You might have thought that anyone who's willing to go to the trouble of modifying his ride with questionable exterior modifications in the name of fuel efficiency would start with a small, efficient vehicle in the first place. Apparently, that's not always the case, as can be seen by the Toyota T100 pickup truck above.

When we find modded cars such as the Smart or the Tesla, we always raise an eyebrow about the impact this might have on fuel economy. However, this is not the case with the Aerocivic or the vehicle you see above: a modded Prius that is supposed to have an even lower aerodynamic drag than the original. According to AutoLabo, the creators said the current build opens the door to more "eco-tuning," leaving aside questions about the look of huge fenders and nearly-impossible additions that cover the

It's been proven that simple aerodynamic mods can make a big overall difference on your fuel economy, though the results can't always be described as pretty. Thanks to a tip from a reader, we can again see that enterprising drivers can make easy modifications to the exterior of their vehicle in an effort to cheat the wind. Make sure you use something really light weight, like... say, cardboard. Keep it out of the rain, avoid speed-bumps and don't go too fast and you should be good to go. While y

The Geneva Motor show promises to have plenty of green products on display, and Saab intends to join the fun with its 9-X BioHybrid concept, which we previously thought would be called the 9-1X. We already know the 9-X BioHybrid will draw heavily from the styling cues of the Aero X and the 9X concepts, and now we're getting the scoop on the eco-friendly powerplant of the wagon/hatch.

For a car designer, being honored by ELLE magazine might not be something you rush to append to your Curriculum Vitae. On the other hand, good design is good design, and the difference between the design cognoscenti and lay people is largely an ability to verbalize the pleasing elements of a form. Most people unschooled in the history and theory of design merely say "it's nice, I like it," or the oft-uttered phrase around Autoblog HQ - "that's hot."

Like their competitors, Ferrari uses advanced aerodynamics to keep their cars on the ground. But what if they flipped their technology upside down to create an aircraft? The result could very well be this, the Piaggio P180 Avanti II.

Saab's offering up a Nordic Edition 9-5 for 2008, and no that doesn't mean an integrated sauna in the SportCombi and a complimentary copy of ABBA's Greatest Hits, alltför dålig. The package is available as an upgrade for mid-level Vector versions of the sedan and wagon, and consists of cosmetic, equipment, and comfort enhancements. Leather swathes the entire interior, which gets a better audio system, special metallic trim and an electrochromic rearview mirror. New 17-inch alloys fill

Tucked away in a corner of the OC Auto Show Underground, where tuners come out to play, we found an SSC Aero. Sitting amidst a Novitec Ferrari F430, a Superformance LeMans Coupe, a Mosler that still had Bullrun stickers on it, the SSC nonetheless managed to stand out. The car is still a bit of an enigma, but promises to be one of the world's fastest cars once it gets into the hands of testers. We volunteered to probe the claimed top speed of 260 mph, but were politely denied. Click the read link
