Sydney International Motor Show 2006 – Part 2
Part Two of Three, enjoy. WARNING:Picture intensive post.
Two of some of the more interesting concept cars were the Honda Sports 4 and the Mazda Kabura. Though I liked the Mazda Kabura more than the Sports 4 but the Sports 4 had some pretty awesome headlights. I was kind of more disappointed in the European cars as many didn’t seem to have any new concepts or any of the more sporty cars for show but I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Lotus Elipse, Excige, and the new Europa S.
I also got the chance to sit in the MX-5 and Honda S2000. Now I’ve known the MX-5 had a good shifter, but the S2000 just blows it out of the water. the two roadsters are quite nice but I’d prefer the S2000, and the S2000 is half the price of the BMW Z4 M Roadster. Also funny to see the Mayback as well, as I recall on Top Gear they said it was a first class jet that can’t fly.
The new Nissan concept seems to be utilizing the same idea that teh Mazda RX-8 has with the swing open doors. Also I got a good look at the 350Z and had a chance to sit in it, as when I went last time two years ago, they had the doors locked. Right, one more post to go!
Note: Seeing a fat guy try to fit into an RX-8 was the funniest thing EVER!
