OC Auto Show 2011: Part 2

Back with some more coverage of the OC Auto Show. This post will cover a few factory cars that are new or appealing and some rare exotics.

The new Dodge Charger SRT8 is always nice to see. The new changes to the car are nice like the LED tail lights. The AWD and Hemi combination is highly desirable.

Hyundai Veloster is the new small hatch to compete against the Mazda2 and the Ford Fiesta. I have seen a couple of these modified that it’s actually pretty decent.

After taking a deeper look at the Mazda RX-8, I notice the pearl paint is only on the outside and the paint on the door jabs are just a dull flat paint. Rather disappointing and looks like they cheaped out.

Honda presented their concept of the new Honda CRV. I didn’t find it that great in appearance and looked rather like a Volvo in a bad way. Hopefully, the make some changes to it otherwise it’d be another ugly model like the second generation. The second generation was trying to be a first generation yet still being another car which failed in design. The first generation was great because it was unique to its own and the third generation is the same.

The Gumpert Apollo, the 4.2L twin-turbocharged V8 super car is coupled with a 100 kW (136 PS; 134 hp) electric motor. Easily on of the most impressive cars today.

The Perana Z-One is South Africa’s version of an Italian styled super car. A pretty nice looking if it didn’t have the tacky looking wheels.

  2. gotta say that I absolutely hate the direction they’ve gone in for the looks of the new Charger. I’m also not a fan of that particular Spyker. But I guess people are still buying these things so it looks I’m the one with the weird sense of style.

    • The Charger is really a hit miss with most people. I personally like the new face lift version of the current Charger over the old one. Plus the AWD and the V8 Hemi is a nice combination. The old one was over butch and aggressive which made me feel like it was overcompensating.

      The Spkyers are directed toward a pretty niche crowd. Its steam punk styling is unique and nice to look at, but definitely not for everyone.
