Vol. 3 No. 20

The Frankfurt Auto Show, September 13-23, 2007

In Frankfurt, Germany, the 62nd International (IAA) Motor Show, so of course I didn’t get to go, but maybe one day…

The Frankfurt Auto Show last month is one of the premier auto shows on the planet, and I wasn’t there, but I read a whole lot about the contrasting display of power performance vehicles and “green” vehicle introductions, niche concept vehicle previews, and, in short, everything you’d ever want if you were a car fanatic.

I know BMW introduced their concept X6, Ford introduced their Verve concept, and Lamborghini even premiered their new model, called “The Reventon” that sells for 1 million Euros…that’s Euro’s folks, as in $1.4M American…

Regardless of all that, the real reason I would have given my last frequent flyer mile to have been there was to see the new production Jaguar up close and personal, the Jaguar XF (the vehicle that is replacing S Type, but from what I hear, is light years ahead of the S in styling, performance and luxury). It won’t be on sale here in the States until next spring, so I guess I’ll have to be satisfied with a picture or two until then….
