Here are the latest spyshots of the upcoming 911 Turbo Coupe in very light camouflage and just hides some of the detailing on the front bumper.
Looking closely at the spyshots in the images above, we can clearly see the trademark induction inlets supplying the artic cool air to the 6 cylinder twin turbo boxer engine, as well as its wider rear end and oversized spoiler will aid the AWD system in downforce and grip.
The rear bumper on this new 911 Turbo also features additional cooling vents and a set of integrated exhaust pipes which are likely to be changed.
From The current 997 generation, the 911 Turbo is 4.5 cm wider stance than the regular Carrera.
The engine is likely to be around the 565 hp to compete with the Nissan GTR and is likely to release an interesting nurburgring lap time video close to release in late 2012.
The car is also likely to have an optional upgrade to the ‘PDK-S’ dual clutch transmission sporting an additional gear to keep shorter gear ratio to aid acceleration and mid range torque.
We expect a production prototype to be shown at Geneva in a couple of months….
A bestseller has become even more attractive: Audi has updated the A4 series. New solutions for efficiency, driving dynamics and infotainment, along with an even more attractive design, attest the “Vorsprung durch Technik” achieved by the A4 Sedan, the A4 Avant, the A4 allroad quattro and the S4.
The new look further accentuates the horizontal lines at the front end. The engine hood is more arched, the upper corners of the single frame grille are tapered, and the cross ribs and the Audi rings are highlighted three-dimensionally. The grille is painted gray, with high-gloss black on the six-cylinder models or in combination with the S line exterior package. The redesigned bumpers are striking with their angular air inlets, their revised grilles and the flat front fog lights. The A4 allroad quattro is distinguished by its grille’s horizontal chrome applications and by the round fog lights.
The headlights have also changed, with a slight wave at the bottom edges, and a re-arranged interior. Xenon plus headlights are available from Audi on request. The LED daytime running lights form a narrow, optically homogeneous band that remains open in the vicinity of the xenon lens. The adaptive light together with dynamic and static cornering lights are available on request.
The tail lights reflect the shape of the headlights, and in combination with xenon plus have homogeneous strips of LEDs. The bumper with its diffuser insert has been redesigned, with the exhaust system always terminating in two tailpipes.
The interior of the A4 models has also been refined. Audi offers a wide selection of new steering wheels with chrome and high-gloss inlays, with the leather sport steering wheel also featuring a flattened lower rim. The steering arm and the ignition key have been modified. High-gloss applications and the slender chrome trim at the controls add elegance to the interior.
The Audi S4, available in the Sedan and Avant versions, employs the most powerful engine in the line – the 3.0 TFSI with 245 kW (333 hp) and 440 Nm (324.53 lb-ft) torque. The Sedan’s average fuel consumption is a mere 8.0 liters per 100 km (29.40 US mpg) – with an impressive performance: The S4 accelerates in 5.0 seconds from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) and achieves an electronically limited maximum speed of 250 km/h (155.34 mph).
The modified Audi S4 is identifiable from the changes to the headlights, the bumpers, the air inlets and colors. The interior also contains subtle changes in appearance. The S sport suspension and 18-inch wheels featured on the S4 deliver outstanding road grip.
After stiff competition from BMW and Audi Mercedes are revamping their S Class for 2013.
These spy shots have revealed a slightly longer wheelbase along with a longer low slung profile. Fashion says that it will house an all new LED daytime running lights and indicators.
We expect the nose will follow the SLS styling cues on this model with a broader snout. As far as power unit we expect the following:- twin turbo 4.6L V8 producing 430 HP, a twin turbo 5.5L V12 delivering 520 HP, and an AMG twin turbo 5.5L V8 getting between 550 HP and 600 HP.
Mercedes’ Head of Research and Development, Dr. Thomas Weber, has previously revealed that the new S-Class will also feature a plug-in variant model based on the 2010 Vision S500 Plug-In Hybrid Concept capable of 70MPG!
We Expect to see the revealed car possibly 2nd quarter 2012
The Subaru BRZ is edging closer to a final production prototype, We recently spied the new pictures of the highly-anticipated Subaru FT-86 variant the BRZ.
The car will be exclusively Rear Wheel Drive.
Caught undergoing testing near the Nürburgring, the heavily camouflaged prototype looks virtually identical to the Toyota FT-86 but is distinguished by a revised front bumper and LED daytime running lights.
The BRZ measures 4.2m in length, 1.8m wide and stands 1,3m high.
The rear-wheel drive (RWD) sports coupe will also feature Toyota’s direct-injection technology, called D-4S, the naturally-aspirated 2.0 litre horizontally-opposed Boxer engine is touted to have 200bhp.
The 2013 Range Rover will be the fourth generation superceding the original that was produced from 1970 to 1996, the second series platform lasted from 1994 to 2001, and the current “Stormer Concept” that has been in production post 2002.
These Spyshots even though heavily camouflaged hints at its longer wheelbase and completely revised shell.
By using the lightweight material, engineers could lose up to 40 percent from the weight of the current Range Rover’s unpainted body shell, equating to a saving of roughly 660 to 880 pounds. Advanced composites are also expected to be used for certain elements, such as the body panels and rear tailgate.
