Re Editions, Re interpretations, Re visitations... Some interesting examples.

We recently discussed the re interpretation of the Volvo P 1800 by Cyan or the modern alpine A 110. But it seems that is a new trend. Here are some examples which are with some discussions and thoughts. The 911 DLS by Singer is one of the most famous: Wha...

The 914 was the first car I ever fell in love with...

...I even built a plastic model of it as a kid : )

The David Browne is pure delight!

it is one of the most gorgeous retromod

But the size and character is not retro. Too much of a modern muscle

It's too easy to please with old triumphs.

It's one thing to build a resto-mod from an existing car. That's just a hot rod, and companies/individuals have been building those forever. But the stuff that's new-build and vintage style feels a bit like covers of established hit songs. Eddie Van Halen... 

I dated a girl in high school who had a 914.

So much fun! I still think about her - the car, not the girl.😁

Very good indeed:))

To me all the BEV, no matter if they are young/old/hommage, are soulless vehicles.

But that Singer 911 and that Speedback... Very nice interpretations of the essence of the originals. Though the Speedback is a bit of a abberation, I really like that one. Do you have an interior shot, Nico?

Yes, that would have been better

 By: George Gently : January 29th, 2021-02:37

It is so cool in French.

Speedback Interior!

Bespoke/Customizable for each client, at "extra cost" ...  

Love that picnic seats in the trunk.

Thanks for the pics.

Great post Nico!

Actually I like em’all❣️ Also electric. It is the future! 🤷🏼‍♂️ There are a lot of nice re-releases in launch position - including the R5! 😊

I like the idea of electrified classics

such as the RBW MGB Roadster. Retailing at about 100k £ it is built from scratch with all new components, including a new body built to original specs with original tooling, while their Jaguar E-type conversions are converted in a way that always allows t...  

I wonder about the viability of restored / upgraded / reinvented gasoline power vehicles

 By: cazalea : February 15th, 2021-06:41
What about the trend at the top end of re-manufacturing classics but with electric powertrains and NO external clues to the change? An English company named Lunaz comes to my mind: they do Rolls, Bentley, Jaguar and Range Rover conversions. Here are a few...
