The Opel Monza will be revived as a concept at the Frankfurt motor show, according to reports in Germany. The show car is understood to be a large coupé showcasing Vauxhall and Opel's next-generation of lightweight materials and in-car entertainment systems. 

Ferrari has been judged as the coolest automotive brand in the UK. The supercar manufacturer came top in a survey of 20,000 people, looking at 678 brands. Ferrari came top in the automotive category and third overall, behind Apple and iPhone. It's the third time the survey has been carried out, with Ferrari improving its rating by 34 per cent compared to last year.

Volvo's new XC90, which goes on sale at the end of next year, will feature new safety technologies such as pedestrian detection. The detection system, designed to spot pedestrians in darkness, is a world first from Volvo and works in combination with automatic braking. Other technologies to be fitted to the new car include barrier detection, road edge detection and adaptive cruise control - all of which are combined with a new steer assist system.

Volvo XC90 2003-2014

The Volvo XC90 is a big seven seat SUV in desperate need of modernisation, despite still having some strengths

Saw something interesting...

I saw on another site that they are planning to make this Audi A5/BMW 4-Series sized AND rear-wheel drive. That could be VERY interesting indeed...

The Monza

As a child in the late 70s or very early 80s I remember coming home from school and seeing a gold Monza coupe parked outside a private clinic in my cul-de-sac and thinking to myself - that's a great looking car! Looking forward to see the 21st century reinterpretation of that fond childhood memory - just not in gold I hope! ha ha.
