Mercedes-Benz first unveiled its Concept S-Class Coupe back in 2013, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, becoming a certain fact that the German automaker would carry on with this luxurious model. Here we are now, in 2014, with the old Merc ready to reveal the production coupe at the Geneva Motor Show, March 6, to head […]
Despite coming out of a pretty bad going financial situation, being caught between the GM rock and the German government hardplace, Opel still has dreams and ambitions about the future. The first and probably of most crucial importance as far as short term sightings are concerned is how Opel wants to surprise the crowds at […]
A new plan from Volkswagen came up at the 2011 Shanghai Motor Show, one that sounds pretty bad and could end up being great. It seems like VW is working towards introducing a new low-cost brand specifically for the Chinese market, the Spanish one at Seat.
I know the play on words is cheesy, somehow it doesn’t stop me enjoying speaking about Volkswagen’s latest people carrier concept. The new creation was presented at the 2011 New York Auto Show and the name chosen for it was Volkswagen Bulli; sorry for ruining the surprise.
Having barely shown us the new Mercedes A-Class Concept and its conceptual point, the Germans brought it to New York to tell us more. Actually, Mercedes also showcased the latest A-Class in Shanghai but that’s really another story. The one told in New York is much better.
I don’t really know why, but Audi’s R8 is tuning darling, and the V10 version is clearly in the top ranks. It’s probably because of the same class feel as the Porsche 911, another tuner magnet, but either way, this here Ingolstadt made V10 really shines.
So what if the VW Scirocco is a good looking car, it could always be a ruined a bit by some weird tuner you’ve never heard of couldn’t it? That was my first thought about what CSR Automotive could have done with the VW Scirocco but despite the wide array of changes it haven’t lost […]
No? Well, me neither but the Germans are going to actually make a Porsche Pajun. If the name is a bit weird it’s because of its birth, its market targeting and the guy who named the Porsche Panamera and the Porsche Cajun.
Mercedes made a large coupe, fitted it with an impressive engine and then put it on sale. Later on in life, that particular Mercedes coupe made it to the hands of Carlsson who turned into something they call the C25 Royale.
Even though they are generally the first company to complain about environmental legislation and carbon emissions standards, Porsche does seem to be at the cutting edge of fuel economy for the performance market. Their latest product in this direction is the 2012 Porsche Panamera S Hybrid, a car scheduled to be seen at the Geneva […]
In the world of specialist tuners, few stand to the challenge as much as G-Power does for BMW. The latest project the German tuner chose is one close to the hearts of every true blooded Bavarian fan, the E92 BMW M3 GTS.
Of all the places the world has seen affected by the economic crisis, Germany’s luxury car market is one of the leading downers. Happily, their luxury car production hasn’t experienced the same fate. While their domestic market has fallen by more than a quarter in volume, exterior trade keeps their companies working.
The newspapers in Munich speak of an interesting development within BMW’s plant. The news isn’t related to a new BMW, a new technology or anything similarly relevant to petrolheads. It’s related somewhat more to the detective novel types.
At the end of last month, Audi came to the SEMA show with a few interesting creations. One of which was the German’s take on autonomous mobiles the self-driven Audi TTS built in collaboration with Stanford University.
If you’re a regular person, you want a bit of style from your car, a lot of presence and a high driving position you can’t get anything better than the BMW X5. If you’re the sort of person who wants a BMW X5 that will outrun a Lotus Elise, you go for the completely mad […]
The Germans over at BMW have revealed their intentions to go into electric power quite some time ago. Not long after came the announcement mentioning a dedication towards the Megacity project. So far, we’ve got the interesting bits sorted, brimmed with anticipation so here comes BMW’s boring stuff, the plan, the economy, the business of […]
Apparently the Australian International Motor Show isn’t the sort of place where only Pickup trucks get revealed but can also be a good place to see an interesting Mercedes-Benz Concept. Actually, when I mean an interesting Mercedes-Benz Concept what I mean to say is that the Germans ran out ideas and tried to disguise a […]
Apparently not pleased with the factory’s tuned version of the Audi R8 V10, German tuner Wheelsandmore decided to do their own version. Besides looking a lot meaner than the Audi R8 GT version the Wheelsandmore version is a lot more hardcore.
Do you know why people like tuning companies? It’s because when manufacturers are giving you cars with new engines but hardly more power due to emissions and fuel economy standards, they come to the rescue and give you the cars “unplugged” version. There’s that reason, because I like thinking about and then there’s a more […]
I haven’t been doing this automotive news business for a long time but in that time I’ve claimed to be sad saying a manufacturer turned to making diesels, or hybrids or some sports car has died. It may be something most people who work at this can be found guilty with but this time it’s […]
