Top 5 Frankfurt Motorshow 2011
The Frankfurt Motor Show 2011 was one of the most exciting Motor shows in recent years. There were someone terrific new cars launched and amazing concept vehicles on display at this years event.
Many manufacturers choose Frankfurt as a place to showcase their ‘green’ plans for the future, and low emissions / electric / hybrid vehicles were featured predominately at the show (of course there were still plenty of fast and exciting new sports cars to drool over too).
Ace car NUT and blogger Lisa (The Car Addict) was at the Frankfurt Motor Show, we asked her to put together her TOP FIVE highlights of the event for Flush the Fashion.
#1: Ford EVOS Concept
We will never see the new Ford EVOS Concept on the streets the way it looks now. The EVOS is just a concept to demonstrate Ford’s new visions for design and technology in the future. With its Gull wing doors (both front and rear) it certainly turned a few heads in Frankfurt.
It is driven by a 2.0 litre Atkinson Cycle regular petrol engine in unison with an electric motor, something that seemed to be a common theme at the motor show this year. Ford’s goal with the EVOS was to make everything customer-friendly with ‘unique, and unexpected features that surprise and delight people’.
#2: Maserati Kubang
A new member of the “High-class” SUV’s: The Maserati Kubang. Maserati have been a bit slow to catch up with the rest of the major luxury car manufacturers and tackle a 4X4 but here it is. This is the same car Maserati presented at the Detroit Motor Show in 2003. Now it is a reality.
Containing a Ferrari built engine it will be based around the framework of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It looks great but when it goes on sale it’s likely to be around the £100k mark.

The Jaguar C-X16 is a hybrid that can be driven the car at speeds of up to 50mph on electric power alone. I don't know about you but I'm not too sure about being overtaken by a milk float while in a car like this.

Designed with plastics company BASF, the brand new Smart concept car is visually stunning, but will it ever be on sale to the public.
19th August 2011
