Ducati… and AMG? Yup. This unholy marriage of the performance-obsessed has resulted in this: the Ducati Diavel AMG Special Edition ($TBA). As you might expect, it scores high marks in both the aesthetic and speed departments, offering up signature AMG five-spoke wheels, carbon fiber radiator grills with aluminum trim, an AMG-style sport exhaust system, an AMG-style horizontally-ribbed seat in Alcantara, hand-set cam timing with the name of the technician engraved on the engine casing, a numbered plaque on the fuel tank, a Testastretta 11° engine, and spectacular matte black carbon fiber bodywork.

Sometimes concept cars are simply production model previews. The Ford Evos Concept ($TBA) is not one of them. This four-door, four-seat fastback operates on a lithium-ion plug-in hybrid powertrain, and apart from the strikingly sexy body and gullwing-style front and rear doors makes technology the focus, with features like a heart-rate monitoring seat, allergy-free interior, and the ability to communicate with the cloud and other wireless devices such as your cell phone, letting it perform crazy-future tasks like automatically playing the same music that you were just streaming at your house, heat or cool the interior to an ideal temperature before you get in the car by predicting when you’re going to leave based on your calendar, automatically close the garage door and turn off lights as you pull out of the driveway, and tons of other Jetsons-ish tasks that are bound to make us even lazier.

Ruben Vela designer of the DB One Concept and a recent addition to the Aston Martin design team in 2007. He has transformed the classic, sleek, sexy, luxury car and made the designs of the past look like antiques. Not that the Aston Martin wasn’t good enough before but the new found dynamism is worth looking at. Ruben Vela is a Spanish designer who has just finished his Masters Degree in Automotive Design in 2006 from Polytechnic University in Valencia. Based on these designs, I would assume he was amongst the top of his class.

The DB-ONE Concept he designed is widely based on the concept of dynamic lines and smooth curves. The front grille is larger in comparison to the other Aston models and looks quite prominent. The narrow slit headlights define the shape amazingly well.

It is sex on wheels, what I would give to even wash this car. 🙂
