I've had de honor to represent Abduzeedo in a trip sponsored by Ford to Buenos Aires, to visit the city and the 6th International Motor Show, an event that happens from 20th to 30th of July in the Argentinian capital.
The event is really amazing. I've had the opportunity to closely see some cars that are the consumer dream of any automobile lover, and I also got to know Ford's new releases at the fair, cars that got innovative design and technology.
Since our main focus is design, I won't get into technical information per say... so here are some of the cars presented at the Ford booth, the Ford Design Hall.
The EcoSport has got a pretty slick design, fluid and dynamic.
This one is simply absurd. Look at the size of this monster!
Great interior space!
Ford GT Tungsten Silver
The Ford GT seems to be very retro, but it has got a amazing body and design.
Mustang Shelby GT500
This one is my personal favorite.
Internal view. Sooo comfortable
A great interior for a great car!
It's time to show the releases!
The cars had a cover. The expectations were high!
The Evos looked like it was going to fly away. What a great concept car... everyone was just drooling over it.
This side panel is just amazing. It's a touch screen that supposedly shows informations about the car. That's heavy, doc.
As you can see, all Ford cars have got absolutely stunning designs. They sure took their time doing these. And you can imagine the pain of getting inside some of these and not being able to take any of them home! lol
Besides the brand new ones, there were also some treats for old car fans, like these Hot Rods! Super machines indeed!
Obviously there were more companies exposing their cars, so here are some of them rocking some great architecture and design.
There was also some Ducatti motorcycles, like this stunning black one.
Super old, yet preserved Jaguar. So much style!
Toyota Fun-Vii, a concept car with a screen on the outside. Probably great for advertising. It could easily be a taxi in a Blade Runner-like future.
This is the Toyota NS4 Concept. Furious design, man!
Besides the cars at the show, I had the chance to get to know a little bit of Buenos Aires and by far the thing that caught the most of my attention was the architecture of the city. Of course this is a car design post, but the trip was so good with so many things to see that I just have to share some of the pics I've taken there. These are not professional pics, and most of them was taken from inside a bus, but I guess you can get an overall idea of how beautiful Buenos Aires is.
And the biggest surprise of the whole trip was a visit to The Beatles Museum (The Cavern), a collection of thousands (seriously, thousands) of original items that belonged to the Beatles. Any fan will sure love to visit this spot!
I'm really thankful to Ford for his unforgettable opportunity given to Abduzeedo! Thank you, guys! Cheers. ;)
