The Onyx and other concept cars…

I’ve been insanely busy lately and haven’t had much time to blog. But I saw this today and had to do a quick post on it and concept cars in general.

Like something Bruce Wayne would drive himself, comes Onyx, a concept car by Peugeot. Now personally Peugeot’s wouldn’t be my first choice of car as I the style doesn’t suit my taste necessarily. I’m sure they’re great and know lots of people with 207s as their first car with no complaints. But this BEAST had me at ‘h’… nevermind ‘hello’.
Concept cars are a strange thing because generally they herald the direction a car company is going. They’re not coming tomorrow, or next week, or next year or ever even. What happens is someone gets a few million to let their imagination run wild. But, I think this is what we need in today’s motor designs. Imagination. A Fiat 500, is a Fiesta Style, is a VW Golf is a Peugot 208 these days. Cars are all so samey.

The last truly original cars that I’ve seen on the road in modern times are things like the Nissan Figaro, the Fiat Multipla and the Smart Car coupé. I feel like Audi are going down that road too but haven’t quite reached it. Also, those cars mentioned may be original but that’s not to say they’re attractive. the Multipla for example makes me heave. But it is different, I’ll give them that.

Here’s some concept cars I wish were in the common market-

Citroen’s Number 9 – oozes business elite.

Another Citroen – the GT – like something out of PS Game Wipeout.

Plymouth – retro meets new.

Bugatti – four doors? Still cool
