Volkswagen white up!

Before I'll publish my Test Drive with the nice VW up! tomorrow I share today some of my own snaps from the IAA - Frankfurt Motor Show with you. The Motor Show took place in September this year in Frankfurt, Germany, and the up! was one of the Cars that got presented to the public there for the first time.

Do not forget: I asked all of you for Questions you have about the up! and its still now to late if you have one, two or more things you'd like to know about Volkswagen's new small Car!
Write me an e-Mail or write your Question(s) below, thanks! Every Question will get an Answer! EVERY!! ;)

Automotive Fashion: Audi Collections A1 Softshell Jacket



Hey Guys
What a bargain I did on eBay a few weeks ago: a (almost) brand new Audi A1 Soft Shell Jacket. I got it for only about 20 % of the real shop-price, so that helps me to get over that I can at least not wear this one until March, April or later in 2012.

Event: Car Fetish. I drive, therefore I am - Museum Tinguely Basel





Hey Guys

Yesterday there was a talk with the title "Car Fetish" ("Fetisch Auto") at the Zeppelin Museum in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Even just cause of the title I couldnt miss this event!!!

It started at 7 pm but already since 5 pm there was space for car addicts, like me, they were showing the original film "Herbie rides again" ("Herbie groß in Fahrt") by Robert Stevenson from 1974.

Roland Wetzel, Director of the museum Tinguely in Basel, Switzerland, presented us the exhibitition that took place in his museum from June to October this year. There just couldn't be a better name than "Car Fetish. I drive, therefore I am." (" Fetisch Auto. Ich fahre, also bin ich") for it, definitely!!!

The Karma does it with only 2.1l






Hey Guys


What nice news today: the LUXURY SEDAN but also ELECTRIC VEHICLE Fisker Karma just achieved a ALL-ELECTRIC RANGE of 83 km and with the range extender it only needed 2.1l/100km - wow! And all this with only 51 g/km CO2.

The Karma is with its 400 HP definitely one of the most efficient, lowest emission automobiles available despite its size, performance and visual appeal.

New MUST-SEE Film: "Revenge of the Electric Car"




Hey Guys

We all know and love the dozens of movies with wheel spinning Cars, more powerful than little kids can actually count and all the fast rides on the motorways/ the autobahn. But now imagine all this with zero emission and in total silence - but with a plus of heart beating and probably more enthusiasms.

No, you don't need to be perplex now cause you can't imagine that such a movie/documentary could be fun, but belive me, you will like it!!

Revenge of the Electric Car is not only a movie, a film, a documentary, it's so touching and much more than these previous words could describe!

The world and especially the automotive world is now at a point of rethinking and fining new ways for transportation. Elon Musk, I could mention it a trillion times, is just a real genius! He knows what we, the people, really want without saying it or even thinking about it. Combining minimalistic with usabillity and add new technics and above all, break new grounds. That's not the only thing the documentation is about, but why not creating an own opinion?!

Unfortunately (I could cry right now!!) there aren't any release dates for Europe now, but keep on voting for your own City or the next bigger city where you live, and hopefully it will find soon its way to Europe! (more Infos below!)

You're from the US? Here are a bunch of the upcoming new release dates:

Hey Guys




It's not very often that you can "touch" the Posts of a Blog, but in this (and my) case this time it's true - you can hold pictures published here in your own hands, or on your head, you can touch it with your feet, ...

The Prestige Cars Magazine published my golden DeLorean DMC-12 pictures and wrote the story of it - WOW!

It's such an honor to see your own product in so many shops all over and a huge thanks to Prestige Cars for making everything possible!

Interested in having one by yourself? Check out HERE where you get this Mag.
