It hints at the Series 3 sports car that will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.<p>The 3C is powered by a 336bhp, 3.0-litre turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine from Avioli. Some notable features that will see production are a folding hardtop and a popout navigation screen. <p>There are several features that are unique to the concept, however:<br>-Lower fascia<br>-Front turn signal design<br>-Taillight design<br>-Headrest design<p><B>The design of the front turn signal (in the upper corner of the headlamps) isn't the design i meant to do (it's supposed to be more like the Series 4; go to the "Shannon lineup" thread to see what I'm talking about); i did that design absent-mindedly and only caught it after i colored and scanned it. So the final Series 3 will have a subtly different headlight design. I know most of you don't care, but i had to get that out.</B><BR><BR>

Design looks really good and great drawing technique although the front window on the rear view looks wrong(maybe its too long or wrong angle not too sure)...but nice sketch keep it up.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

i haven't noticed it, but now that you mention it the windshield on the rear view does look a little out of perspective. i'll fix it after school, and i'll have an interior view up too.<p>keep the comments coming everyone <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0">

besides mistakes its an ok design, will we evr get to see the 8 seris model?

well, i added the interior (which is only a very rough indication of what the final Series 3 will look like) and fixed the windshield on the rear view as best i could (i haven't done a convertible from this angle before, so i had trouble with that; the windshield still looks a little crooked to me so i'm going to keep working on it). also, about the series 8, i'm going to do at least one good drawing of it and i'll post it here soon. i might just scan the blueprint and post it for now, until i can get a good drawing up.

sorry to say:<br>- it mustn't have been intended: front is narrow, long and looking a bit out of perspective<br>- windshields on both pictures are wrong<br>nice to say:<br>- another great design. Looks fresh and exciting. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0">

i don't have anything planned for new york, but there will probably be a new avioli for barcelona (which is in may i think), as well as the production series 3 and the series 7 SUV for frankfurt/paris. i can't wait to see your shannon drawing by thr way <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0"> <br><BR><BR>
