Jaguar C-Type

Jaguar has plans to produce an all-new C-Type that will be positioned further upmarket and will cost between £45,000-£50,000. The new model, which will sit below the XK, will be designed to rival top-end performance cars such as Audi’s TT RS, the Mercedes SLK 55 AMG and Porsche’s Cayman. With a blend of pace, luxury and practicality, the C-Type will have a futuristic design, an XJ-style grille and distinctive headlight arrangement.

The C-Type is likely to be available as a fixed-head coupé or a roadster. As you can see from these images, the C-Type will be a forward-looking design with an XJ-style grille and distinctive headlight arrangement. With features such as the chrome mesh, sporty air intakes and a bold bonnet bulge, the car is sure to turn heads.

Adding to its good looks are the sculpted edges along the flanks, vast chrome alloys and pert but muscular tail complete with twin exhaust pipes. To complete the look, there is an electrically operated folding canvas roof to be stowed behind the occupants’ heads. The C-Type is as luxurious as it is practical. It has about the same size as Audi’s A5 and is bound to have a useful spacious boot. The images show only two seats but the final design is likely to have four.

Similar to the XK’s, the new C-Type’s chassis will be an aluminum monocoque with extruded body panels. This has an arrangement that may be lightweight but is highly strong and stiff, improving handling response. Powering the car is Jaguar’s latest 5.0-litre V8, producing 380bhp. Other possibilities include a twin-turbo diesel and an R version powered by the company’s supercharged 500bhp V8.

Lumma Design CLR 730 RS based on Bmw M5

LUMMA Design in cooperation with G-Power took a BMW M5 model and turned it into a “unique, extreme, and spectacular” super sports limousine. The LUMMA Design CLR 730 RS is clearly associated with racing and is riveting with its stylish exterior and awe-inspiring performance. The car is able to produce 730 hp and 700 Nm of torque from its G-Power’s V10 bi-compressor engine.

Aerodynamics play a huge role in the car’s capability of getting a top speed of 367,4 km/h and of going from 0 to 100 km/h sprint in only 4.2 seconds. The LUMMA CLR 730 RS has a wide bodykit that consists of ultra light compact carbon components, including a hood, a trunk lid with integrated tearing edge, mirror caps, door handles, entrance strips and fenders.

The car has a special sport suspension that lowers the vehicle 45 mm closer to the ground and allows multiple adjustments on both axles. A set of three-piece LUMMA Racing rims in 10×21” with tires size 255/30-21 on the front, and 12Jx21 with tires size 295/25-21 on the rear axle make the car more agile as well add to its style.

In addition, the car is equipped with a stainless steel LUMMA sport exhaust system with 100 cells racing catalysts and 105 mm end pipes, and a 405 mm (380 mm), 6-pistons (rear axle 4-pistons) brake system. Pure racing style is the theme for the interior. The upgraded cockpit features a bicolor complete leather interior in red/white, carbon beautified elements and Ultra suede improvements.

Jaguar announces the launch of its R Performance Academy

Lucky buyers of a 2010 Jaguar XKR or XFR will get the chance to drive the fastest Jaguars at a race track with a topnotch driving instructor. The R Performance Academy was launched earlier in the week and will begin December 1, with a session at the Homestead Miami Speedway.

The circuit stretches 2.21 miles and features 14 turns to challenge to even the most experienced racers. A full day of driving is in store for the participants who will get to experience multiple types of driving, from maximum acceleration to braking to emergency lane changes. There is a special autocross event and there are lessons for driving without stability and traction control to those who dare.

The academy is intended to help drivers explore the capabilities of these special automobiles and to develop the skills and techniques needed to safely experience their high-performance dynamics. Both the XFR and XKR are powered by a supercharged V-8 engine generating 510 horsepower. The XFR is capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds while the XKR can do so in 4.6 seconds. After the initial Homestead Miami Speedway session, the Jaguar R Performance Academy will then be hosting events at a quarterly basis at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Monticello Motor Club in Monticello, New York and the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California, among others.

Audi R8 Wins World Performance Car of the Year

Audi R8 Interior

Audi is beginning to fairly dominate the World Car of the Year Awards. The Ingolstadt automaker has just won itself two major awards at the international competition; World Performance Car and Car Design of the Year.
It is now two years in a row that Audi has bagged these two awards; last year it was the RS 4 and TT respectively that got the final nod.

Just to cement its place the R8 was pitted against sibling A5 as well as the Mazda2, winner of the overall WCOTY Award for 2008.The R8 has left each person lucky enough to get their grubby paws on it in sheer awe of its talents as a performer that not only delivers oozes of raw, edgy tyre-shredding Newtons on the road, but also as a well-balanced everyday car that almost goes anywhere where roads are paved. We know that a car from the same extended family (no names need mentioning) has owned this label since before forever, yet now R8 is going with it freely…Using the same 4.2-litre V8, 420 bhp/309kW power unit found inside the RS 4, the R8 is said to force its way into the 100km/h mark from zero in a straight 4.7 seconds. And thanks to Quattro, even folks in Iceland and Alaska can drive one.

2010 Toyota MR2 Sports Hybrid Concept

Toyota MR2 Sports Hybrid Concept

Toyota MR2 Sports Hybrid Concept

Toyota has unveiled a new concept based on the third generation MR2 named the MR-S (ZZW30). Although the MR2 finished up in Japan in 2007, Toyota and its partners at Gazoo decided to bring back the MR-S by fitting a 3.3-litre V6 where the old 1.8-liter four-cylinder used to live and an electric motor mated to Toyota's THSII hybrid system for the front wheels. This makes the MR2 Sports Hybrid Concept all-wheel drive, and between the two powerplants, it puts out about 295kW through a CVT gearbox.

The Best Cars Of 2010

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the best car in the upper executive segment, while the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is the best sports car. These are the results of a reader survey conducted by one of Germany’s well-known specialist car magazines, “auto motor und sport”. The E-Class and SLS have therefore both walked away with the title “Best car of 2010″.

The editorial team of “auto motor und sport” asked readers to vote on some 326 vehicles across ten categories, and no fewer than 96,784 respondents answered the call to cast their votes in the traditional reader survey to find the best cars of the year. This is the thirty-fourth time that the respected specialist publication has conducted the survey.

In the upper executive segment, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class emerged victorious against the competition to claim its crown as “The best car of 2010″. In awarding this honour, the readers acknowledged the special position enjoyed by the E-Class as the most successful business saloon. Among its many features, it benefits from a dynamic design, innovative technology, exemplary comfort, and also a high degree of economic efficiency. It also comes with a unique combination of driver assistance systems, including for example ATTENTION ASSIST drowsiness detection, Adaptive Highbeam Assist, and DISTRONIC PLUS proximity control together with PRE-SAFE Brake, which automatically applies emergency braking if there is an acute risk of an accident.

In the case of the sports car, the readers of “auto motor und sport” placed the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in pole position, thereby honouring the new gullwing model as the best car of 2010 in its category, and as such paying tribute to both its uniquely exciting design as well its advanced technology. The super sports car excels with its uncompromising lightweight construction, superior driving dynamics and exemplary safety. These attributes are ensured by a unique technology package consisting of a lightweight aluminium spaceframe body, AMG 6.3-litre V8 front-mid-engine with dry sump lubrication producing 420 kW (571 hp), seven-speed double-declutch transmission in a transaxle arrangement and a sports suspension with aluminium double wishbones. This combination guarantees dynamic performance at the very highest level. The gullwing model accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, and has a top speed of 317 km/h.

The Campaign for The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

Mercedes-Benz is completely redefining the speed, driving dynamics and design of the super sports car. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG accelerates from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. Constructed primarily from aluminium, it tips the scales at just 1620 kilograms, which equates to 2.84 kilograms per hp – an absolute peak value in the super sports car segment, guaranteeing driving dynamics in a class of their own.

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Wallpaper

With its gullwing doors, long bonnet and an instrument panel which is reminiscent of an aircraft cockpit, it embodies a powerful and passionate sportiness, coupled with exceptional elegance. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is an invitation to “take off” with all of the senses. This desire for a completely new driving sensation is also a highlight of the integrated marketing campaign which was launched at the vehicle’s world premiere in September at the International Motor Show (IAA), and is gradually building up to its market introduction in the first quarter of 2010.

The Detroit Showcar Audi E-TRON

Audi is showing an uncompromising purist compact sports car with all-electric drive at the first major auto show of 2010. The Detroit showcar Audi e-tron is the name of this 3.93 meter (154.72 in) long and 1.78 meter (70.08 in) wide but just 1.22 meter (48.03 in) tall two-seater; just a few months after the debut of the Audi e-tron at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, this is now the second electric concept vehicle from the brand with the four rings.





ABT AUDI Q7 3.0 TDI Clean Diesel


In the ABT Sportsline version the engine becomes even more sporty and dynamic – without, of course, losing its economical and ecological qualities. The Clean Diesel still remains as economic as before its power upgrade in Bavaria. Thanks to ABT POWER, however, its performance is increased from the standard 240 HP (177 kW) to 278 HP (204 kW). At the same time the torque is increased to 580 Nm (standard: 550 Nm) and the diesel engine can meet all demands and always provides sufficient reserves of power. At the world’s largest tuner of vehicles from the VW Group, SUV now also stands for “Sporty Und Versatile”. With the ABT Q7 3.0 TDI Clean Diesel the “S” also stands for “saving”.



It goes without saying that ABT Sportsline also has ABT Performance Springs and ABT Sports brake systems available for this efficient and effective version of the Q7. With these components, which are calibrated to this extraordinary vehicle, safety in everyday traffic is increased. An extensive optical package is also available for the sporty and economical luxury car, which comprises side rails, rear aprons, fender extensions, 4-pipe exhaust units and exhaust tailpipe end caps. The Allgäu company recommend the dynamic BR alloys in 9×20 and 10×22 inch with it. ABT of course also offers full wheel sets with high performance tyres. All components, parts and of course the performance increases meet the highest demands on processing quality, reliability and durability – anyone who drives an ABT Q7 does not have to make any comprises.

New Opel Corsa Color Race Sprints With Checkered Flag War Painting

To keep its performance as exhilarating as its exterior, the Corsa Color Race boast significant chassis and steering improvements that start in the full Corsa range with the Model Year 10.5 and that improve comfort, handling and steering and keep the Corsa fun to drive.

New Opel Corsa

The Corsa Color Race can be powered by a range of new engines that are at the same time powerful and fuel efficient – like the new 1.4 gasoline engine with 64 kW87 hp (only 5.3 l/100 km for the wide range version; 5.5 l/100 km when equipped with the close range gearbox) or 74kW100 hp (which only requires 5.5 l/100 km). The powerful 96 kW/130 hp 1.7 CDTI combines 300 Nm torque with a fuel consumption of 4.5 liter/100 km. All in all, the re-worked powertrains – the latest example of Opel’s pledge to focus on environmentally compatible solutions – offer higher torque while boasting up to 13 percent lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

New Opel Corsa

The Color Race line fits the 3-door models particularly well, with its sporty contour and exciting, coupéish design. It comes with a standard black hood as well as side and tailgate appliqués with a checkered flag motif, black painted roof and black 17-inch alloy wheels. These racing accents coupled with the yellow, white, or red exterior lacquer turn every model into a winning combination. Especially in yellow, this bi-color look is reminiscent of such legendary sporty Opel models as the Rallye Kadett B Sprint from the early 70s.

The Color Race interior features special matching color highlights, like special seat stitching and vent bezels, a Panorama sunroof and a leather-clad steering wheel.

The Opel Corsa Color Race is also available with innovative technologies like halogen AFL curve and cornering lights and heated steering wheel.

Porsche 911 GT3 R

The 911 GT3 R will be raced in series based on the international FIA GT3 regulations, thus succeeding the 911 GT3 Cup S. The main focus in developing this new model was on even better drivability and even easier handling.

Porsche 911 GT3 RPorsche 911 GT3 R

The 911 GT3 R is powered by a four-litre six-cylinder boxer engine delivering maximum output of 480 bhp (353 kW) transmitted to the rear axle by a sequential six-speed dog gearbox.

The starting point in developing the 911 GT3 R weighing just 1,200 kg or 2,646 lb was the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup presented in September for one-make cup racing. Thanks to its increase in engine size by 0.2 litres, the GT3 R offers 30 bhp more than the Cup model. Both cars are based on the extra-wide body of the 911 GT3 RS street-legal sports car.

Porsche 911 GT3 RPorsche 911 GT3 R

An anti-lock brake system (ABS), traction control and an e-gas with “throttle-blip” function make it much easier to get used to this new GT3 racing car than its predecessor, meaning that the new model is also more appropriate for the ambitious amateur racing driver.

Flared wheel arches added on to the body both front and rear bear clear testimony to the wider track than on the former model. And like all second-generation versions of the 911, the new 911 GT3 R also comes with striking LED rear light clusters.

The Porsche 911 GT3 R is making its world debut on 14 January 2010 at the Birmingham Motor Show. The car is built by Porsche’s Motorsport Department at the Weissach Development Centre and will be delivered to Customer Teams the world over as of spring 2010. The base price of the Porsche 911 GT3 R is 279,000 euros plus local sales tax/VAT.
