The Company’s historic cooperation with Snaidero has generated the new Idea 40 kitchen. For Calligaris, Pininfarina has designed the new Alyon modular divan. The Prima bathroom line is the result of a new cooperation agreement with BluForm. And there had to be some reference to the world of cars: in fact the Riva 1920



Toyota Camry SE V6 2012

2012-toyota-camry-se But it’s not just healthy competition that’s enfeebled the Camry, it’s that the Camry itself has grown old and tired. Despite Toyota’s claims that the 2012 model is “all-new,” it’s not so easy to spot what’s different between last year’s Camry and this one, at least from the outside. The styling of the newer car adheres closely enough to both the spirit and letter of its predecessor that this 2012 not only looks like the 2011, they have virtually identical measurements.

Sure, there are a few tighter creases on the 2012, particularly in the fascias, but that’s the sort of change that merely betrays Toyota’s adherence to the auto industry’s philosophy of planned obsolescence. That said, it’s not even a particularly good implementation of said concept, as the seventh-generation Camry isn’t appreciably more modern in style than the sixth – or fifth, for that matter. Worse than the side-step

2013 Acura ILX

2013-Acura-ILX Walking around the new 2013 Acura ILX, there’s little to tip off the casual observer that this car shares its platform with the Honda Civic. This is a very good thing, as nobody who’s shopping the entry-level premium segment wants their vehicle to look like a mainstream compact. By now, you’ve surely developed an opinion on the sharp creases and bold look of modern Acura products, so we’re not going to dwell on its beak-like fascia other than to say it’s been downsized on the ILX and that it mostly blends in with its overall design ethos.

We wouldn’t expect the face of the ILX to deter many buyers if they are happy with what the rest of the car offers, which is not something we could say of some recent Acura designs. A look at the ILX in profile tells you that Acura isn’t backing all the way



2012 Infiniti EX35

2012-Infinti-EX35 We can hardly be blamed for mistaking the EX35 as another member of the faceless CUV horde. From the outside looking in, the five-door presents itself as the awkward duckling of the Infiniti flock. Up front, the EX greets onlookers with a familiar face lifted from the likes of the G37 line. The company’s rounded, chrome-plated grille and wraparound projector headlights help identify the model as a member of the family, but step to the crossover’s side and the story shifts dramatically.

In profile, the EX35 looks both small and somewhat strangely proportioned. With a rear hatch that leans far forward, a C-pillar defined by a sharp upkick and a tallish greenhouse offset by a long nose, the design seems caught somewhere between a baby beluga and a crosstrainer. Pronounced haunches out back hint to the rear-wheel-drive goodness lurking undernearth the rounded wrapper, and the stylish 19-inch split-spoke wheels



2013 Mercedes-Benz SL550

2013-Mercedes-Benz-SL550 Before we delve into what makes this $106,375 convertible tick, we can’t avoid the elephant in the garage: styling. The SL’s nose is fussy, with a pair of eagle-eye bi-xenon cornering headlamps and a massive upright grille giving way to the obligatory long hood. We can’t quite put our finger on it, but there’s something aesthetically uncomfortable about the front end’s proportions and multiplicity of lines. The schnoz looks particularly awkward when viewed in profile, as the grille and front fascia stand uncomfortably proud of the swept-back headlamps.

We’re inclined to blame toughening pedestrian crash test standards for all of this, but somehow, other automakers have done a better job. The rest of the bodyside is less controversial, with the SL’s patented long of hood, long of door aesthetic dominated by a U-shaped character line that originates in the front fender’s heat extractors. The taillamps look a bit oversized



Ford Taurus SHO 2013

Ford-Taurus-2013-Front-Side Ford-Taurus-SHO-2013-Rear-Side Chief among those changes is an all-new front end. Designers have bolted on a new hood, complete with a reworked fascia and scowling headlights to match. A massive single-inlet grille replaces the old design to give the SHO a somewhat sportier countenance. With a black mesh background and chrome framing, the grille drops all the way down into the lower fascia to mingle with a set of LED fog lights. The look is fresh and helps set the SHO even farther apart from its more pedestrian siblings.

Slip to the sedan’s side, and it’s easy to spot the SHO-specific black side-view mirrors and subtle badging laid into the front fenders. Designers have bolted on a new hood, complete with a reworked fascia and scowling headlights to match. Ford has also rolled out a new 20-inch wheel design, and while the geometric spokes certainly won’t be for everyone, we



Aston Martin Virage 2012

  Best Exterior The Aston Martin Virage 2012 is developed on the same aluminum VH architecture that was used for the DB9 and the Rapide sedan.This VH architecture follows aerospace concepts where weight reduction is the ultimate goal. Aston Martin Virage 2012 will be further distinguished by a new aluminum metal front grille with 5 horizontal vanes, inspired by the One-77, a new front bumper, distinctive front wings with 6 LEDs, single bi-xenon headlamps, and a rear diffuser which houses a body-colored blade accentuating the width of the car.

Rain-soaked and touched in Tungsten Silver, the Aston Martin Virage 2012  showcased as if it had been plucked from a shark tank.   Incredible Interior Aston Martin Virage 2012 is offering special interior, a combination of 7 of the finest Bridge of Weir leather used down either side of the fascia and along the seat and signature swan wing doors.
