Performance will be 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds. It will be targeted to be in direct competition with the BMW’s mighty v8 M3

Engine will output 450bhp and will be a 4.2-litre twin-turbo V8, Compared to the 414bhp 4.0-litre V8-engined M3 and boasts a Quattro four-wheel drive system too, available with a choice of both six-speed manual and seven-speed dsg derivative gearboxes.

In addition to four-wheel drive, it will also boast Audi’s new active rear differential – as used by the latest S4 – which helps distribute torque to different wheels, aiding agility and traction.

2011 Mercedes CLS AMG Nurburgring

This morning as I was driving to the ring I spotted the 2011 Mercedes CLS AMG driving in an aggressive manner overtaking traffic on the road to the ring.

I wanted to get a few snaps of the car so my partner Jane pulled the camera out and attempted to get some shots as the driver tried to evade being snapped.

The current CLS 63 AMG shares its engine with the previous-generation E 63 AMG 378kW (514hp) from a 6.3-litre V8 installed and the new amg should be making making 387kW (527hp). The rear wheels should be Mercedes Speedshift MCT 7-speed gearbox.

All i can say is the current testcar and driver tried to evade the pursuit and we still managed to get some very average pictures, So they obviously need to tune the powerplant a little before the release in 2011.

Nissan GTR M-Spec 2011 In test on the Nurburgring

Today at the Nurburgring, this GT-R Spec-M with lightly camouflaged front and rear bumpers showing the higher vent detailing under the camouflage and seems not to have the headlight washing sprays.

Where the limited-edition SpecV focuses on reducing the weight and Sharpening up of the handling, the SpecM is expected to offer a more refined interior with higher quality leather seats and other premium options unavailable on other models, and the bass speakers wont be as obvious.

Power is probably unaltered, staying with the regular GT-R’s 360kW and 590Nm of torque. It’s very likely, that the suspension will be adjusted to provide a softer comfortable ride

If the V-SpecM is on the way, expect Nissan To unvail the model at next months Tokyo Motor show

Lexus LF-A Spy Shot in the Eifel Valley

After a few years in hiding the Lexus LF-A has reared its Beautiful head. The sub 5 litre v10 engine sounds like a dream and makes a noise to make the likes of Lamborghini and Ferrari take note. I first came across the car on the 15th of September in Cochem overlooking the picturesque Castle.

But without my camera I dashed back to pick it up and played cat and mouse across eifel trying to get a snap of the most beautifull looking Japanese car I have seen for years (My Opinion).
