The Tokyo Motor Show has seen a whole host of weird and wonderful concepts since it opened. While the three new SUV concept models from Mitsubishi are not really the most wacky cars that have parked up at the event, they are still a little bit out of the ordinary.
With Sony primed and ready to release the latest edition in the popular Gran Turismo video game for the Playstation 3, Mercedes-Benz has created a brand new super sports concept car to feature in the virtual driving experience.
The upcoming Tokyo Motor Show will soon see the unveiling of two new Lexus models (or a pair of Lexi as Alan Partridge might say).
One of the most anticipated events in the motoring calendar is rapidly approaching, with some of the world’s hottest new vehicles descending on Tokyo.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the event will showcase a number of new models from the Far-East’s most notable manufacturers.
I’ve just managed to snatch a glimpse of a truly elegant car, with sweeping lines that may remind some people of a certain age of the Jaguar E-type in it’s heyday. The car was originally unveiled as a concept vehicle based on the Jaguar XKR about a year ago. As with all concept vehicles, once they have been revealed to the public and reviews and comments flood back, the original idea gets diluted and stripped down until the manufacturer feels that it is right for public release.
The Lyonheart website says “..over the years, the British car industry has seen many legendary names disappear..” and one name that I think we can all be relieved to see disappear is the Growler moniker that the poor car was originally saddled with. I mean, what on earth where they thinking? I often wonder sometimes how so many cars have been christened with such awful names over the past 60 years. Well, that’s one thing stripped away from the concept car that we can all appreciate.
