Those stuffer-uppers of BioPower stories, Drive (Fairfax Press, Aust), have a feature on car-themed Christmas presents and the Saab kids rocker gets a mention, amongst the Ferrari skis, Fiat jackets, and my personal favourite – the Mini slotcar set.
The rocker is $279 and available through Saab. I’ve seen one in person in Melbourne and they’re a great little piece of decorative furniture.
AutoExpress have an article on Google Earth’s views of manufacturer’s test tracks around the world. Many of these are shrouded in secrecy at ground level but they can’t escape the eagle eye of the satellite.
There’s 10 or so of them there and they’re cool to check out. Below is the Fiat facility, the most impressive IMHO. What I’d give for a day and a few cars on this little baby!
