My First Auto Show in Brussels, Belgium

Invited for the first time at a car show, I am very excited to discover the innovations of the 93rd Salon Auto / Moto / Van which is held in Brussels until 25 January. First time for me! 

I like cars, but I’m far from an expert. Let’s say I am more interested in aesthetics, design, comfort and ease to drive (I like to shift gears manually) than engine power as such.

Only if I find a car beautiful or interesting, I’d discover more, like this superb Jaguar on the picture above. Then I will be curious about the fuel consumption, environmental impact and performance / price ratio.

Sexy 4X4

I’ve always had a big crush on the British brands that greatly mix classy timeless design and technical performance. And when I think of a 4×4, the first name that comes to mind is Range Rover!

Photos 2 & 3 : the Range Rover Evoque ”British Edition”. The Range Rover Evoque perfectly reflects the spirit of the moment. Besides, it received 161 international awards since its launch in 2011.

The other great 4X4 brand that comes to my mind is Jeep. And the new Jeep Renagade in canary yellow version is awesome (photo 4)! Having not drived any of these cars, I will not talk about driving.

MINI City trips

Wow the Mini! WHO doesn’t like the Mini? I’ve already been a big fan of the old Mini and remains a big fan of the new MINI! It’s a very stylish car. And with the new versions, the ultimate chic little car has a powerful engine too!!

I didn’t know at all the Korean brand SsangYong (now Mahindra & Mahindra since 2011). Regarding the design, what a nice surprise with this XIV-Air concept car that looks like a manga, very cubic. The rear lights seem to be a half-open mouth. Funny!

Vintage baby!

I do love old cars! They are so classy! On the photo above, the iconic Citroën DS! Symbol of French movies of the sixties-seventies, with Alain Delon, Jean-Pierre Melville, Fantomas … 

Among my favorites, there are the old Mercedes coupes and the Volvo on the photo below.

I am neither Rihanna nor a Hollywood star, but I’m fond of this gorgeous Alpha Romeo with the sweet name of Mito (above photo)! LOL! 

As for the new BMW 6 Series (photo below), I have to admit, this car in white is WOW! Although I much more prefer the Z8 Roadster of James (Bond)… and the last Z4!

As a good globetrotter, I had the opportunity to drive a Smart car on winding narrow roads of a small island years ago. Super convenient! I was able to put my body board, dive bag and an extra friend !!!!

A curvaceous design for the new Smart Forfour for four persons, with an interior reminiscent of the Courrèges 60s models!

Another small car I find really charming, the Opel Adam to customize according to his desires (photo below). Modern design, very fresh and young! Like the Toyota Aygo.

To be very honest, I like more the composition of my photos on this Mazda CX-5 than the car itself. It’s certainly a great 4X4, with headlights reminding me the profile of a shark …
