Mrs Swade and I are playing tourguide this week to some friendly Canadians so new postings here will be sporadic at best. I thought a little visual fun might be in order.
I’ve dug out these images from Geneva 2011, the first appearance of Jason Castriota’s Saab PhoeniX Concept Car. It caused quite a split of opinion at the time but most people I know came around and gave it varying degrees of warmth – from lukewarm to love.
I ended up loving it, but then I had the good fortune to see it in person, sit in it and see it on the street. You have to see these cars in person and seeing out of an auto show environment is even better.
I’ve included some darker images here on purpose. The special liquid metal paint finish really shows up its contours in the darker shots.
Click to enlarge and enjoy. Thought in comments, of course. It’s great to see the young lady at her absolute best once again (as opposed to her damaged state some months later).
