Here are the latest photos showing the Mercedes AMG SLS Black Series during cold weather testing in the artic circle.
The car is a direct replacement for the SL65 AMG Black Series from 2008 and we expect it to be as insanely dangerous in this form.
It will be badged as the SLS AMG Black Series and is expected to output around 690 ponies, This is where information is vague as engineering the current 6.2-liter V-8 up is one possibility but unlikely, The other is introducing the new 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8. From the large air intakes on the front of this prototype it could be feeding the Twin intercoolers required for the forced induction.
Also the detailing is showing a wider track along with the usual Black Series aggressive arches along with clever use of composites to reduce weight, we also expect numerous chassis and brake modifications to mate to the increase in power and torque.
This car is still in Prototype mule form from the current SLS and is likely to have another 2-3 months to go before the production prototype will be spotted probably at the Nurburgring in early may.
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 are the very first photos of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster spied in northern Sweden under some very difficult lighting conditions.
This car has the same spec engine wise as the current Aventador, V12, 700 horsepower, 690 Nm, 2.9 seconds to 100 km/h and a top speed at 350 km/h.
On the photos we can clearly see the camouflage that is trying to hide the fact that the roof can be lifted off, and it looks like the roof could be made of carbon fiber instead of the soft top fabric found on the Murcielago Roadster.
Not much more specs can be discussed as this is very early days.
Deep in the Arctic Circle we have spied something which albeit is a battery powered vehicle but apart from that we are clueless..
These are the details of what we know it is electric it is from a German OEM, from first looks it seems to look like a Smart but then other photos lead me to think wiesmann but something tells me an EV isn’t their bag.
So this ones up to you what do you guys think it is???
The 2014 Mercedes C-Class (internally called BR205) has been spotted during its first winter testing and we can show you the clearest photos yet.
As we can see, the prototype is wearing heavy camouflage which makes it really hard to see any lines of the new design but at least the roof line is clearly visible. If we try to look beyond the camouflage at the front we expect there will be some influences taken from the F800 Concept Car shown in Geneva 2 years ago with a more marked front grille. Since the C-Class is the most important car for Mercedes they will not experiment too much with the design, but it still needs to look dynamic and sporty to give both the Audi A4 and the 3-Series from BMW a match.
The new C-Class will not only be offered with various petrol and diesel engines but there will also be a hybrid variant for the first time.
First out in 2014 is the sedan, followed by the wagon six months later. About one year after that we will see a coupe and convertible version as well.
And this time the C-Class will be produced in the US as well, the Alabama plant will build the C-Class alongside the GL and M-Class.
