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 latest spyshots of the final production prototype of the MK7 Golf. The cars is still under heavy camouflage so most of the detail and styling cues are still under wraps.
However what is interesting in this new model is the brand new MQB chassis that will be shared with the Audi A3 Etc. It will have a longer wheelbase and will also have more aerodynamic features.
The range-topping Golf models will use a new 2.0-liter TFSI Petrol engine with more producing around 240 hp on the GTI and around 310 hp in the Golf R which will be equipped with VW’s 4Motion 4 wheel drive system.
VW accidently gave us our first look at a very early clay prototype of the Mk7 Golf featuring a agressive snout and more steeply raked windscreen through an official video back in 2009.
Here are the latest spyshots of the upcoming Volkswagon Beetle Cabriolet undertaking winter testing in northern Sweden. It looks like it wasn’t hot enough in the subzero temperatures to go topless. The new generation Beetle was unveiled last year but was leaving the cabriolet for a probable unveiling in either production concept at the Geneva Auto Salon next month. Powering the Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet will be the same range of engines found in the current model and mated to the DSG transmission or a six speed manual.
Engine Choices:- 1.2 TSI 105PS which will do the 0-62 dash in 10.9 seconds. 1.4 TSI 160PS Which will do the 0-62mph dah in 8.3 seconds.
We expect some R Variants to be seen testing sometime this year from the concept shown in Frankfurt in 2010.
Here are the latest pictures of the upcoming 2012 Mercedes A Class sporting less camouflage than the previous spyshots.
The two cars are undergoing rigourous winter testing in northern Sweden which is reaching the end of its test cycle as its spent a lot of time on the Nurburgring in Germany and was first spotted in 2009.
The car is allready in production prototype from and hints at the final shape which is close to the A Class concept shown in Shanghai in april last year albeit more doors.
Powering the unit is a multitude of petrols ranging from 109 hp to the flagship petrol sporting a 210 hp turbocharged four cylinder along with a similar output diesel range.
Also a AMG variant is in development and expected in middle of 2013 with the above model arriving at the Geneva Autoshow in march.
