This is an A-class sedan.



This is a CLA.

Merc has me utterly confused.
It created the A class. Then it made a sedan which they called the CLA (of which they also made an estate).
Then it went on to make a sedan of the A-class, which is the A-class sedan??

What's next, a 5 door Audi A5?

What is that in the background that looks like a stealth bomber?

Obviously if it was a true stealth bomber it wouldnt have been visible

It is the coupe version of the original stealth bomber. They will soon be launching a saloon stealth bomber as well.

A Class saloon has more room in the rear, CLA is quite cramped and lacks headroom. If you want a small saloon and will carry passengers, A Class it is. If youre young and your company car policy states 4 doors the CLA it is.

CLA also starts at a higher spec than the A Class saloon from memory

I spotted one of these today in Worksop on a “70” plate - an MG5 EV Estate!

Funnily enough I got cut up yesterday by an MG I didn't know existed, the HS, it was a 69 plate, so perhaps it was so generic I just hadn't noticed one before, until I was braking for it (I am quite good at spotting ordinary things normally), went something like "oh st she's not stopping, now braking hard, ooh never heard of a HS" Maybe I just thought it was an X1, that seems to be what MG were after with the rear.


That MG5 looks like they went for the look of every late 90's/early 00s Japanese estate and rolled them all into one ultra bland car.

So Volkswagen made a jeans beetle in 1974 , then vw South Africa produced a limited edition in 75. Mexico made them in 82 , 94 and finally in 2000.

But did Brazil make jeans buses ? Spotted this online but unsure if factory. Certainly looks nice. The bus it’s self is worthy of a post as it’s a rare bay/split ( bay front with a split rear , like a mullet lol )

Don't these catch fire as soon as you put oversize splitters on them?

I was looking at Sprite's and i came across this:



Austin Healey "Sebring Coupe". Looks like it's a one-off which is probably a good thing as while it looks pretty from afar, there are some odd styling details like how the bonnet slopes down and then comes back up again for the headlights. So from certain angles it looks like something's been dropped on it and dented the wing. I wouldn't call it an ugly car but it could've been styled a little better. Nice colour at least.

Saw one the other day, it looks like someone said "we need to make that into a convertible" instead of "we need to design a convertible version of that" I have no mechanical skill and it looks like I removed the roof and fitted the type of awning usually used for a shop front !

There were lots of variations on the slopey front.fastback includinig the factory LeMans cars, WSM, Lenham etc.

There was never a slopey front or fastback from the factory on general sale, they are all some sort of special. .
