Concept Car

Rev UP your engines!

Just yesterday, I went with my other PNSer.com buddies to the University of the Philippines Diliman to watch their “Rev UP!” event, where they showcased different cars from their student bodies, and I came to a realization that if you want art, you might as well get it done to your car rather than to your body, so you don’t have to worry about tattoo removal.

I swear, these cars are AWESOME! I’m not much of a driver, but I do appreciate beauty. And these cars are works of art, right down to the engines. Although, I am not much of a fan of the insanely large and loud speakers… I already lost my voice that day. I couldn’t afford shouting with my throat’ condition because of my fear of damaging my larynx further. XD

Anyway, I’m renting at computer shop right now but when our internet is back to normal, I’ll make sure to post photos. XD

The 2012 Opel Corsa <3

I think I’ve found my dream car… or rather my “future” dream car, I just hope that if I’m able to buy it, it would include a cheap auto insurance. XD

Meet the (rather stubby XD) 2012 Opel Corsa, a concept car designed by General Motors. Yep, you read it right… this lil’-hunk-a-metal won’t be released until 2012, due to the design that apparently still needs tweaking. This car was already shown during a week long Ferrari fair. GM also gave motorists a hint of what’s to come with this baby, showing off a diesel/electric hybrid of this car at the 2007 Frankfurt road show. And yes, I am a big fan of hybrid cars. XD

It’s just too bad that hybrid cars are not too big here in the Philippines. Even though the hybrid Toyota Prius was already released, Filipinos were not too excited about it, due to its price (P 2.2 million!!!) and the continuous price hikes of both diesel and electricity. Hybrid cars would have been such a great idea for the Philippines too.

I wish someone would hurry up and finish a water-powered car already, that way we can just use rainwater or tap water for fuel. XD

Of Future Cars… WHOOHOO!!!

Okay, I have to admit… I’m not a much of a “car” person. Truth be told, I’m more into Harleys than cars. But after seeing this on cable TV, I can’t help but SLOBBER at the thought of owning a car like this.

For those who don’t know yet, this car is (for me anyway) the best future car I have ever seen.

This beauty, my friends, is BMW’s newest high-tech baby, G.I.N.A., which stands for Geometry and Functions In “N” (meaning infinite) Adaptions. Ain’t she pretty?! XD

This newest concept car from BMW is very high tech. It’s body is made of a special high tech cloth that expands and shrinks at the push of a button, which is particularly useful when you lack space in your trunk to put stuff in. The cloth does this because the frame of the car itself is made of controllable metal bars and wires, which can open and close parts of the car like the hood, its doors and even it’s headlights. This is particularly cool since the headlights look like eyes when they open… XD

The control of the car itself is monitored by a powerful computer, which also activates the car to turn on or to go into standby mode (no more getting worried about locking your keys in your car!). When the car is on standby, and the owner returns to use the car, it’ll automatically start up and use the last saved settings used by the last person who use it.

The wires and cloth of the car not only changes on the outside, but also the INTERIOR as well. It can adjust the seats, the dashboard, etc. to fit the driver and the passengers needs.

So yeah, this car is SO TOTALLY AWESOME!!! (For me anyway… XD) But now that I think about it, this car probably isn’t fit with the streets here in the Philippines. Specially when it faces off against the King of the Philippine Streets… the Jeepney.

G.I.N.A. vs Jeepney? The G.I.N.A. would probably get owned pretty bad. Jeepneys have a lot of sharp, metal parts (specially the Jeepneys that happen to be a bit rusty XD) which can probably rip the G.I.N.A. to shreds.

Anyway, if BMW could make a G.I.N.A. car which runs on water, I’m pretty sure that THAT would be a big hit. In fact, I think any automobile that could work with water as its fuel source would be an instant hit. Specially with the oil prices today. ~_~

Maybe someone should invent a Harley-Davidson that runs on good old H2O… if somebody does that, I’ll use every bit of my salary to buy one. XD
