4860 – Auction Milano Autoclassica

McLaren
  4860 is the number of the registration given me by RM-Sotheby’s for the largest auction of cars, in according of the opinion of many, in the automotive history, and not only; inside the halls of the Fiera di Milano Rho for the winter edition of Milano Autoclassica. It was definitely a particular emotion participate in the auction, both as a spectator, but also from almost “buyer”...

Automotive factories, back to the roots?

Fiat-509
  We must get over it: the automobile, as we lived it, will disappear. Today we look with curiousness at former cars, which actually were carriages to which had been applied an engine, in a few years we will look at recent cars as something incredibly old. We have grown – we who are not so young anymore – with the myth of the horse power and the sportsmanship, then we knew the qualities...

Luxury brand have been trouble with the strange sore… Tesla!

2015-tesla-model-s
  I must say first of all that: the electric car fascinates me, I like its way to move without vibrations and with little noise. The electric engine seems to me elegant, with its round components which just rotate, almost without tremors. The efficiency is a byproduct of this elegance, with its 85/90% outclasses any internal combustion engine for automotive applications and it is comparable only...

What Dealers can learn from JFK?

JFK
  As well as fishing in Italy is miserably in bankruptcy due to a wrong management of the sea – which allowed exploitation of resources beyond the limit – so now someone would like to follow the same exploitation of the “vast automotive’s sea” by continuing to preserve entire species of fishermen thanks to artifices such as bonus, contributions and Government incentives. The...

Household Appliances or… cars?

Household
  Even if we do not know – at home – we ALL have a piece of the vehicle that has won numerous awards during the Rotterdam Shell-Eco Marathon, travelling along 5,000 kilometers with 1kWh of energy (the equivalent of a liter of gasoline). The engine of this 100% Italian vehicle – built by the school “ITIS Rossi” in Vicenza – is the motor of a… washing machine! Manufactured...

Hybrid Ideas …

Hybrid
  Hybrid Ideas … If automotive experts would stop saying stupid things about more or less electric vehicles, the world would be a better place. There is a whole variegated bunch of stupidities out there. Some are functional to elegant and content deprived ads and commercials. Well, to be honest, in this case we are dealing with plain lies. Others are technologically flavoured, sound highly innovative,...

A new European Brand: QOROS.

qoros
    QOROS. Remember this name. This is a new official brand since November the 28th, founded by a joint venture between Chery and Israel Corporation, with active operational participation of Magna (who wanted to buy Opel in 2009). A powerful agreement between the largest Chinese Car provider (for the last 8 years at least) and one of the biggest Israeli Holdings. The news was not emphasized...

Facts and figures unmask the 3 digit growth of the EVs theorem! Only Audi speaks clearly!

EVs
  Jato Dynamics presented the data of the EV’s registrations in Europe. Hooray: compared to 2010, the sales grew by 938%! Nine-hundred-thirty-eight percent!! A successful market, despite the controversies. I feel the bad smell of lies. Over 7 million registrations, 5,222 were electric cars, less than 0.001% of the total market. Last year were 507. In Germany 1,020, France 953, Norway...

The electric innovation: the voice of distrust

Innovation
  After the article on the test of Tesla Roadster: “Tesla Roadester: the electrical solution!” the criticisms forwarded privately surpassed public. Comments are welcome in any case because are made politely and with arguments of value that help us to better assess the facts. Before going on I state that what I wrote about the test is exactly what I think, without any kind of conditioning. The...

Tesla Roadster: the electrical solution!

Tesla
  Being professionally involved with innovation I couldn’t remain indifferent to the events of Tesla, intrigued by this Californian start-up created by a serial innovator as Elon Musk. The promotional road show, having Rome as one of its scheduled stops, was an opportunity I couldn’t miss and after some contacts by email I got in touch with Roberto Toro, Communications Manager Europe, who...
