As I noticed I drifted away from what "The Car Addict" really was I want to start again with the things I really love: Model Cars. I hope I'll be able to post "Car of the Week's" again on a regular basis every Sunday!
The concept study Lamborghini Estoque was first unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 2008. At this time Lamborghini confessed to built this 4-seater up from 2012, but they already announced in May 2009 that they won'T built it as it "had not reached the production planning stage", as Stephan Winkelmann described.
However, it would have been Lamborghinis first Car to be produced in China (all the others are from Santa Agata in Italy).
It would have been also Lamborghini's first front-engine vehicle since the LM002 "SUV" in the late 1980s. The Price would have been up at $230,000, including a 5.2 litre V10.
It is always a nice to receive personal E-Mails by you and it's even nicer when you share your Story, your automotive Story. I'm really interested in "who YOU are" and there's nothing nicer than reading a nice Mail just after waking up ;)
Such as 18-year old Abhinand Venugopal. His biggest dream is to work for AUDI once he finished his automobile engineering studies. He also attached these nice Audi RS7 Sketch his E-Mail and I immediately wanted to share these ones with you.
What do you think, could this RS7 go on Production as a "real Audi"? For my Part, I think so!
Zurich might not be the center of the Universe nor the center of the Automotive World, but the upcoming 26th AUTO ZURICH Car Show is nevertheless a visit worth, I hope!
After some years of failed attempts to visit the fair in two weeks I'll really go and report (live) from it. To Zurich I will not go by car or plane, no, I'm traveling with meinfernbus :)

Yesterday I've attended the first Parking-Championship by transparo and I will continue writing here in german.
Overall, it was a nice and fun Event (even if it was already a bit too cold outside .. brr) and, what a Glory, a woman won the Competition. Congratulations to Sabine Langer!!
Am gestigen Sonntag war der Tage der Tage, der Tag DER ENTSCHEIDUNG und ein beachtenswerter Tag für die andauernden Mann-Frau-Einpark-Vorurteile.
Bei der 1. Transparo Einparmeisterschaft ging es schnell, im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes "umwerfend" und voller Emotionen zu. Der Duft von Ehrgeiz lag in dem tief sitzenden Nebel über dem ADAC Gelände in Landshut nahe München.
Als die Humane-Uhr 10 Uhr schlug ging es los: Vorstellung, Einweisung und Los.
Am Vorabend hat jeder der Teilnehmer bereits ein Täschchen mit Jacke und Team-Nummer bekommen. Die durch die transparo Facebook Seite ermittelten Gewinner durften noch eine Person für den seelischen Beistand und zum "händchenhalten&q…
