    Green just got really sexy.

    This is sweet, and coming soon, to the LA Auto Show.
    Spent so much on Cards tickets, don't know if I can make the Auto Show, but I'm sure going to try.

    You're looking at our dream car. We gave you a sneak peek at this car two months ago, but now the for-real prototype is coming to the U.S., and we have more details about its unique specs. This BMW Vision is a diesel plug-in hybrid that cranks out an awesome 356 hp. But the astonishing part? It packs that impressive wallop and still gets 63 miles per gallon. Like the Chevy Volt, it travels a short distance on all-electric power (it can go 31 miles, a few less than the Volt's claimed electric range), but has a total range of 431 miles when you tap its 6.6 gallon diesel fuel tank.

    Besides its green credentials, just look at it! It's more conventional-looking than that crazy BMW we showed you last month, but it's still a concept car, meaning that a body style this radical probably won't be showing up on real-world production lines anytime soon. It's way beyond the illustration stage, though — you're looking at a prototype that'll be rolled out next week at the Los Angeles Auto Show. We look forward to the day when cars like this will be commonplace.

    Don't like it. Just give me an old Dodge Charger.

    Even for new car standards, it doens't look that good.

    That's why I could never, ever wear green and gold.

    Re: Green just got really sexy.

    Isn't what I expected when I first saw the thread.
    Infact, I left this one until I had waded through all the others cause I thought I would have to go down a different path......

    Well played and a damn nice looking ride.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    That's one sexy ride!

    exactly.
    If I was rich enough to buy one of those, I want a car that is fast, and packs a whallop.
    I don't care if it
    gets 1mpg.

    356 hp isn't exactly a pinto.

    Pretty cool car. It looks like a good candidate for the next transformers movie. Before that happens I would like like to see a scantily dressed Megan Fox on the hood of it just to see if they are compatible
