We were wrong...
...though we should have known it better. At our article on OZ Racing wheels we said that
the Formula 1 Ferraris are fitted with OZ rims but that's not the truth. The Ferraris
roll on BBS wheels. OZ is official supplier of a lot of F1-teams but we have picked
out the wrong one, sorry!
We were right...
...in saying at our news column that Skoda plans a Combi [ station wagon ] model of the
Superb. This was an insider information and, no other auto magazine has mentioned
this fact, as far as we know. Now, at the beginning of this year, the Czech manufacturer
decided to make it come true.
...we think Italian
A special talent of us seems to be anticipating future plans of Italian motor manufacturers.
In our report on the Alfa Romeo 156 GTA we said that the FIAT sister brand should have
courage to launch a second evo series on an higher level, respective to Audi's RS line
because Alfa Romeo is a make of an appropriated reputation to sell cars like that. And,
indeed, recently the Italians have presented such a concept car on an Italian auto show to
check its acceptance out.
That Lamborghini is going to show a Roadster basing on the Murcielago was no secret in contrast
to its look. Now, the car is introduced and its windows' side profile looks similar to those of
our Lambonino concept - but not so radical like it - and, the A-column is black too. Ok, this design
suggests itself but it's nice that the Lamborghini designers thought the same way we did.
One amongst the most delightful moments of analysing our site statistics was when we noticed
that one of our concept cars was shown on other websites. That's really pretty good, we liked
that and, if you are an owner of an auto website and you think that one of our works is worth
to be presented on it, don't hesitate! We don't mind as long as you add a link to us.
German car mania
The concept of our site aims at providing information about, numbers from, and the latest
trends on Germany's roads. Ok, we did and do our very best to add some nice stories and
decorations as our concept cars but the site is conceived to be a window into the Autobahn
country from outside. Nevertheless, Germany was leader of the country chart of our site
statistics in 2002, though our compatriots were the last ones we make this site for. And,
there is no other nation whose access rates increase as much as those of the Germans.
