Cool Cars

2007 Volvo C30 plan view

I work as a designer in the automotive industry, so I am always up to date on cars.  A few over the past years have really excited me and they are listed here.  In fact this would be my short list if I were looking to purchase now.  (Images from

The C30 is a fancy little car!  I love how on the 2007 model you can pick your color for the rocker panel.  My favorite color combo is the Cosmic White with java color rocker.

2008 Ford Fiesta 3 door (not available in US)

The 5 door is available in the US and is cute, but I really like the 3 door.  As well, I like the interior design and colors offered for the European market better then what is offered for the US.  I don't know why automakers think Americans wouldn't like what was designed for Europe.

2009 Alfa Romeo MiTo (not available in US)

 Not available for purchase in the US.  But my husband and I go to Italy every year to visit his mother.  Whenever I see this car in Europe I always think it is cute.

2011 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

Really stunning new vehicle.  The rear window is very tiny, hard to see out of...but nevermind things like visibility I want it!!!
