The Splendid Auto Monthly travel team sure are kind. I have a Virgin Atlantic buisiness class ticket, and access to the first class lounge at Heathrow. A perfect place to spend some time going over what I’ve been emailed regarding a certain Los Angelese auto show…
#Crossover or #Wagon reads the email title. What? Conte seem to be trying to blend the boundaries between a type of car that already blends boundaries. Who knows. Apparently it’s going to be the king of the road. I’ll be holding them to account on that claim.
‘Scagliati will be here’. ‘Zenshi will be sending a car to the show. More information soon’. _‘Something something Zavir something something’. Are you lot having a laugh? What is the point of teasing anything if the teaser is “we’re going to be here”. I thought the ‘car outline on black background’ trend was bad, but this takes the biscuit. Come on, please.
There’s going to be a new Miller Argonaught. Great.
Joy of joys! AL Autos will be at the show. Rumours are suggesting that they’re cutting their usual cartel of 40 different vehicles that they bring to a show down to just 33!
Ganter will be there, with some blotchy, overly contrasting teaser of a car that “In 2019, … will get an autopilot”. As oppose to two autopilots? Or a handful of autopilots?
#GETREADY, #GETREADY, #GETREADY. YES OKAY ERIN WE GET IT YOU’RE LAUNCHING A NEW RACE CAR CALM DOWN IT’S NOT THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS.
Maine have reawakened the devil apparently, and it looks like some kind of sports car. More to follow.
Scagliati clarified their previous statement with an outline of a car and a hashtag and an invite and detailed description of what to expect and…
…you get the picture, they’re releasing a new car.
Zenshi’s art department soon followed suit with a “look at me I can use the ‘pastel painting effect’ tool” style teaser, which appears to be showing off two cars. And of course, they’re both in Ramune Blue Mica.
Conte also added (I think?) to their previous ad with a teaser of a new hot-hatch kinda thing. Looks decent, and has a spoiler. Nice.
A mixed bag then on the teaser front. Time to go get on my plane, and with any luck, by the time I’ve landed there’ll be a few more decent hints at what we’re going to see at the show. Gavin out.
