There's only one model in the lineup for now, the Alvito. The panel gap for the hood isn't a perspective mistake, it's just an odd design quirk. If i could have gone back and done the design over, i would have changed that, but oh well:<p><IMG SRC="http://img149.exs.cx/img149/4808/aviolialvitofront7cd.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><B>All-new Alvito: the beginning of a new era for Avioli</B><p>4 March 2004  ALVITO, ITALY - Avioli today released details of its all-new MkIV Alvito executive saloon, which ushers in a new era of quality and design for Avioli. It will also be the first Avioli to be available in North America since the Alvito II of 1988.<p>Based on Montgomery AGs upcoming Shannon Series 4, the Alvito features a McPherson strut front and a multilink rear suspension. The Alvito is also the best-quality Avioli yet, with an interior benchmarked against the Audi A4.<p>The Alvitos engine range includes 2.0-litre, 3.0-litre, 3.0-litre diesel, and 3.0-litre, 336 bhp GT models. There are many high-tech features in the Alvito, including:<br>-Adaptive headlamps that illuminate corners<br>-Direct-injection powerplants<br>-Aluminum-steel hybrid chassis<p>The Alvito will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on 4 March, with European and American sales following later in the year.<p><B>2004 Sales <br>Old Alvito: 13,635<br>New Alvito: 49,890</B><br><BR><BR>

Nice! Reminds BMW a little which isn't a bad thing!

Nice! Looks like a cool alternative to the 3-series... I especially like the idea of the 336hp... like a 4-door M3! <p>I personally find the Shannon style a little classier, though... the Alvito has a bit of a Mazda3 look to it. A great looking car nonetheless... and as usual a great drawing.

You should really put in some heavier shading, it looks too light for me. Not enough contrast, otherwise it looks great <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I like it. It looks subtle, yet sexy. I really like this design. Stick with the theme, and you've got a winner.

i used the same pencils i've been using; i just scanned this drawing at a lower resolution this time on accident (300 dpi vs. 600 dpi on my other drawings), i tried scanning it at a higher resolution but it crashed my dad's computer, which is on its last legs (i've asked for my own scanner for my b-day; my computer's infinitely better than his <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bangin.gif" BORDER="0"> )

love the italianess of the front design alot, the rear has more than a bit of BMW 3series to it, especially that kink. I always love the subtle look of your sketches.<p>At least your lins on this sketch are clean, I always have problems trying to scan my sketches, as they always come out very untidy. Thats in contrast to how they are in reality. Probaly I just need to keep working on my scanner settings to get the best out of my scans.
