Lexus LF-Gh Hybrid Car

LF-Gh looks pretty and it functions the same as the 2011 GS 450h.

Usual frumpy looks of the GS are replaced with creases and curves that shows out poise and aggression.

Lexus has focused much on its front end by featuring a new grille and headlamp designs.

The Grille is designed by repeating the spindle design that resembles the sports fabric.

The door handles and side mirrors have been “minimized,” Lexus, says, and we don’t believe either adaptation will make it to a production vehicle.

Its dimension and driving layout make us believe that it is the next generation Lexus GS.

The LF-Gh measures 192.5 inches long by 73.6 inches wide, making it about 2.5 inches longer and almost two inches wider than today’s GS450h.

Scion FR-S

This is a naturally aspirated 2.0 liter Boxer with a flat four mated for either an automatic transmission or a six-speed manual.

FT-S rides on sharp 20 inch wheels thereby hiding an atrocious set of 18-inch carbon ceramic brake rotors that are fixed to the wheels as like a motorcycle.

Sources say that the FR-S' design is inspired by the legendary Toyota 2000GT.

2011 Morgan 3 Wheeler

The Morgan Motor Company fully revealed the Threewheeler at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

In Goodwood Festival of Speed 2011 Morgan 3 Wheeler is the most remarkable vehicle among all.

The iconic design of the Morgan Threewheeler has been updated with 21st Century technology.

The powertrain is a V Twin fuel injected engine mated to a Mazda 5 speed (and reverse) gearbox.

It is designed like a powerful missile at the front leading to a beetle back tail at the rear.

The bullet shape and the exposed bodywork and aluminium tub are accompanied by the aeroplane profile of the car’s sides.

From the design viewpoint, the focus was set on making the car as close to an aeroplane as possible, while retaining handy extra space for driver, passenger and a hold all in the rear.

A leather padded cockpit along with aircraft instrumentation adds to the sense of flying on the road.

The car is easy to control with a perfect view ahead and to the rear.

Its weight is estimated to be less than 500 kilograms (1,102 lb), the acceleration from zero to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) occurs in 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 115 miles per hour (185 km/h).
