    @Bremenacht I don't see how the Jensen Interceptor is a estate. It's a fastback in styling.
    I thought the type was "shooting break"
    A shooting break as far as I am aware is just a posh name for an estate.

    It's the 80s coming back again, everything is overcomplicated. Swooping curves, big wings and vacuformed bells and whistles are stuck all over the bodywork until the car looks like someone with Parkinsons had an epileptic fit while going for an origami world record.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    And 'estate car' is a pretty posh name as well when you think about it.

    Looking at the etymology of estate car it does look to have a fairly posh origin.

    Station wagon and wagon are the common names in American and Canadian English, while estate car and estate are common in the rest of the English world. Both names harken to the car's role as a shuttle, with storage space for baggage, between country estates and train stations.

    I guess because us common folk have appropriate the name this required the introduction of shooting break.

    I spelled it wrong. Shooting Brake. Consensus is that its a two door coupe front with an estate's tailgate.

    Except goole imagines search for shooting brake shows me a few 4 door examples. Mercedes and Maserati both seem to make 4 door shooting brakes.

    It's sounds to me like it may be a term with no definite meaning. Or some manufacturers don't care if it does have a definite meaning.

    That new Supra is great. Toyota churns out the dullest selection of vanilla shit, so it's nice to see them go a bit bonkers.

    From Top Gear, just now



    No. Straight out of '70s British sci-fi TV.

    How do you sell an intensely unattractive car like this?



    Why, by adding hamsters, of course.



    You can youtube the full advert video if you like. I'll not link it. They even paid Lady Ga Ga enough to sing for it. Ugh.

    I'm still struggling to understand how this is supposed to work. Will adults be influenced by 'cool' hamsters in DJs enough to buy an ugly little shitbox? Will children nag parents into buying a car like wot the hamsters drive? I just don't get it. I don't get how anyone else can get it.

    It's ugly, but it's also mental, something that I do like. I'm torn, but it's probably more ugly than mental.

    @Bremenacht

    Dunno, I have seen worse than that Kia, Mini's SUV monster for example. Also, even Top Gear needs a hamster, and Lady Gaga generally makes everything more awesome.

    Good lord. What is that thing on the door for? To stop being dinged your doors? FFS. I'd rather have door dings. No, actually I would rather have ropes and tires around the edge like a boat

    Yeah, apparently that's exactly what it's for. It's leather with "air pouches" underneath. They used it on the sides, the front and the back and it supposed to save you from getting minor damages.

    Heh. Is it's Citroen's equivalent to the Juke then? Looks a similar chubster. I've got a feeling it would look a whole lot better were it not such an awful shade of green.

    Always fun to check the BS they come up with for these things.


    STYLE& USE
    The New CitroŽn C4 Cactus is a truly distinctive car that's full of functional, useful features.

    DARINGPERSONALITY
    Its unmistakable design is made instantly memorable by smooth, flowing lines free of harsh edges and incorporating a floating roof and quarter lights.

    LIGHTSIGNATURE
    Thereís a high-tech lighting signature with LED daytime-running lights and recessed headlights and 3D-effect lights complement the modern design at the rear.

    AIRBUMPģ,A CITROňN EXCLUSIVE
    Airbumpģ technology neatly sums up the fundamental purpose of good design; to combine style and practicality. Fitted to the sides of the car, Airbumpģ adds a graphic structure to the pure, smooth body lines of the New CitroŽn C4 Cactus.

    Available in four colours (Black, Grey, Dune and Chocolate), they can be matched with the ten body colours to offer a wide range of customisation options but above all they provide real day-to-day protection, as the supple TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) skin comprises air capsules to absorb impacts. Airbumpģ requires no specific maintenance and reduces the chance of annoying and unexpected repair costs.
    The result is an attractive, functional innovation that makes city driving a more relaxing experience.

    I think even BMW had the balls to laud the design of their most horrid abominations, instead of anxiously hoping that no one would mention the design. It's a bizarre world.

    BMW i8. Wow. I just had the chance to have a good look at one in front of a dealership. It's not going to be to everyone's tastes but I LOVE it. They've produced a concept car! It's fabulous
