2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG

It is 2012 Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG, completed by a unique hood and wider fenders. The machine is 5.5-liter V8. With twin turbo and direct injection, it produces 550 hp of power and 590 lb-ft of torque gives you the optional performance package. The two engines are set to AMG’s compact, lightweight, quick-shifting MCT seven-speed transmission.

They increase the use of aluminum to this car, but the weight is still 4,114 pounds.  Don’t worry, it’s light. While the fuel economy is 23 mpg. This car will be launched in May (in United States) and you’ll get the information about the price before the launch. But the current model stickers cost you about $100,000.

All-Chromed Brabus Mercedes-Benz SLR Mclaren Spotted in London

All-Chromed Brabus Mercedes SLR Mclaren

Despite having been replaced by the SLS, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren is one of the world’s most fascinating sports cars. It gets even better when the people that constantly think perfect isn’t good enough, Brabus, by letting customers feel the SLR further individualize their vehicle. However, some Arab millionaire billionaire gentleman has gone a step beyond that and has chromed out his example.

We wouldn’t have known this fact were it not for the efforts of Youtube user Marchettino, who seems to always be at right time in the right place. This amazing chromed Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren sports car even has metallic tint on its windows, and those wheels are perfect for it. It seems that the owner of the car has also brought some equally rich friends along, as we spotted the stunning new Koenigsegg Agera R-bach there.

The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren SLR sports car sits on Brabus Monoblock VI 20-inch alloy wheels mounted on high-performance Pirelli or Yokohama tires in sizes 255/30 ZR 20 and 305/25 ZR 20.

In terms of mechanical changes, the power tuning for the supercharged 5.5-liter (335.5 cu. in.) engine consists of special camshafts, a fuel cooling system and a high-performance exhaust that increase the power output of the V8 compressor engine of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren sports car by 24 hp to 650 hp at 6,500 rpm.

Thanks to all that German grunt, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren sports car storms to 100 km/h (62 mph) from rest in just 3.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of up to 340 km/h (211 mph).

We don’t know what’s inside the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren sports car, but give that Brabus has had their hands on it, it all depends on the owners wallet. Regardless, there should be a sport steering wheel with integrated buttons for manual shifting of the automatic transmission of Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren sports car, carbon-fiber on the dashboard, center console and door trim somewhere in there. What if the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren got all chromed out inside as well?

 

Audi Launches the Video Teaser on Audi R8 GT Spyder

Audi R8 GT Spyder

Audi R8 GT Spyder sports car new video teaser showing its fastest drop-top model ever has been released by Audi. The video teaser follows after the official public release of the roofless sports car at Le Mans 2011, and show the car on road and on track performance, hinting at the convertible supercar’s heritage.

By now you probably already know that the only 333 lucky mortals will get to own Audi R8 GT Spyder. The new flagship of the Audi range now develops a total of 560 hp – 35 more than the regular V10 Spyder and the same as the R8 GT Coupe it draws its power from. The supercar is also full 85 kilograms (187.39 lb) slimmer than the already toned regular version, thanks in part to the extensive use of CFRP.

The Audi R8 GT Spyder sports car is capable of two very impressive figures: a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 317 km/h (196.97 mph). The rear spoiler, front splitter, upgraded brakes and weight reduction regime (less sound isolation, thinner glass and carbon-fiber components) have all carried over from the R8 GT Coupe, as has the Alcantara interior.

Speaking of the interior of Audi R8 GT Spyder sports car, it’s black and can be adorned with stitching in a choice of titanium gray or crimson for added refinement. Alcantara upholstery comes standard – on the sport steering wheel and windshield frame, too.

Standard equipment on the Audi R8 GT Spyder sports car includes LED headlights, LED tail lights, an automatic air conditioning system, the navigation system plus, an alarm system and the driver information system with a built-in laptimer.

Audi R8 GT Spyder sports car only available for 333 units, so talking about standard equipment and interior quality is a bit theoretical; they should sell faster than new iPhones. The Audi R8 GT Spyder sports car will have a base price of €207,800 in Germany.

 

New Look for Bentley Continental GTC by Prior Design

Prior Design Restyles Bentley Continental GTC

Prior Design is one of tuning houses has been developing a styling kit for the Bentley Continental GTC.  The aerodynamic pack which uses the High Society designation which brings multiple changes with many of them are being focused on the front of the car such as a new front apron that uses a carbon fiber lip, a set of air vents for the hood, as well as a sports grille with two carbon-fiber air outlets.

If we notice the side of the Bentley Continental GTC, we find a set of redesigned side sills that offers the vehicle a lower appearance. At the rear side, Prior Design has added a new bumper that incorporates a diffuser.

Not only that, to emphasize the Bentley Continental GTC presence, Prior Design also installed a stainless steel exhaust system which increases power and brings a more aggressive sound, as well as a set of generously-sized lightweight alloy rims.

Prior Design seems only working on the exterior look of the Bentley Continental GTC because the interior only limited to the replacement of the original wooden trimming with a carbon fiber which has been used to offer the driver and passengers a sporty feeling.

On the press release, Prior Design states, “For Prior Design from Kamp-Lintfort, development of an aerodynamics construction kit for this open dream-Bentley was, of course, a challenge that the designer tackled with respect and a sure instinct. The result now seamlessly merges into already-impressive series of beautiful body kits for luxury automobiles and sports cars.”

The 2013 Volkswagen Bluesport is Not For Sale

2013 Volkswagen Bluesport

Seriously? No… we are not kidding, but we will tell you later. Volkswagen has been teasing us with the sports car dream since 2003, but yet none of it makes it to the reality. But, that might be about the change. An anonymous source in Europe tipped off that the marquee brand for what is now the world’s third largest automaker will likely add an affordable mid-engine two-seat convertible patterned on the 2013 Volkswagen Bluesport which made its debut on the 2009 Detroit Motor Show.

Yes, we have the same questions just like you. Why Volkswagen (keeps) teasing us again with an evidently showroom-ready design, and so far in advance? Turns out, Volkswagen has been in a very good mood lately, being one of the few major car manufacturers which actually gained sales in 2008 despite the deteriorating global economy crisis.

So, how is the 2013 VW Bluesport concept exactly? Well, it meant to symbolize the company’s health and rosy future. No less important, it sends a message that Volkswagen will not sacrifice driving fun for low emission and high mpg. Or in other words, VW wants you to have it all, and of course at a reasonable price.

Anyway, we managed to get a little bit info on the engine. The VW Bluesport convertible coupe sports car will probably come with electro-hydraulic power steering, and engine stop/start system, and antilock four-wheel disc brakes with a regenerative function for keeping the battery charged and powering certain accessories. Volkswagen maybe will mount a 1.6-liter TSI engine which able to deliver 220hp and coupled with six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed dual-clutch DSG.

Will the 2013 Volkswagen Bluesport is for sale? Of course it is, but is not likely to arrive in the market until 2012 at the earliest. Guess all the Volkswagen’s fans have to be patience to drive the not-so-blue-ish convertible coupe sports car.
