and took a few shots of these fast cars:

well, just after the Val's scoop...

Here a new muscle monster american big foot car...



well... car... is a 3tons pickup truck. The smart guy owning the truck, certainly saw me get the picture. So, when he went doing his stuff, he just kicked the accelerator pedal... I think forgot the ASR, or the handbrake on. Loud sound, but nothing impressive, also destroying the automatic gearbox...
