Slim pick­ings

Autocar - - YOUR VIEWS -

Where are all the good-look­ing new cars? There seem to be few about re­cently. In your 11 Oc­to­ber edi­tion, there is one on p41 (the Lam­borgh­ini Hu­racán Per­for­mante) and an­other on p51 (the Ford GT).

The Rolls-royce Phan­tom looks wrong from the front, as did the VII, but from other views it is okay.

BMW does not seem to have learnt from the Chris Ban­gle era. The de­signer of the X7 seems to be en­am­oured with the film Jaws. That car will scare small kids. Does the i8 not re­mind you of the rear view of some­one bent for­ward with their trousers down?

Land Rover seems to have adopted the lazy Ger­man styling model for re­cent in­tro­duc­tions. They all look pretty much the same. Need a new model? Then pump the old one up a bit or let some air out as needed. The Ve­lar looks like a sat-on Range Rover. It seems the good de­sign­ers at JLR have all moved into the Jaguar shop.
