Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series Track Package & Aero Package

The recently unveiled Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series Coupe revealed at Frankfurt and here are some spy shots of the Black Series Sporting the AMG Track Package and AMG Aero package.

The AMG Track Package includes exclusively developed tires, size 255/35 R 19 for the front and 285/30 R 19, active rear-axle transmission cooling, and a radiator located in the rear apron that allows the airflow to pass through it effectively.

The Aero dynamics package includes the front carbon fiber splitters and are located on the front bumper.

This package also includes a functionally tuned front splitter made of genuine carbon fiber and a fixed carbon-fiber rear Spoiler with an adjustable blade.

Both components not only increase the lift at the front and rear axle, they also aid the vehicle’s dynamic balance.

Powered by the 6.3 liter V8 engine throwing out 510 HP and torque of 457 ft-lbs, allowing the vehicle a 0 to 100 kph sprint time of around 4.2 seconds. Click Picture For Gallery

Range Rover Sport Spied on the Nurburgring

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.

Mercedes CLC – C117 Coupe Spyshots

Today we managed to snap some photos of the baby CLS, the new CLC. Codenamed C117, this little 4-door Coupe is based on a longer version from the platform made for the new A- and B-Class.

This platform will make it possible to offer both front- and all-wheel-drive versions, and with rumors of a high power AMG version it might be good with all-wheel-drive to be sure to get the power down.

Other engine options will be a petrol engine in two versions, delivering some 121 and 154 horsepower.

Diesel friends will be able to choose between a new 1.8 liter engine delivering two stages of power, 107 or 134 horsepower.

In all cases it will be connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission or a six-speed manual.

We expect the CLC to hit a show room close to you in 2013 and perhaps a teaser or two at the Frankfurt IAA.

BMW I8 & I3 World Premier – Munich 29/07/2011


i3 -Mega City Concept

Originally named as the MegaCity concept, the BMW i3 will be the first vehicle produced under the i brand when it arrives next year. Two structures make up both the i3 and i8’s LifeDrive architecture – predictably, the Life aand Drive modules.

As its name would suggest, the Life part of the equation is what contains the driver and passengers, and the platforms have been individually developed for each model. In the case of the i3, a lightweight body structure is made up of a combination of aluminum and carbon fiber-reinforced plastics, with the Drive module mounted underneath, obviating the need for a transmission tunnel and allowing BMW to install two bench seats for four occupants in the front and back while providing 200 liters (7.06 cubic-feet) of storage.

Underneath that lightweight body lies the Drive system, comprised of the suspension, battery and drivetrain, along with structural and safety components. A liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery back spans the undercarriage and supplies juice to an electric motor mounted directly above the rear-drive axle. Yup, this a rear-wheel-drive EV hatchback, with the motor putting out 170 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque through a single-speed gearbox. BMW claims the i3 can reach an electronically limited top speed of 93 miles per hour and make the run from 0-60 in under eight seconds.

An available PRO ECO mode tweaks the throttle and electronics to boost efficiency, and braking regeneration feeds kinetic energy back into the battery pack. Remarkably, BMW also claims that you can charge the battery back to full in six hours using a standard power socket and the i3’s batteries can get to 80 percent in one hour using a high-speed charger (we’ll be getting more details on both very soon).

i8 – Vision Concept

This car was first released in 2009 Frankfurt Motor  Show as the Vision Concept and was spied in Northern Sweden in 2010-2011 (Yellow Snow Edition)

Unlike the standard i3, the i8 will be a plug-in hybrid, with a turbocharged, 1.5-liter three-cylinder powerplant mounted up front and putting out 220 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. Combined with the electric motor, the run from 0-60 mph is claimed to blow by in under five seconds, with fuel consumption estimated at three liters per 100 kilometers and seven liters per 100 clicks when driven like… well, a BMW.

The three-pot works in tandem with a lithium-ion battery pack and front-mounted electric motor pulled from the i3 and driving the front wheels, allowing an electric-only range of up to 20 miles on a charge. Put both systems together and you’ve got a front-wheel-drive vehicle for maximum efficiency, a rear-driver for maximum fun and all-wheel drive for maximum grip. And if that isn’t enticing enough, the i8 has a perfect 50/50 weight distribution.

2013 Porsche Cayman Spotted at The Nurburgring

The 2013 Porsche Cayman has been spied on the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

Even though the prototype is camouflaged, we can clearly see that the car will adopt similar light clusters as the 911 prototypes along with a slightly less man like air intake.

Also we can make out some daylight running lights underneath the thickly clad camo tape.

We expect the Cayman S power output to be around the 320hp with an improved 3.4 liter and the standard Cayman to be around 265hp powered by the usual 2.9 liter.

We are expecting the new line of Porsches to be released in the second quarter of 2012.

2013 Shelby GT500 Sheds its Skin at the Nurburgring

This is the much anticipated photos of the 2012 Shelby GT500 with possible intercooling system cooling the forced induction from the turbos/twinturbos.

And this prototype also had some small splitters on each side of the front bumper to create more downforce on the front axle in high speed.

This model is rumoured to have around 580hp to compete with the Camaro Z28 and also now sports a aluminium block V6.

Subaru 0846 Variant of the Ft-86 Spyshots

Today the Subaru version of the Toyota-Subaru co-operation FT-86 has arrived to the Nürburgring in Germany for some track testing.

The two manufacturers are collaborating on a shared four-cylinder sports car that will be sold in two versions, beginning near the end of 2011, both sporting rear wheel drive for the purists.

Even if the Subaru version is very look-a-like to the Toyota/Scion there are some smaller changes. The rear side window for example. And in case with this prototype it is wearing MZ- numberplates, meaning its coming from the German Subaru test centre.

2011-2012 Porsche 911 Turbo Spied in Southern Germany

After proving its winter prowess, Porsche has taken vehicle testing back to Germany.

The upcoming next-generation Porsche 911 Turbo has been spotted this time around the Porsche Development Center and Test Track (Weissach).

The new 911 Turbo features wider fenders, air intakes in the rear fenders, and a rear bumper with integrated exhaust pipes.

The new 911 Turbo is touted to produce up to 600bhp. and the new 911 range will be unveiled at Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
