2011 DETOMASO DEAUVILLE CONCEPT
The Deauville concept (previously known by its SLC and later SLS codenames), a production ready revives the name De Tomaso placed on its 1970?s attempt at a luxury sedan; sadly, instead of an attractive Ghia saloon, this time around the Italian marque decided to emulate BMW’s GT and create a Pininfarina-penned crossover.
In interior including the plush, handcrafted interior is bathed in leather, Alcantara, and carbon fiber. Once known for cars like the Pantera and Mangusta, it appears that all originality and verve have been sucked from the brand in an attempt to go Teutonic with this humpbacked tourer.
2011 DeTomaso Deauville Concept is four-door sport luxury sedan 4WD, which will reportedly be available with a turbocharged V6 (300 horsepower), a diesel V6 (250 horsepower) or a V8 (550 horsepower), all imported from “Detroit’s Powertrain Integration”.
2011 WIESMANN SPYDER CONCEPT
It is powerful, ultra-light and purist, the Wiesmann Spyder Concept is the essence of Wiesmann’s philosophy. Wiesmann showcased the design study of a two-seater, extremely purist, convertible sports car at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. The two-seater has no doors or windscreen and is the most extreme Wiesmann ever built.
With a kerb weight of less than 1000 kg, it accelerates from 0-100 km/h less than 4 s and makes a top speed of approx. 290 km/h. Basis for this excellent performance is a 420-hp V8 high speed motor which is powered by a 4 liters of engine capacity.
The Wiesmann Spyder design study is based on the Wiesmann brothers’ early designs, though it also incorporates their many years of experience in sports car construction. It demonstrates the sports car manufacturer’s receptiveness to trends because many Wiesmann fans have approached the company founders in recent years with requests for an extremely purist model.
