BMW i3 Wins Automotive Interiors Expo Award 2014

A car interior finally worthy of the Jetsons.

[gallery ids="541284,541286,541285"] Talk of design and performance dominate automotive writing and forums, but there is a lot to be said for interiors. Take BMW's i3 interior which was recently recognized for its interior innovation. 25 percent of the plastic used is recycled, the seats are made from recycled goods, the roofliner and other textiles are also the product of sustainable production. While all that is great for the environment BMW was able to also utilize to create an interior that is very pleasing to the eye, a feat you don't often see in green products. [Via BMW.]

'Clarion Builds' Program

Clarion aims to put the passion back into cars with vintage restorations.

Clarion BMW 2002 Build 11647

They say money can't buy you happiness. This maybe true, but money can buy you a vintage car and factory parts for you to restore it which would make any of us happy. Until that day comes when we can do that ourselves we have to watch in awe as others get the opportunity and thanks to Clarion more and more are getting that opportunity.

Clarion, who is known for their electronics, has launched the Clarion Builds program to restore, not only cars, but the passion for cars which is slowly fading away. The first restoration project was a 1974 BMW 2002. The O2, with the help of many partners, will be restored to its factory state, but with a few modern touches. Clarion will be outfitting the car with the latest in mobile entertainment and connected vehicle technologies.

With the combination of vintage automobiles and modern technologies, Clarion is bound to capture the hearts of old and young alike.
