Some month’s ago we gave you the very first photos of the new Jaguar F-Type Coupe, and today we can show you the clearest batch of photos taken at the Nürburgring where the F-Type Coupe took some quick laps before it disappeared again.
Just like the F-Type Roadster we expect the Coupe to be available in two V6 versions and one V8 for a start. But as we hear through the grapevine there might be some R and R-S versions of the F-Type in the pipeline in the future.
We expect the Power to be delivered from the current three engines – A 3.0 V6 340PS, 3.0 V6 380PS and 5.0 V8 495PS. Each features a Roots-type twin vortex supercharger mounted on the ‘V’ of the engine to maintain its compact dimensions.
Jaguar is a leader in Supercharged induction technology – it provides a linear delivery of performance and high levels of torque at all engine speeds, minimizing the gap between the driver’s demand for power and the engine’s response.

Well here it is the new Mercedes Benz S-Type in all its official glory, but just down the road in Stuttgart the Mercedes R&D department have been secretly testing the S-Type Coupe.
This evening, the new flagship for luxurious motoring landed in Hamburg on board an Airbus A300-600 DHL cargo plane. Mercedes-Benz had the new S-Class flown in exclusively from its birthplace in Stuttgart for its world premiere at Airbus in Finkenwerder. At the delivery centre for the Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger aircraft and a benchmark in travel comfort, Mercedes-Benz unveiled its new luxury saloon in front of around 750 international guests from the worlds of politics, industry and media. Flanked by the 20 current Mercedes-Benz models and musically accompanied by the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, the new top-of-the-line model from Stuttgart rolled across the tarmac as part of a spectacular show. In a dazzling display, it took up its position at the head of the Mercedes-Benz family and drove onto the stage with its first passenger, the global superstar Alicia Keys.
And the S-type Coupe was applauded by our elusive but heroic spy shooter, the S-Type is the true embodiment of a modern luxury saloon: it is an exclusive first-class mobile office akin to a business jet and also an exquisite centre of well-being at the same time. While achieving fuel-consumption and emissions values that appeared utopian just a few years ago even for a mid-size car, it raises the standard for automotive safety equipment to a new level.

BMW this week have shown the BMW M6 Gran Coupe at a private unveiling at the Nurburgring in Germany.
Even though the pictures don’t really reveal much from the spy shot’s taken last year, whilst undergoing extreme cold weather testing.
It does show us the finished article hidden under the camouflage, one thing was a surprising that the car is sporting a carbon fiber roof along with some more carbon detailing throughout the car although we are not sure of the option list on this private display, but the car also had Ceramic Brakes which hints at this being the M-Drivers-Package M6 Gran Coupe.

It looks like the Countryman coupé concept is off the drawing board at Mini’s design studio in Munich.
Here are the latest spyshots of what looks like a production prototype of the Mini’s answer to Range Rovers Evoque.
Strangely looking at the prototype pictured here it looks like the hint of suicide doors have been canned and they have gone for a 3 door variant unless Mini are hiding a further prototype in the Mini Research and Development center in Munich.
This will probably be the last revision of the current mini range on the old platform with the all new Mini allready appearing in prototype form.
