Yellowwheels – Live at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show B

the Show’s kicked off we’re at the BMW stand where the Vision Concept stars as glitzy intro to BMW’s hybrid platform. It’s impressive enough as a static display, but wait, all the cars except the Vision are moving off and doing a full lap of Hall 11! It’s slightly reminicent of FIAT’s factory roof test […]

It’s impressive enough as a static display, but wait, all the cars except the Vision are moving off and doing a full lap of Hall 11! It’s slightly reminicent of FIAT’s factory roof test track.

Mini have the Roadster version of the Coupe Concept on their stand. Looks a strong contender for production.

Across the Hall from Mini, Rolls Royce revealed their new Ghost. It left us a bit cold in muted sober colours, and then walking between Halls, we spotted a white one. In daylight it suddenly had greater presence. We couldn’t help noticing Rowan Atkinson asking Rolls top brass a ton of questions: I wonder what colour Mr Bean would order?

Yellowwheels is live at the 2009 IAA Frankfurt Auto Show. It may be bucketing down in Frankfurt tonight, but our spirits are up; heck you don’t even need to go to the show to spot some fab machinery. Just across the road from our hotel, Aston Martin have lined up a party, and outside there’s a gaggle of classy cars to advertise the fact.

And to top that, across the road on the pavement there’s a very rare Zagato DB7 special (and behind it a DB8 and a Ferrari 456. Also spotted several more Ferraris, including California, 599’s, and Rolls-Royce’s Phantom Drophead Coupé ) !

Our show coverage starts tomorrow. But we are NOT going to bore you with every new model. In fact it won’t be that extensive, but we’ll be cruising the many halls to bring you the stuff that we find stimulating and exciting. So come back regularly to see our take on the show.
