There's a new version of Renault's Twingo being shown at the Paris Auto Show. I enjoyed renting these when I was in Europe in the 1990s. Weird interior graphics, oddly curved car. Very chick-mobile in the US parlance, but kinda cool. The new one appears to be pushing ahead the car<->computer connection with USB ports, webcam, internet connection, bluetooth, and socket connections (of what type?) at each seat. Hey Renault, want to try the US market again?
Heading further into "not in the States" car territory, we have what some Finnish students think would make a good city cab. Let me applaud absolutely anything other than a Crown Vic.
Meanwhile Ford has made the F-450 available (in the new model) as a consumer pickup with a new diesel engine. Why? "The trailer builders will be writing us thank-you letters because they can sell trailers with granite countertops and fireplaces." Okay.Posted by duver001 at September 29, 2006 3:27 PM | TrackBack
