In 1953 at the Paris Salon, Ferrari unveiled their first attempt in building a series production Grand Touring car. The new model called 250 Europa was offered in two versions of the model: the first 20 units were simply called 250 Europe, while the other 44 were being called 250 GT Europa. The difference between the two version was firstly made by the wheelbase: 2800mm for Europa and 2600mm for Europa GT; and secondly by the engine: first one was using a 3-liter Lampredi V12 engine and the second one a 3-liter Colombo V12 engine

Mazda 2: The Mazda2 has convincingly taken out the sub-$20,000 small car category - and with good reason. Its combination of enjoyable and competent driving dynamics with a generous features list, good looks and a practical interior made it a winner in a competitive category. Class leading safety also didn't go unnoticed by the DCOTY judges. The 2 is unchanged for 2009 but remains a solid all round package

BMW’s sales and marketing man Ian Robertson was characteristically upbeat yesterday at the annual BMW press dinner (at Claridge’s in London; good opportunity to catch up with a few people). He talks a good game. BMW reacted early to the downturn, he says, by cutting production and that has left it in good shape for the downturn. And it’s doing well in the places that are growing, especially China and India.
I got the chance to ask him about the Russia market after dinner. He reckons there could be a sharp rebound and that he’s hearing optimism that it could come back pretty quickly when things start to improve next year.
It’s a tough place for all this year though, and the latest market data gave little cause for cheer for anyone. Mind you, BMW brand sales are only down 16% at 13,200 units in the first ten months - in an overall car market down 51%.
Another talking point on the night was BMW’s sponsorship of the London 2012 Olympics. There was much speculation on which other OEMs would have seriously bid for that ‘Tier One Automotive Partner’ position and also who might have been most crestfallen not to have been successful. One or two might have thought that the idea of a fleet of hybrids moving athletes around would have been a winner…
