One of the striking car, not fully appreciated in our market, sports car Audi TT. In January-March 2019, the bought only 11 Russians.

The first three months of the year ended for the Russian market drop by 0.3%. April went down by 2.7%, and the total result of four months: 539 946 vehicles (-1.0 per cent). The Association of European businesses (AEB) in the beginning of the year predicted the result of all of 2019 as +3.6 per cent. Now the prediction in question. This unstable situation is different companies are perceived in different ways. Someone decided to sustain a pause before displaying new cars or even to clean the model with low sales, someone, on the contrary, felt that now is the time to boldly take customers from rivals.

The range of models that have appeared since the end of March to early may, is the widest. From the SUV UAZ hunter Expedition is for 984 900 rubles to the Roadster of the Porsche 911 Speedster for 21 681 000.

Audi in April turned sales models TT and R8. If TT in March 2019, the somehow sold (in one instance, according to the AEB), the R8 coupe de facto ceased to interest customers much earlier. The last time they bought in July of 2018. Over the past year R8 has chosen only seven people, while the Audi TT — 101.

Interestingly, but the figure for the TT was only slightly worse than the crossover Haval H6 Coupe (115 units in 2018 and nine in January-March), another model who left the Russian market in April. However, Hawala on the approach of a number of new productsthat will soon be localized at the new plant, near Tula. But while the Audi brand to replace the departed sport models nothing. As a consolation, put in the merit of the Ingolstadt launch in our market the diesel version of sedan A8.

Finally, we note the noticable fluctuations in sales. Better things went this year, Geely brand (2352 machines for January to April, +294% by 2018, or an increase of almost four times). Her leverage is a crossover Atlas (about 90% of the volume). The brand Haval growth of 192% (three times) or until 2055 machines, lions share of which is model H6. Negative dynamics among the cars are the most worrying from Lifanov (1853, -60%), light commercial Mercedes-Benz models (490, -77%) and the brand SsangYong (four cars -94%), which we have actually frozen. The lineup of the two cars are not appreciated in January-April, buyers of a Honda (621, -57%). Selling off leftovers nearly gone Ford (11 481, -35%).

“That sounds controversial, but I believe that after the development of the car and weight of components to it, you can probably design most of the other things […] is important To me that I was creative, this is a stimulus to life,” says Kalam on the eve of his 65th birthday.

A month ago Ian Callum left brand Jaguar, where he worked for 20 years, explaining that it’s “time for personal and professional development.” Now in the British Warwick has started a new company Callum with specialization in “design and engineering business,” “integrated design, development and manufacturing of small series and custom”. Kellam in the firm are not major, and one of the founders. He admits that he is already working on the appearance of a new car.

The company Callum four “fathers” (left to right): technical Director Adam Donfrancesco (Noble, Aston Martin Vantage GT8 and GT12, the Jaguar F-type GT4), design Director Ian Callum, commercial Director Tom bird (PwC, Barclays, Jaguar Land Rover, Jaguar C-X75), program Director David Fairbairn (18 years of experience in the automotive industry, Jaguar Lightweight E-type).

“The focus [of the company Callum] will be only those things that we like. I don’t want to design the interior of a train or a kettle. I was interested in doing art, not pure practicality, explained Ian in an interview with Top Gear. — The new car will be. This is a large and ambitious project. Chassis, power plant, exterior, interior — we’re going to work through. One day I want to build a machine entirely, and it is a good place to start”.

In an interview with Pistonheads online designer added: “I want to take some of those cars are worked, and slightly alter them. I have such a right, whether Aston or Jaguar. This is a good starting point to engage in promising projects. Don’t want them to think I was just a store.”

“My name hanging over the door, but if I want to succeed I need to surround yourself with good people […] In the team’s four Directors, all with equal rights, there’s no hierarchy,” explains Ian. Stylized letter “C” — company logo Callum.

In Warwick the company of 18 employees is situated on an indiscreet area in 1858 m2. All the necessary equipment and the latest technologies are available (like with the support of an unnamed investor). In mind there are providers and contractors. Details about the first draft will be published “in the coming weeks.” Ian Callum seem happy: “I was very lucky. Don’t get me wrong, but now I have the choice of what to do each day. I’ll be the designer of your future. I had, maybe, 15 years old, and I want to use them to the maximum.”
