Here are the latest spyshots from the Nordschleife industry pool at the Nurburgring in Germany.
Here is the 2013 Opel – Vauxhall junior still hiding under its camouflage.
We snapped the Adam on its first laps around the Nürburgring but as you all know it has been photographed in both other places in Germany as well as in Sweden during the winter. The Adam is based on a shorted version of the new platform that will also underpin the next generation Corsa and will be available at the dealers in spring 2013.
Production will begin at the Eisenach plant in Germany in late 2012, with sales beginning in 2013and will retail at around £9500.
This is BMWs answer to the Mercedes CLS AMG and Audi flagship S7, the M6 Gran Coupe has been spotted in light camouflage during cold weather testing in Scandinavia. With its deep front spoiler and wider fenders it looks really aggressive and the M trademark quad exhaust pipes finish the back off beautifully.
Powered by the same high revving turbocharged V8 engine as the M5 and the just revealed M6 Coupe and Convertible, the M6 Gran Coupe has atleast 560 wild horses to play with. Rumors are even talking on a 20-40 hp power boost for the M6 Gran Coupe, making it 580-600 hp in total.
All this power will be sent to BMW M´s latest seven-speed Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic.
Here we have got the latest and clearest Spyshots of the C-X16 Mule which was revealed in Concept form in Frankfurt in 2011.
As you can see this is no ground up chassis which will be used in the final form but this shorter wheel based mule is testing the power train which will be ultimately mated to the production prototypes.
C-X16 is powered by an experimental hybrid powertrain that combines a new all-alloy 3.0 Litre V6 Supercharged engine with a performance-boosting electric motor inspired by Formula One’s Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS).
C-X16’s is constructed from an all aluminium body shell .
A unique combination of lightness, strength and torsional rigidity results in greater handling agility, faster acceleration, shorter braking distances and improved fuel economy in comparison to an equivalent steel-bodied car.
It is being billed as having 380hp along with 332 (lb ft) of torque mated to a 8 Speed Gearbox with integrated KERS.
0 to 60 will be achieved in a very respectable 4.4 and a top speed limited at 186mph and unbelievably a combined 41 mpg.
If Jaguar pull this car off with them specs they will be competing with the likes of Porsche Panamera and the Mighty M5.
