>> Something for everyone at the Frankfurt Motor Show starting with the category of sheer audacity. There a shootout between Audi's e-Tron and BMW's vision concept which isn't based on anything. Both are examples of very different thinking about power trains by each company and in the form of a lustible [assumed spelling] car. Now down here in the real world you had the Mercedes SLS AMG or the Audi R8 Spyder to pick from, lofty cars but real. Lexus had the LF-CH a perhaps oxymoronic exercise in that it's a compact premium car. If you need a Sedan but don't like to admit it, you could have picked the BMW Five-series GT which is a Sedan acting like a Hatchback acting like a Coupe, acting like a Crossover; or the Aston Martin Rapide which is a sedan acting like a stretched DB9 coupe. Finally, for super lean driving, you could choose a plug-in Prius that Toyota envisions, even though several companies have been building them for a couple of years, or the VW L1 with its tandem seating and 170 miles per gallon. Frankfurt's the largest show in the world, so it's no surprise that even in a slumpy economy there were plenty of cars to turn your head or at least make you shake it.
