Fireball’s Cool Designs of the Week!

What is going on in this world? Ideas are merging, blending, taking shape, radically departing but staying the same. And that’s our world. Change.

Many people fear change. Maybe because it’s unknown. The question is, “What if you DID know the answer?” To everything? Would life be the same? Would you even be interested? Change is good. It keeps us on our toes, makes life adventurous, and forces us to have faith in things unseen.

Fortunately for you, you get to SEE this week’s designs. Some are wicked cool, some way not. But change is in the air, therefore, this week’s theme. Entitled?

CHANGE!…… DANGIT!

1. THE AUDI E- TRON ELECTRIC

Audi_E_tron_R8

Remember the Audi in “IRobot?” How could you not? It was in every DANG scene of the movie. Along with Will Smith’s beefy bod. (I had enough of that after the first scene… whatever) Well, Audi has taken their R8 and made it sweeter. Electric. And… Red. And red is good. Electric? Yea, that’s cool, but RED is cooler. Just think of RED things. Cherries. Megan Fox’s Lips. A stubbed toe. Ok,… maybe not the last one. But red is cool, dangit. (Check out the AutoDissection on the R8 here.)

2. THE BUGATTI GALIBIER

BugattiGalibier

I don’t know what Galibier means, but I’m pretty sure it means BADASS in Swiss. Or French for Ho, Ho, Ho. This AlumiChrome cladded beasty is just plain sick lookin’ and all elegant at the same time. Has Bugatti changed? Yes. For the better? Yes. Do you want to take Megan Fox for a ride in this hammerfisted royal machine? Um… that would be a yes…. dangit.

3. THE CITROEN REVOLTE INTERIOR

CitroenRevolte

WHAT!! WHAT!!!!!!! Ok. Let me go meditate on this for a while. I’ll be back…

Ok, I’m back. WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If this interior didn’t scream “look at me” any louder, I’d eat my hat. With mustard. …. One word, change it so that we can actually drive it. And what is THAT? A Star Trek Baby Seat??? Ok,l I want this car for my next film. It takes place in the 25th Century. Tentatively called ‘Duck Dodgers.”

4. VOLKSWAGEN THINGAMADOODLEHICKY

Volkswagen

IS there something wrong with this car? Is it me? Is the picture distorted? Do I have poo on my shoe? These are just some of the things I contemplate when I look at this Vdub. Change. Change is good. Respect design, no matter what. And always,… respect the poo.

5. THE REVA ELECTRIC

REVA NXG Electric

I don’t know. Is this car cool? Ya think? I mean, electrics are supposed to be ugly. What’s up with that? Is this little beasty a tuner wannabe? Would you take it and slam the crap out of it? Carve it in the canyons? One thing is for sure, dangit, it’s so green that it’s turned my hair green.

6. THE GHOSTRIDER

SR_GhostRider

This comes in today from a buddy at The Hub Garage. Check him out here. He’s an excellent designer with a lot of great ideas. Some are so over the top that they do belong in movies, but it’s not really the look of these cars that makes them unique. It’s vision. Vision is what changes the world. Visions of what you can’t see, manifested. We all say that ideas come from your noggen, but that’s not really true, is it? Visions come from the ether. In constant change and flux, promoting growth.

SpaceGarage’s cars promote growth. They get you to think what the world might be like through HIS eyes. Ah, change. It’s a good thing.

7. MERCEDES BENZ SLS AMG

MercedesBenz-SLS-AMG

Red. Cool.

8. TOYOTA IQ

Toyota_iq

Duh. ‘Bout frikkin’ time. What dumbass waited so long to bring a cool microcar here. Probably the same DUMBASS that gave us the Smart. Was that a pun? I mean, I put Smart and Dumbass in the same sentence! Is that a cool thing? It’s like in Back to the Future, the town was called Hill Valley. Howabout InsideOut, UpsideDown, Over and Above.                      Ok. I think I’ve lost track.

Where am I?

9. THE VDUB ARMS DEALER/ ESCAPE FROM LA

Escape from LAArms Dealer

And my anti for this week? Something VERY serious. A vision of change. A RADICAL departure from the norm. This UNBELIEVABLE vision was done back in 1995 for the film Escape From LA. It was SO visionary, it didn’t even make into the film! THEY WE’RE FREAKED OUT OVER HOW AWESOME IT WAS!!!!! I mean, you take an old Harley, ass-connect it to a Bug, and fill it full of goodies.

Ok, maybe I’m kidding myself, but I’d drive it. Pull into a Baby’s R’ Us and pick up a load of Pampies? Done. Back into Starbucks and load up the Chocolate Madelienes? Done.

Change. Don’t fear it. Go with it, then watch how the answers come. And yes… I’m done.
