I like how the Ginettas wheel arches mould into canards, lovely little detail.

Now that is how a Subaru should look. Bit too many gauges but overall very nice.

For a modified car, that's amazing, but for me... The Zonda F is a real life banshee. It needs no introduction...

Jag CX for me, the concept was insane, to actually see a running car is like finding a rare flower in the amazon that only opens once every 40 years.

Sir Stirling Moss,


What are your thoughts on modified cars today in comparison to that of yesteryear. When you were younger was there ever a style that you felt you would have developed for your own personal car?

@TheCrudMan  http://www.schrothracing.com/engineering I'm pretty sure Takata infuse similar technology into their FIA approved 4 point harnesses. I don't see a problem with using them on the road. You'll submarine to a degree in a 3 point too.

I actually quite like this. Still looks small and fun, interior is reasonably neat with the essential large tacho, proper gearbox and nice hugging seats. I'd be more than happy to snap one up if the engine specs are right.

Not so keen on the ridiculous camber, I can't help but think they would look so much better without it yet would still get the same attention. Other than that these cars are all amazing.

@skawars  also at the moment you can go to scrap yards to pick up parts and fit them to your car, would you trust an electric motor or battery (probably the reason its in the scrap yard in the first place) without testing it? Granted there is risk in all parts from merchants but I'm sure you can sort of see were I'm coming from.

@guReMcO  Other companies still want to pull in hundreds of millions from the tech they already have before they spend it on R&D. That's why you see a t5 turbo motor in the new focus st, an engine that's been around for nearly 20 years already in volvos. Because R&D costs a bomb.

@w3rrd @robzor @JakWhite  exactly. Home remapping is a sure fire way to bust your car for those who don't know what their doing. Whereas before you could just adjust a screw on the carb and the cars back to normal. I don't doubt cars of the future are amazing at what they do. But they sure will cost us an arm and a leg to not be part of the cookie cutter society.

@skawars @JakWhite  For sure, but what I mean is as the batteries get older, they won't hold charge as well, especially in cold climates. This is like having a hole in your petrol tank rather than lower mpg. No doubt people do modify their cars with newer parts from revised models, but my reference is that at the moment almost any joe blogs can "modify" his/her car on their drive way without the need for expensive diagnostic computers to make sure it runs right. With electric motor swap outs, the number of people likely to electrocute themselves or not earth properly will go up if not done correctly. The Haynes manuals words of "disconnect the battery" really will come back to haunt us haha!

@NYporkdept  So far I've read two long term tests of the car and at around 25,000miles they've needed their drivelines replacing and have had problems with the screen on the console (which controls opening of the charger flap) good job the cars are still under warranty to be honest.

@NYporkdept @JakWhite  in theory, electric cars haven't been around long enough yet to know how long these motors will last. And I'm sure the electric motors in this car alone are definitely big bucks to replace. If they weren't the car wouldn't be anywhere near as expensive as it is. We will see, it was the same with the smart phone and touch screens, they were mega bucks when they first came out, now you can get a phone with touch screen for less than £60.
