Lima gives Kia a free kick

// Posted in Kia

Kia Motors America has signed up Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima to convert US football fans to futbol fans during the FIFA World Cup. Any excuse, we suppose.

Super Bowl XLVIII ad watch

In case you’ve missed it there’s a big game of football on tonight. And we don’t mean the Man City v Chelsea game either. It’s American football and, of course, it’s the Super Bowl. That means all the big wig advertising agencies have been locked away in rooms for months trying to come up with […]

The 2012 Paris Motor Show is well underway and for those of us who can’t make it we’ve assembled a photo gallery, which highlights what a blue collar show this has turned out to be. There’s no real theme of haute coutoure motoring here. It’s mostly off the rack bread and butter models. Thankfully, the […]

New vehicle sales report – June 2012

That’s a staggering increase of 16,409 sales compared to June 2011. Year-to-date sales total 547,854 vehicles and you’d suggest that means Australia will once again top one […]
