Its looks very like thats the way they are going what is it are they getting lazing with the pencil and just say OK for example the 2cv you mentioned was a good success lets try and reinvent it again and go from there and all the Kensington yuppies can buy one to carry there miniature mutts in cheers Donald

Going by these things, the new 2CV will be bigger than a Merc S class, and heavier than a bus, while more expensive than a priceless work of art...

We had a 1.8t Beetle a few years ago and I have to say it was excellent. Got lots of waves in it too

And I have to say I really like the Fiat too, but the same couldn't be said about the Mini.

I'm no fan of the Mini or the Beetle, but the 500 looks fabulous.

I hate them all. Sure the classic mini and beetle are great but these new designs are flogging a dead horse. As Az said they're the opposite of what made the originals so popular in the first place.

The new versions look like cheap lumps of plastic in my opinion. I wouldn't say no if I was given one for free but it would be on ebay within the hour...
