KLIMS 2010: The Concept Cars

What I like about Motor Shows are concept cars. In fact, if a motor show is devoid of concept cars it would feel as if the event is lacking something. It feels like having fish & chips without the tartar sauce or having a hot dog without relish, and mustard. So when the Kuala Lumpur Motor Show 2010 (KLIMS) had on display a whole lot of concept cars, it felt like a proper motor show. Of course, not all look like the Lotus Esprit concept pictured above

These are the Good, the So-so and the Really Horrid.

The Good

Perodua - The Bezza, a very Toyota-esque concept car. Not surprised if it actually is a Toyota/Daihatsu with the badging changed. If it isn't, Perodua in-house design division has improved tremendously.

Toyota With the georgeous FT-HS (which could be a hybrid version of the FT86). I cannot wait for the FT86 to be launched after viewing this concept car in real life.

The So-so

Mitsubishi with the iMIEV Sport Air supermini sized car and

Mitsubishi PX MIEV SUV, both are just typical concept cars that are fully electric vehicles.

Isuzu with the D-MAX body kit concept which is a design study for D-MAX accessories.

The Really Horrid

Hyundai The iX Metro. It is a fish disguised as a car. If this is the next i10, I'm not buying it.

Toyota's cut out Standard Car For The Next Era Concept if this is the future of passenger cars, it's going to put me to sleep.

Naza's Concept Cabriolet based on the Kia Picanto Someone with a chainsaw and no imagination. Sorry for the shakey photograph. I couldn't stand looking at it a second longer.

Proton's factory staff in-house concept car competition cars While it does showcase the fabrication talents of the regular-Joe factory employees as well as how to work on a very tiny budget, the people who designed these 'cars' should not quit their day jobs as assemblers, technicians and whatever they do at Proton's plants.
