I like these cars with angles :D And as it was started few years before the DeLorean I doubt that they copied...

L'avantage, c'est que la reproduction en origami (carton plié!) est ultra-simple à réaliser... :lol:

Si tu en veux d'autres, un lien utile:
http://grumlt.citrina.lt/CitroPasakos/CitroZaislai.html . Bon, c'est en Polonais, mais pas de problèmes pour suivre les modèles. C'est un fan de Citroën anciennes. Je sais pas, par contre, s'il y a des Multipla...

J'aimais bien http://www1.plala.or.jp/HISA/hoby/paper/hoby5_free.htm (où j'ai trouvé la XM) parce que ce sont des fichiers PDF au lieu de JPEG : la qualité est bien meilleure, ça reste net quand on imprime, même en grand.

Aussi bizarre que ça paraisse, j'aime bien la Multipla façon grenouille écrasée par une boîte à chaussures. Mais la Multipla première du nom... Sympa comme tout, cette puce à roulettes!

I actually really like the look of this, I know that most people find it too weird and probably think looks like something out of a bad sci-fi movie, but that's why I love it. No other car looks quite like it, I love that enormous bonnet, this car reminds me of the 6000 SUX from Robocop (I know that may sound like a bad thing), it looks like it should have a jet engine coming out of the boot. This is definetely a car I would hunt down if I was rich and could have a car collection, I know the early models had really bad electrical problems with the 70s then-space-age LED instrument panels and touch buttons, so now they probably wouldn't work at all, but I would still want the first model, not the later one where it was softened up a bit and the flip-up headlights had been disposed. I would just love to drive down the steets in something like this (I'd be playing the John Williams Robocop theme tune on the stereo), everyone has their favourites that make them look crazy, Explorer4x4 has the Tempo, I have this.

..It is completely different from anything else.! (...and I guess some computer whizz nowadays ..could fit some pentium+++ for a couple of hundred quid ..much better than the Atari 64 ..or Spectrum 48 ..that was fitted in it originally.!! :D )

I've never thought of the AM Lagonda as ugly. I think it's a wonderful oddball, and would love to have one.

The Lagonda certainly is a love it/hate it type of car. I may be in the minority but I love it. At the time of its introduction it looked like nothing else on the road and even today it will not be confused with anything else. And it most definitely did not have a Jaguar engine, it had a hand built Aston Martin V8.

First, as mentioned here, the Aston Martin Lagonda is certainly not a ripoff of the De Lorean, since the Lagonda was produced from 1976 onwards, and the Delorean is a car of the early eighties. I am divided about it's style, though. It is sureley ugly if you compare it with cars like the E-Type or the DS, but it looks great compared to actual cars. Of course, it is unfair to compare it with the beautiful cars of the 1960s and the times before, but think of it's time: the quality of car-design was already decreasing in the seventies (although there are still a lot of beauties in the early seventies and still some fine examples in the later seventies), and the Lagonda was one of the survivors of individualistic design in the eighties. To be fair, the Aston Martin Lagonda isn't beautiful as the earlier models were, but it is certainly avangardistic and very individualistic. (The same could be said for the NSU Ro 80 and even some earlier cars). The design of the Multipla, etc. is just poor, the design of the Lagonda is at least daring.

That's a Fiat Multipla.
Anyway, the Aston's wonderfully interesting and beautiful in its own way.

The worst looking Aston ever is this one i think : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aston_Martin_V8_Zagato .
The only ugly Aston i can think of , i always liked the Lagonda , and always thoght it looked cool , and it was a 4 door as well, Astons only 4 door saloon until the Rapide arrived .
