    1. Sadly they don’t make stuff like this anymore. They make similar stuff but nothing near as insane.


    2. I don’t understand why they don’t make their concept cars. 90% of concept cars look frackin’ jawsome. And then, when they make the actual car, it’s essentially the same as their last one, except maybe a bigger grill.


    3. And the more I look at it, it almost looks like a highly detailed model…its hurting my brain.


    4. @DavidtheLast:
      It is a model. I can tell from da pixelz’n’stuff.


    5. @Luke
      This car was in production. the xj220 hung on to fastest production car until the McLaren F1 in 1994.


    6. @LukeV1-5: Most Concept cars are too expensive to make, or there isn’t enough demand. Both the Dodge Viper and Dodge Challenger (new) started as concepts, and it was only with a massive mailing campaign that Chrysler decided to make either.

      I remember in particular a Jeep concept, I think it was the hurricane. It had two engines, and omni-directional steering.


    7. They didn’t ask me if I would buy one. I totally would.

      also, clearly, their sales methods did not work.

      Just puttin’ that on the table, thar.


    8. Hey lets use our bailout money to make a really expensive car that looks awesome, and no one can afford. surely that will stop us from needing this bailo… oh right we already tried that.


    9. But they didn’t try it. They made shit cars, and no one bought them.

      Maybe, if they spend 10 years making just one fucking awesome car, their business model might actually fly, instead of jumping from shoddy design to shoddy design every month.


    10. @LukeV1-5, most concept cars look awesome, might even have some awesome specks, but are nowhere near production reliable. They’ve been so tooled and hand buffed and spit polished that they’d really come out to hundreds of thousands of dollars per car even after economy of scale considerations.

      Upjumping a glorified prototype to actual production would take another year and billions of dollars; or alternatively make a highly unreliable car that might fall apart in the rain, or in a slight breeze, or not actually live up to safety standards, who knows. Given that the prevailling joke about jaguars already is that you need to own three of them because on any given day two will be in the shop, I can see why Jag isn’t rushing to dump these on the market.

      I’m not saying that no concept car has been either practical or marketable. I’m just saying that they are the equivalent of the 2 million dollar diamond bra at the end of the Victoria Secret fashion show — they were never meant to be sold by the thousands, they exist soley as an act of spectacle to draw people into a brand.


    11. My brother suggested I might like this blog.

      He was totally right. This post truly made my day.
      You cann’t imagine just how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
