January 27, 2009

vw_norway

This ia quite good. VW Norway are havning a competition where the participants can win a new Golf. All you have to do is to keep your slighltly moving mouse hand over the car the longest, you get a 5 mnute break every hour. They had to have a knock out round before christmas and now the final is here. As I write there is 12 players left of the 175 players who got through and it has been going for 3 days.

Do you need a new car?

October 23, 2008

Fuck Fiat

Fuck Fiat.

No, that’s not a joke. That’s a very real Brazilian company (they have four branches, and a website).

Mini Electric

October 21, 2008

In Brazil, hybrid cars are not that cool. They are just standard cars. Yes, Brazil’s “default” car option is the “total flex” (or flexible fuel): you can fill your tank with petrol, sugar cane alcohol (ethanol), or a combination of both. There are a variety of Total Flex cars from which to choose, ranging from the Vauxhall Corsa (Opel) to Mitsubishi’s Pajero TR4.

Natural gas is also a popular option – with R$15,30 (approx.  £4.20) you can fill a small tank and run up to 100km with your car. Brazil’s electricity is comparatively clean (84% is hydroelectric), which means (in my opinion) that Brazil can be considered a world leader in the fight against global warming! Oh yeah!

But I’m not here to talk about Brazil. I’m here to talk about the new Electric Mini I just saw on Wired:

Electric Mini

BMW will produce approximately 500 of these very-very-very-very-very cute electric Mini Coopers – for select private and corporate customers only…….. (that’s so unfair!) It’s the first electric car I see that don’t look like a toy:

Ogilvy’s latest for Ford

September 23, 2008

Noah Harris’ latest video for ford with Ogilvy and BlinkInk, Brand republic has a full article here, basically it says that it is targeted at women and aiming to establish itself as a style icon, maybe they should have thought about that when they designed the car as-well? I mean the new Fiat 500 is a potential style icon, the new Ford Fiesta is in my eyes pretty bland, and the micro-site is shocking, nice TV ad non the less.

BMW Used Cars

August 29, 2008

Ok. It isn’t animation, motion graphic, 3D, flash, or even digital. But this advert created by BBDO Athens for BMW Used Cars is simply genious:

Because you know you’re not the first.

New Porsche Site

August 18, 2008

The company I’m working for at the moment (BB-K.com) here in Germany just recently launched the new Porsche website. It’s not a completely new site but more of a facelift, with extras. The site has coprporate designs style but also very clean, and I really like the interface of the main menu. You can actually browse all the models and find the car you like without clicking once. I also reccomend you check out the ‘build your own porsche’ section in 3D. Very nice but you need Shockwave installed.
