Now Dasher! Now Datsun, now Peugeot and Vauxhall! On Comet! On Cooper! On Kia and Bristol!
Thanks, CAR magazine
, for providing a bit of levity and some smiles despite a dreary economy, layoffs, and plant closures galore.CAR
tapped automakers' design studios to create interpretations of what "Father Christmas" would drive on the night before Christmas. Bentley, Ford, Rolls, and Nissan obliged, turning out some pretty fantastic (and phantasmagorical) designs.
Head over to CAR
, peruse, and vote for your favorite. The oh-so-British Bentley is tempting if a bit blinged-out with its Continental GT
headlights, but I found the Rolls' wintry scene the most magical and serene. Ford's design looks ready for orbit, and Nissan's GT-R
-inspired entry looks ready for a Mars landing. You never know, perhaps there's a Who-Ville in another solar system that relies on yearly North Pole deliveries...--Colin Mathews
