AKFG began as a college band back in in a private university in Yokohama. It was the first and, to date, the only major project for three of its members -- Masafumi Gotou lead vocals and guitarTakahiro Yamada bass and vocals and Kensuke Kita guitar and vocals. Soon they were joined by drummer Ijichi Kiyoshi, and this lineup proved to be stable, lasting over the course of three albums and while gearing up to release their fourth in springnot counting the many singles -- important releases in Japan, where CD prices are among the highest in the world, increasing the demand for cheaper records.
In the 60s and 70s, British Leyland worked on a hatchback that would replace the original Mini. However, such a design had never reached production. Maybach cars were originally meant to have a biturbo V24 engine, displacing 15 litres and making about HP. Due to packaging issues and problems with deigning a durable enough gearbox, the biturbo V12 from the Mercedes S and CL was used instead.
First design sketches for the Mercedes C-Class depicted a car with a more rounded appearance. The Mercedes CLS could have never seen production, if not for an executive seeing an employee-made drawing of "a Jaguar built by Mercedes" and deciding to put it into production.
Cadillac originally planned their models to have an OHC V12 engine. The Fiat Panda was originally meant to be built on a streched platform of the Its name was originally planned to be "Rustica", but someone pointed out that given Fiat's reputation for corrosion, a name containing the word "rust" shouldn't really be considered for any of the brand's products.
The Fiat Panda was planned to be an experimental lightweight low fuel consumption 5-seat small car, but ended up as a more traditional city car. Also, the vehicle's name was originally meant to be "Gingo", but the protests of Renault, makers of the Twingo, blocked the change.
The Fiat 's original designs depicted a 5-door car with styling similar to the VW New Beetle, but with a more toy-like appearance. The VW Beetle's original replacement was a project codenamed " EA ", a mid-engined hatchback with the motor below the front seats, However, technical difficulties and the high projected cost of producing such a vehicle made the EA not enter production.
Between and Porsche worked on a roadster slotting below the Boxster, but the idea ended up getting abandoned. The Porsche was planned as a replacement, but ended up being a more luxurious alternative to it. In the late s, BMW was working on the idea of a Vpowered car. There even were a few prototypes of a 6.
However, the car never ended up hitting production.
The 7-Series-based vehicle never saw production, whiule the 3-series and 5-series-based ones morphed into the GT versions of these cars.
Caterham tried to release a car based on the Renault Alpine, being in an alliance with the latter. Unfortunately, the British company did not have the money it took to design the new model and the car ended up existing only in the digital form and as clay models. The alliance also wanted to make a Caterham-branded subcompact and small crossover in order to get more appeal in the Asian markets.
These vehicles never went further than the general idea. The Lamborghini LM was a civilian adaptation of the Cheetah, a military prototype that had too high fuel consumption to be accepted, and might had not existed if the Cheetah got greenlit for army service.
Lamborghini wanted to release a mid-engined 4-seater coupe called "Espada" in The car was planned to be built using a stretched Gallardo spaceframe and mechanics, but never saw a release.
Later, the company was tooling with the idea of building a front-engined 4-door sedan, like the prototypical Estoque, but instead settled on developing an SUV, the Urus. DeLorean Motor Company wanted to release a 4-door counterpart of the DMC, but the vehicle never made it into production, due to a lack of funds for engineering it.
The Land Rover Series I's prototypes had a single seat and the steering wheel in the middle, due to the buyer demographics being perceived as having familarity with that layout, driving tractors as part of their work.
The final production version ended up being equipped with 3 front seats and a normal left- or right-mounted steering wheel. The Ford Mustang was originally meant to be a 2-seat roadster with a rear-mounted V4 engine."Rewrite" (リライト, Riraito) is a song by Japanese rock band Asian Kung-Fu Generation.
