THE INFINTI ESSENCE IS HAWT

If I could be anywhere on the planet today, I'd have an easy decision on my hands: the 79TH International Motor Show in Geneva. Last year, in some post I can't seem to locate, I predicted that I wouldn't miss this years show. Obviously that didn't work out, but I have spent the afternoon reading about and oogling the dreamy new cars. Although the Aston Martin One-77 is re-dunk-u-lous and would look lovely parked next to a Rolls 200EX in my dream garage, what I really aspire to own, is this concept from Infiniti: The Essence (cheesy name).






Someone at Nissan had the brilliant idea of plucking the insane motor from a GT-R and supplementing it with a 150-HP electric motor for a combined 600 or HP. I'm about to commit automotive heresy, but here goes: THIS IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CAR EVER. More so than the famed Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic (click here to see Ralph Lauren's whip). Those suitcases? Louis Vuitton. Whew. Just LOOK at that crease between the A and C pillars! Desperately gorgeous...

It looks stunning!

Have you seen the £1 million Aston Martin!? WOW!

Yes, I have! I eve linked to it in this post. It's stunningly pretty, although too derivative of current Aston's to justify the astronomical price (at least in my mind).

Sorry, but especially from the side, this car kind of screams Corvette, which is fine if that's what you're into.

Personally I'm a Triumph whore and will take this bike any day over your fancy autos.

So basically you are not a good psychic?

That is a HOT car though.
