What we see here could be the last test drive for 2013 BMW M6 Cabrio as the Bavarian coupe convertible sedan spotted deployed with less camouflage sheet all over the body. Judging by the photos, we predict that the arrival for the 2013 M6 Cabrio could be anytime soon. We can’t predict the exact date, but we think that BWM could be bringing this vehicle for official unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show which will be held on March.
Another reason why the arrival of the 2013 BMW M6 Cabrio is getting nearer is because the new M6 sedan already unveiled and scheduled for sales in mid-later 2012. From this info, we conclude that the arrival of the roadster version should be completing the line-up as soon as possible. The 2013 M6 Cabrio convertible coupe sedan is carrying different body, but when it comes to engine and performance, BMW has not developed anything new.
The entire M6 models could be powered by the 4.4L V8 which means the engine is borrowed from the 2012 BMW M5 model. Rumor has it that for the 2013 M6 Cabrio, the Bavarian carmaker tweaked the engine a bit in order to produce 600 horsepower. The engine tweaking has to be done as the German automaker needs to justify the price difference between the two doors with the M5 models.
What we know is that as part of the M6 line-up, the 2013 BMW M6 Cabrio should be having difference exterior look from the regular 6-Series. Don’t forget that we are dealing with M division here as the spyshots revealed that the convertible coupe sedan carries air dam, new muscular nose for sporty styling, new bumper, and bulging bonnet.
The yellow blinding supercar photos that scattered on this post are the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport special edition. Yup… the supercar manufacturer knows that the name itself is not enough to draw enough crowds, so they want catchy yellow color as this color not only make the supercar stand out but also noticeable from miles away. Precise, it’s Bugatti folks… We can identify it no matter what.
Bugatti brings the Veyron Grand Sport special edition to 2012 Qatar Motor Show in order to attract more potential customers there. The idea of creating this supercar in special edition is because the supercar maker wants to honor and remember the Ettore Bugatti’s passion in experimenting car customization. By the way, the color is not straight yellow, but two-tone combination of yellow and black.
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport special edition dresses in bright yellow that covers the whole body with the lower side and the rims are in black color. Similar to the exterior, the interior of the supercar, especially the seating are covered in yellow leather and black stitching. Autoevolution.com reported that the center console of the Veyron Grand Sport special edition is in black carbon, but the dashboard, steering wheel, and gearshift is in black leather with yellow stitching.
Furthermore, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport is the current Veyron right now because the Veyron coupe already hit the last order in June last year. Bugatti offers 150 units of this special edition of supercar and so far, 45 units already sold which means that there are 105 units are still available. Grab it while you can, folks!
When it comes to tuning the supercar, we never thought that the Audi R8 can be this… well.. ahem.. Odd. Yup… We are not playing with your mind as we presenting these concept photos of Audi R8 LIMO which at the same time also serve as living proof that we do believe in no boundaries. Who is responsible for this kind of “harassment” on the R8 supercar?
The one who is responsible for this unique and creative idea of R8 LIMO is the Limo Broker which is a British limo hire company. This kind of company offers limo for hiring in case you need to impress the woman of your dream or just want to feel how does it feel to ride on one of the expensive limos in the world. Autoevolution.com reported that if Audi R8 LIMO comes to life, this vehicle can accommodate up to 8 passengers.
Powering the Audi R8 LIMO is still the thrilling 5.2L V10 engine with total power output around 196 mph or equals to 315 km/h. Unfortunately, Limo Broker has not yet confirmed whether this project is merely of concept, or about to go into production which means that we can’t share with you the estimated price tag as well. But, if these photos can’t satisfy your curiosity, you can watch the video here.
Here is what Limo Broker has to say about their R8 LIMO concept as we quoted from our aforementioned source, “Due to the fact that the Audi R8 sports car is a 2-seater vehicle, when it comes to hiring this luxury super car for special events, customers are limited to the number of people who can be transported which means for many, they have to opt for larger vehicles and miss out on a ride in the Audi.”
In order to be the carmaker with most production, Das Auto is opening all kinds of ways to complete that goal by 2018. One of them is launching the Exclusive version of the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet that offers the top of the class specs and features. Unfortunately, VW Group is a bit stingy for this model as the convertible coupe is for sale on the German market only. Das Auto assigns their “R” division to develop the Golf Cabriolet Exclusive for both the interior upgrades.
So, Volkswagen, what you offer the German market with the Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet Exclusive? The German carmaker equips the special edition of convertible coupe with Cool Nappa leather on the seats. The center sides and stitching on the seating are in Pepper White; while the sides and the head rests are in Titanium Black. The reason why Das Auto chose these colors is because they reflect the sunlight so the driver and the passenger will not get hot during the summer.
Is it just us for the arrangement on the seating is very familiar? Just so you know, the seating features are the same one that offers on the Lamborghini Gallardo Spider couple of years ago. Pretty understandable as VW Group also has some of their shares on the Italian Raging Bull auto manufacturer. Okay, moving on to the cosmetic parts as autoevolution.com wrote that the Pepper White material also covers the gear shifter, handbrake, and door panels.
The Golf Cabriolet Exclusive convertible coupe also equips with set of 17-inch Salamanca alloy wheels. Oh, we would like to remind you that what we attached is the picture of the standard version of 2012 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet. Das Auto sets the price tag for the Exclusive version of the Golf Cabriolet at €20,025. With that price, the convertible coupe is powered by 1.2 TSI engine with total power output 105 horsepower
Question: what will you do if your Audi RS3 Sportback already packs enough power but you still want more? Bring it to the aftermarket specialist is the only answer because you add as much power as you want as long as you are willing to pay the price. Check out what the Swiss aftermarket specialist – Sportec did to the RS3 Sportback as they loaded the German sporty hatchback with tech-focused modification package.
The Audi RS3 Sportback carries 2.5L five-cylinder powerplant with original turbocharged unit. But Sportec adds stainless steel exhaust system and ECU remap that successfully boosted the total power output to 408 horsepower and 550 Nm or 406 lb-ft of torque. Oh, and for customers outside Switzerland, Sportec is ready to add more power to the RS3 Sportback up to 500 horsepower.
To handle all the power, Sportec fitted the Audi RS3 Sportback with an adjustable coilover suspension courtesy of Bilstein. Autoevolution.com reported that the new suspension brings the German hatchback closer to the road between 20 and 40 mm and set of lightweight alloy rims in 20-inch size. The braking system also improved as Sportec assigns the Movit to responsible for giving the ultimate stopping power. Completing the looks of RS3 Sportback by Sportec is the Haldex AWD system which allows the owner to distribute the amount of power transferred to the rear axle by a remote control with the primary goal to cut down the understeer.
This is why sometimes we agree that supercars like Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4SV for sale only at certain countries. It is not like we have hidden grudge or despise certain country, but the fact that some countries don’t have the proper roads surface and capable driver. The photos that we attached already tell the story if its own. Who could be stupid enough to hurt the last edition of Murcielago LP670-4SV as the supercar replaces by the mighty Aventador?
The accident scene took place in the capital city of Indonesia – Jakarta. City that considered being one of the stressful rush hours and lack of traffic discipline. The Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4SV is merely a victim of incapable driver with below standard road surface. But in the end, no matter what the factors are, it all comes back to the person that drives and controls the vehicle.
Autoevolution.com wrote that the driver of Murcielago LP670-4SV lost control of the Italian Raging Bull supercar and successfully hit the concrete at the center of the road and instantly got rear-ended by another car. You see, we advice for Lamborghini if they want to sell their products to other country; the supercar manufacturer should do some kind of background check up to see if the person able to control its ego.
Sitting behind the steering wheel of one of the most expensive and limited edition supercars sometimes affect the other personalities of a person. We just hate to see the condition of the Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4SV and no official information whether the driver was okay or perhaps gone through some kind of temporary shock.
There has been a bit of confusion when we decided to refer the spyshots as the two-door 2013 BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo or the 4-Series. But closer inspection revealed that the prototype with heavy camouflage sheet all over the body definitely uses the F30’s platform. Oh, and the 2013 3-Series Gran Turismo is not a sedan or four-door as the rear end carries a hatchback styling. Code name for this prototype is F34 with the official unveiling will be taking place somewhere this year.
The Bavarian carmaker smartly covered the 2013 3-Series Gran Turismo hatchback and they almost had us to think that we are looking at the 3-Series sedan. But one part of the vehicle that reveals the true design of this prototype which is the rear end. Autoevolution.com referred that the 2013 BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo has little resemblance with the 5-Series GT as this hatchback is lower and carries svelter.
The best of all, no camel hump anywhere we look on the 2013 3-Series Gran Turismo. We predict that the simple hatchback is more practical than the unusual twin trunk arrangement that Bavarian carmaker applies on the 5-Series Gran Turismo. Okay, enough with the design as we are about to talk about the most important part of this hatchback – the engine range.
The possibility of engine choices for the 2013 BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo are much likely turbocharged petrol and reliable diesel. The transmission options could be the 6-speed manual with the 8-speed automatic as the optional feature for all engine types. The M version of 2013 3-Series Gran Turismo could be not arrived, as the Bavarian automaker might be developing the ActiveHybrid 3 Gran Turismo.
Can mention what is trending on the US now? No, it is not Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga as we are talking about automotive, not Hollywood gossips. What trending on US now is diesel engine and the fact that diesel fuel which once hated by the US customers are turning into one of the most wanted power source for their vehicles. The three-pointed German carmaker catches business opportunity on this condition and they announced the possibility of 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK CUV with diesel engine for sale at US market.
The 2013 GLK will not be the only model Mercedes is trying to offer to the US market. There is also big possibility of mid-size sedans as well with quite expensive price that goes along very well with the reliable powertrains and outstanding performance. Now, we already know that Mercie is offering the 2013 model year of GLK to fill the CUV market segment, but what kind of mid-size sedan that suitable for US market?
autoevolution.com tries to predict that the mid-size sedans that will accompany the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK could be the C-Class with diesel engine. Back to our main discussion about the diesel version of the CUV, the German carmaker offers 2.2L to power the 220 CDI 4Matic with total power output sets at 170 horsepower. It seems like the project can continue without any problem as the US emissions laws already granted the Mercedes-Benz’s diesel engine which means that all we have to do is waiting for the official US launching for the 2013 GLK CUV for the US market.
