Last Call- Devolved Deauville Edition


Do you remember the attempt to resurrect the de Tomaso brand a couple of years back with a Deauville rehash that looked like a Ford Fusion with the mumps? Well, that atrocity  wasn’t the first to sully the Deauville name, as this one-off Giardinetta version built for Mrs. de Tomaso proves.

    It's still preferable to this, and I'm firmly in the "two wheels good!" camp.

    It's like a Camry, less two wheels.

      I've never really understood how the Honda Deaville recieves such a panning for its boringness. OK, compared to the crotch rockets of this world it's not very invigorating, but it's a damn sight more accelerative than most cars. It's like saying swordfighting with a cutlass is boring compared to swordfighting with daggers.
      That's my terrible analogy of the day.

        I'm not a sportbike guy, but this is just about as boring as a motorcycle gets, somnolent exhaust note included. Yes, it's quite competent as a means of transportation, but nothing about it raises my pulse. The Tupperware-suppository appearance certainly doesn't help matters any. It's also unbelievably cramped for someone with long(ish) legs. Honda has & does build some fantastic motorcycles, but this is not one of them.

    Oh, fuck, my eyes. Okay I never thought I'd say this but I hate the wagon variant and love the sedan more. Now I think we all need a reminder of what it should look like.

    So am I the only one here that actually likes this? Sure, the styling is a little clunky and it reminds me more of a Saturn SW2 than a Pantera, but I'm still strangely attracted to it.

      Whew! I thought I was weird for really liking this. It's got a nice stance and I love the wheels, I'd rock it.

      Nope, I wouldn't kick it out of bed.

      I dig it. It doesn't go straight to the top of my fantasy car list, but I like it.

        Yeah, I'm not going to rush out and buy one, but if someone handed me the keys I wouldn't list it on eBay right away either.

      Another fan here, even if the ass end reminds me of this:

      No love for those.

    There have been a few unfortunate looking things with the De Tomaso badge on them.

      Is that… a C6 Corvette?

        It's a De Tomaso (later Qvale) Mangusta, it was its own platform. Later MG bought it and re-engineered it into the MG XPower SV.

    I dunno, I can dig it. Anything that weird from such a low-production manufacturer's got style and cred in my book, and it's a custom shooting brake to boot.
