    British Motor Show 2006

    Hey peeps!

    I have heard that there are going to be 6 global premieres at this years British (London) Motor Show at excel. One of which is the New Vauxhall Corsa.

    I have heard a few rumours that the new BMW M3 3/5 door is also going to be launched aswell as the Range Rover Stormer.

    Just wondered if any of you know of anything different or know exactly what the other 5 are that are being launched.

    Adios

    Isn't that the Sport?
    I know the concept was a coupe though, are they still making a coupe? There is nothing more stupid than a 2-door SUV.

    I wouldn't say that. The original Chevrolet Blazer, the Ford Bronco, the Dodge Ramcharger (and its little known twin, the Plymouth Trail Duster), and several others were all 2-doors, and they did pretty well. Although, on the other hand, none of them are still around, so maybe you have a point .

    Ramcharger...lmao

    I don't see the badness in a 2 door SUV. Shorter Wheel Base = Better off-roading capabilities.

    and apparently BMW are going to have a 1.5 million display of cars at the entrance to the show.

    So who's going? I'm gonna be there on Monday 24th July with my dad and best mate. Is the new Mini really being debuted there? Looking forward to seeing that and the new Corsa. As well as my favourites, the TVRs.
