    Re: IAA 2011 visit - picture thread

     Apart from the 991, the highlights for me:

    1. The very green Mercedes SLS

    2. The Audi Quattro concept

    3. The BMW i8 concept

    4. The leggy brunette

     

    Great pictures - thanks!

    Re: IAA 2011 visit - picture thread

    ...what a stuuuupid thread - I spent almost an hour enjoy...working myself through the pics !! And, where is the wine, where are the bread sticks ???

    ...ok, thanks anyway...


    Re: IAA 2011 visit - picture thread

    ...I will go there monday afternoon to have a look at this new ducktail ......I think I like that....


    Re: IAA 2011 visit - picture thread

    Did Porsche really only have two 991 models on display?


    Re: IAA 2011 visit - picture thread

    Thanks so much Lars ... superb effort 

    The Audi Urban looks cute :)

    The SLS AMG Roadster has less wow factor than the gull wing door version IMO.

    Can't believe they are still making the Maybach ... and the VW Beetle is ugly too ...

    The 991 in blue looks absolutely stunning ... simply gorgeous!

    I really like the 20 inch Carrera S wheels :)

    The matte grey & tan Aventador looks the best car there .... simply off the scale looks.

    The Bentley GTC looks really bland ... 

    The RIMAC car looks interesting ...

    Agreed - the Maserati brunette model looks stunning ... usually Lamborghini has good models too ... what happened?

    I like the Maserati SUV ... very nice for a SUV.

    Fisker cars look a bit fugly ...

    I also like the Range Rover Evoque ... looks eye-catching.

    The Brabus logo really needs some re-designing ...

    I really like the Jaguar C-X 6 ... looks very attractive.

    I also like the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe ... such presence! Nice number plate "JE 1" .... fit for Jesus himself :)

    BMW i8 Concept looks amazing.

     Apparently they only had one in the front (the blue one). The duck tail was behind in a small  room. I just went there - two more people in the room, enough space to take a lot of pictures Smiley

    Easy: The SLS Roadster looks IMO very very good in real. It looks lighter and more flat than the gullwing

    The Beetle looks actually quit qute and not so bad in real

    The 991 - yes the 991 is a stunner. Much much better the more I see it. The car is indeed very beautiful!!!

    The Maser SUV was for me just hideous and the comments of people around me was going in the same direction - no one, really no one was giving good comments

    The Jag C-X6 was actually my second favorite car. I hope they bring it up in real - looks very very good!

    Thank you very much for the pictures. Must be great to have a fast internet connection...

    Re: IAA 2011 visit - picture thread

    Matt C:

    Thanks very much Lars - some really stunning cars.

    Just why, oh why, didn't  you start your post with the new 991  

     

    Actually I thought about, but I wanted to give you the impression I had while walking through the IAA. All the cars who catched my attention I took a picture. There are many many "normal" cars around. And even "normal" sport cars which we have seen often before. So I thought I give a wild collection of various cars in the exhibition walk perspective. Further on - the 991 I did a bit more detailed Smiley


    Re: IAA 2011 visit - picture thread

    intouch1:

    great report...thanks.

    all the tuners are hideous.....

     

    Yep - not even one tuning cars which I would say it is worth the go for. Nevertheless, the tuner Hall is one of the most interesting to see. 

    I conclude that the manufactures learned how to sell already well equipped and good looking cars, the tuning market just went smaller. Further on - the tuner have to get crazy to stand out and this craziness is close to hideous!

    @ Lars
    Thank you so much for the pics and your efforts
    I wonder why they almost didn't  show the BMW 6 as it was already on their website and configurator.
    Any news on Panamera?
    Thx in advance.

    Can you take a side profile picture with the roof up if possible? I'm looking everywhere for such a picture but without luck

    Thanks for the effort Lars! It convinced me to try and visit during the last weekend!


    Re: IAA 2011 visit - picture thread

     Blue 991

    Aventador

    458 spyder

    All look great.

     

    Does anybody actually buy these tuner mod cars? They are quite disgraceful!! does anyone actually see them on the roads in Europe or NA??


    Re: IAA 2011 visit - picture thread

    991

    Audi Quattro Concept

    SLS Roadster

    Mercedes G class

    Aventador

    Everything else, especially the tuned cars, not really my thing.

    Thanks a lot for your effort, Lars...and for the heads-up via SMS.  

    Great thread. 

    Btw: I agree, the tuned models seem to be hideous. Maybe tuners should concentrate a little bit more on classy optical enhancements (it is possible !), interiors and of course technical enhancements like chassis and engine.

    Well...apparently the cars weren't that interesting.  Smiley

    I'm even surprised Alfa Romeo still exists, same with Lancia.

    Re: IAA 2011 visit - picture thread

    From the floor (as opposed to publicity) pictures the 458 Spyder looks very toy-like. No dynamism and a confused and busy  rear end design. Where have all the Pininfarina designers gone?

    The Aventador makes a real supercar statement

    Carlos from Spain:

    Lars! thank you! great shot collection, especially the detail shots of the 991 

    The Lambo is indeed very nice evolution in their design. The Maser SUV is hideous  and the tuner versions  

     couldn't have said it better myself. agree with every word. 

    Thanks Lars  Smiley
