Modern BMW Z3 M Coupe looking classier than ever

We may remember the BMW Z3 M Coupe from 1998, but if you never got your hands on one, it will probably just stay as a memory for you - a memory you hope would come to life again. The coupe came in a powerful 3.2 liter engine, technology that was pretty advanced for its time, and a quirky design - a classic indeed. The sad part is that the Bavarian company only built 6,000 examples of the M Coupe and it was discontinued in 2002.

It truly is an icon, being in the market for only four years, the M Coupe got a number of recognitions from different people and companies from Automobile Magazine’s “Design of the Year” award, Car and Driver’s “Ten Best”, to Richard Hammond’s list of “Icons” on Top Gear - quite impressive for a car that was only around for a few years, and up until today, people remember it. So now, imagine if the M Coupe was never discontinued. How would a present-day M Coupe look, and what features will it give?

If you have asked yourself the same question before, then you are not alone. This Finnish artist, Esa Mustonen created a rendering of a modern interpretation of the iconic Z3 M Coupe, and all I can say is that is looks pretty impressive. His take on the classic coupe combines both the classic shape that we recognize from the past, as well as current BMW cues - pretty much the best of both worlds. Mustonen’s goal was to combine modern design while injecting elements from the i performance range, focusing more on the lines of the i8 and i3.

Mercedes-Benz goes zesty with its GLE Coupe OrangeArt Edition

Mercedes-Benz will release more premium edition variants of its latest models that are closely based on the same concept of the SLC RedArt and SL design Edition. The car in question is the new GLE Coupe OrangeArt Edition which offers a model-specific upgrade.

In a bid to attract more consumers, the German marque will be offering its pseudo SUV-coupe with the premium edition treatment. The new variant is offered in a couple of black shades as well as in white, gray or silver hues. But what is eye-catching is that the Coupe can be aesthetically known for its orange accents of the rim flange and front apron.

Various eye-catchers in Orange lend the coupe a sporty look, and with its striking contrast, they give the vehicle a stylish vibe. The OrangeArt Edition Coupe also flaunts 21-inch alloy wheels directly from AMG's portfolio and will be offered as standard with a black LED ring meant for the headlights. The exterior's upgrades are only up to here, sorry to burst your bubble.

Track-Ready 2018 Subaru BRZ tS is unveiled

Honda recently announced that the 2017 Civic Type R will be the first ever Civic Type R to make its way to U.S. shores, and it will be auctioned at "Bring a Trailer" site to a lucky guy for a good cause. Well, this time Honda may have a challenger that will also make its US debut soon. The vehicle in question is the 2018 Subaru BRZ tS, the US-spec version of which was officially revealed on June 8.

If you are an avid follower of Subaru Technica International, also commonly known as STI, you’ve probably been following news about this awe-inspiring model. The new WRX STI Type RA, as well as the U.S.-spec variant of the Subaru BRZ tS, finally had their wraps off.

The most recent teaser image of the tS revealed lightweight STI wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport Tires, Brembo brakes and an upgraded aero package that comes with the hashtag #BRZts. The 2015 BRZ tS edition that was Japan-only unit model and only limited to 300 units, was released without the wing, but it was built with Bilstein suspension all around, an STI engine V Bar, carbon fiber look dash pane, Recaro bucket seats and Alcantara trimmings found throughout the cabin.

2018 BMW M4 CS shows up in Lime Rock Grey Metallic color

Here it comes, the much-awaited exclusive limited-run special-edition model of the new BMW M4. Filling the gap between the M4 Coupe with Competition Package and the track-focused BMW M4 GTS, the new 2018 BMW M4 CS is the latest of its successful M special editions.

This limited edition M4 model is powered by a 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line engine, which thanks to the M TwinPower Turbo technology, could deliver 338 kW (460 hp) of max output at 6,250 rpm and 600 Nm (442 lb.-ft.) of peak torque available between 4,000 rpm and 5,380 rpm. Compared to the BMW M4 with Competition Package, the new M4 CS delivers more power with its additional 10 hp of output and 50 Nm (37 lb.-ft.) of torque.

With this level of power on hand, the new 2018 BMW M4 CS could dash from zero to 100 km/h (0 to 62 mph) in just 3.9 seconds, on the way to reaching an electronically limited top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph). Power is sent to the wheels from the engine -- as standard -- through a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission (M DCT) with Drivelogic.

The guys at BMW Abu Dhabi are notoriously famous for being unconventional in all sorts of things. These guys have this quirky way of customizing a car ---whether with the choice of color they apply, the aftermarket upgrade they use, or actually nearly every aspect of the vehicle that touches their hands.

Speaking of which, BMW Abu Dhabi recently unveiled an M-Performance-equipped BMW M2 at their showroom. Other than the carbon fiber aero kit, the BMW M stripe-wearing M2 gets an Akrapovic exhaust system with Akrapovic downpipes for better sound. As it goes, everything else here will get a taste of the wild carbon fiber treatment--- starting with the trunk lid spoiler, the skirt winglets, the front spoiler, and even the rear diffuser up to the M2’s side mirror casings.

To further highlight the M Performance package, the BMW M2 wears the hardcore M Graphics with black M wheels. This complements not only the kidney grille’s gloss finish but also the black accents along the exterior.

Behold, the Rolls-Royce Sweptail! The Sweptail is probably the biggest two-seater car that has ever been built. It may look odd at first glance, and you may not be fond of its design, especially the front end of the car, but it’s true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This specific model was exclusively built for a “Rolls-Royce connoisseur” so it you aren’t one, then this car won’t probably be attractive to you.

We don’t know the identity of the person who made this car possible, but without a doubt he is powerful enough to have Rolls-Royce build him a single car with his own design in mind, and that he has at least nine zeros in his bank account. Though the company did not reveal who the individual was, we know that it is a guy because that’s what they said in the press release. He was described as a “connoisseur and collector of distinctive, one-off items including super-yachts and private aircraft”.

The buyer went up to the company and asked them to build a car that was inspired by the 1920s and 1930s Rolls-Royce, which explains the extravagant shape reminding us of a vintage Rolls-Royce Boat Tail speedster. The individual had worked with the company for years on the design of the car, turning the ride into a two-seater with a wood mid-shelf replacing the back seats that feature an illuminated glass lip. There is also a polished wood hat shelf with luggage rails covered by a teardrop-shaped glass roof, giving a bright and airy cockpit. On the front and rear ends, are polished “08” badges. We don’t know yet for sure what they signify.

BMW just keeps on getting bigger and bigger, in terms of their lineup I mean. Just after unveiling the 8 Series Concept, they are now teasing us with an M8 variant. As of now, the closest we have to the M8 variant are just camouflaged photos and a video since BMW won’t give out any information just yet.

The camouflaged variant looks similar to the 8 series in terms of design, but it comes with the signature trimming we have expected on the M’s go-fast models. Though we know that this isn’t at all close to the final production version, note that it has enlarged air intakes in the fascia, enlarged wheels with low profile tires, brake calipers finished in blue, and at the rear end are quad exhausts.

BMW M Division president, Frank van Meel, said that the upcoming BMW M8 will build on the genes of the 8 Series and feature enhanced track ability and “generous extra portions of dynamic sharpness, precision and agility”. He added that it flows into a driving experience that has the highly recognizable BMW M hallmarks” and that meets the most challenging demands of its customers.

If this design study leads to the eventual and much-awaited BMW 8 Series grand tourer, then we wouldn’t complain. After all, it looks so promising. It isn’t the final version yet, but the BMW Concept 8 Series that will be unfurled at the 2017 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy officially and formally signals the emphatic return of the BMW 8 Series Coupe after around two decades of being left in the dust.

BMW confirms that the Concept 8 Series provides a good glimpse into a new BMW 8 Series Coupe that will be introduced to the auto market in 2018 as part of the carmaker’s biggest model offensive in its history. The BMW Group was tagged the new BMW 8 Series as the centerpiece of its “NUMBER ONE > NEXT” strategy that aims to dramatically increase both sales and revenues in the auto industry’s luxury sector.

Harald Kruger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG, described the BMW 8 Series Coupe as a model that will raise the benchmark for coupes in the segment while boosting the company’s claim to leadership in the luxury class.

BMW is slated to reveal the much awaited BMW 8 Series Concept this coming weekend at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy. Not to be left out of this exciting event, Peisert Design renders its own version of the 8 Series Coupe right before its debut.

In the previous week, BMW officially released a lone teaser image showing only the silhouette of the concept. There isn’t much known about it, but the clues are enough to inspire Peisert to create its own rendition of the luxurious sports coupe.

Taking its cues from the spy shots and BMW’s official teaser photo, Peisert Design re-imagined the coupe with a long hood design, a sporty windshield with sloping roofline that extends seamlessly to the rear spoiler. The rendering also features this very distinct fenders with vents at the front while the large alloy wheels make the side profile more unique.

There is no doubt that the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 can perform. And not only can it perform, it can definitely impress a lot of car enthusiasts. But if you think the ZL1 can do a better job, you are indeed right about that. Chevrolet just announced the 1LE option package for the said model, to ensure that the muscle machine efficiently uses every bit of its 650 horsepower down to the road.

You can get the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE along with the track-focused equipment for a total of $69,995, which already includes the $995 destination fee, as soon as this summer. The 1LE option package has a price of $7,500.

The Camaro ZL1 that comes with the optional 1LE package is currently the range topper in the lineup. If you choose to get the said package, your Camaro will be given performance parts such as Multimatic’s Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve dampers - this will allow the driver adjust the ride height at the front. There is also a three-way adjustable rear stabilizer bar.

BMW 2 Series gets a serious facelift, giving it more spunk. The Bavarian company just refreshed the not-so-new model with a limited M240i M Performance Edition. And though the differences between this model and the current model are very subtle compared to the 2 Series update, there’s nothing wrong with adding a few extra features in the special edition package. In fact, updates are almost always a good thing, right?

The company suggests that this M Performance Edition is meant to “express the athletic appeal of the sport coupe even more”. And a sportier car definitely means a faster one right? So let us start off with the upgraded 3.0-liter inline six engine that can yield up to 340 horsepower that is paired to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic gearbox - adding only an extra five horsepower over the standard 335 horsepower.

If they choose to get the xDrive all-wheel drive system, they won’t have a choice but get the automatic. Though the company promises that whichever one you get, the 2 Series will get you to 60 miles per hour in a little over four seconds.

BMW had just launched the 2018 2-Series Coupe and Cabrio Facelift and M2 Facelift, now with subtle changes both in and outside. Seems like the 2 Series is following the footsteps of its bigger brother, the newly refreshed 4 Series.

One of the most noticeable changes would be the new bi-LED headlights, that now come standard across the range. The new headlights and clusters were designed in a hexagon-like “angel eyes” shape that replaces the rounder layout of the previous models. Customers also have an option to go for an adaptive full-LED setup for an additional cost.

The pair of kidney grilles are now larger, as well as the air intakes for a more aggressive face. Though the rear end looks untouched, BMW says that the standard taillights got a nip and tuck. To complete the new look of the 2 Series, customers get to choose from three new colours including Sunset Orange, Seaside Blue, and Mediterranean Blue. Plus there are four sets of alloy wheels that they can choose from - two sets of 17-inch wheels while the other two measure 18-inches.

Honda just released the new and affordable 2017 Civic Si, available as a coupe or a sedan. The best part is that it is already out in the market since May 13, and Honda just announced it a day before it went on sale.

We do know that coupes usually cost more than sedans, but for the Civic Si, that is not the case. Both models have a price tag of $24,775 for the base version, inclusive of the $875 destination fee. And if customers opt for performance tires, that will be a total of $24,975. Still very affordable, I would say.

Though it may not be as powerful as its main competitors, the Civic Si is still a very good choice, perhaps for first-time car owners. Either the sedan or the coupe will come with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder producing 205 horsepower (153 kilowatts) and 192 pound-feet (260 Newton-metres) of torque. The front wheel drive is paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, and there is a limited-slip differential to maximize traction.

The Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe isn’t your ordinary two-door car. Aside from its dynamic yet elegant looks, the AMG C63 Coupe is also a menace in terms of performance – worthy of the AMG branding. This is why the AMG C63 Coupe is a favorite among auto tuners. Now, German tuning specialist Prior Design has made the AMG C63 Coupe more potent, thanks to its new aero body kit.

Compared to an ordinary Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the AMG C63 Coupe was designed as a true performer, with an aggressive appearance to match. In fact, the AMG C63 Coupe shares no body panel with a regular C-Class, except for the roof panel. Featuring an already low and wide stance, large air intakes and aggressively flared wheel arches, AMG C63 Coupe is a luxury car that should earn your utmost attention on the road. However, Prior Design believes that what AMG has done isn’t enough, so it has come up with an aero kit that should make the AMG C63 Coupe look meaner.

Dubbed as the PD65CC Widebody Aerodynamic Kit (W205), this package greatly enhances not only the sporty looks of the AMG C63 Coupe, but also improves the luxury performance car’s aerodynamic capabilities. The PD65CC WB aero kit includes a C-Class-specific front bumper as well as front spoiler or splitter. This front bumper features modified and larger air intakes. The aero kit also includes a new bonnet that lends the AMG C63 Coupe a sportier look, even meaner than the C63 Black Series.

The Gran Lusso Coupe Concept that BMW introduced to us at the 2013 Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Estate made us think that maybe the 8 Series will make a comeback, but the company never mentioned it to us. However, at this year’s show, they are introducing a concept they call the 8 Series Coupe, which sounds pretty straightforward. And Harald Krüger, BMW chairman had just confirmed that it is slated for arrival in 2018. So now, it seems that the upcoming 8 Series is coming close to production, as it will be fully revealed on May 26.

As of now, we will have to deal with a teaser image of the concept. Though the image does not give us plenty of details, it shows an outlined silhouette of the 8 Series’ side profile - it seems like the model will have a raked roofline and wide rear hips that is complemented by a prominent spoiler at the trunk lid that is pointing upwards.

BMW did say in a press release that the Gran Lusso is a “design study” of a model that will soon reach its production phase. It’s also said to be headed for a 2018 release. Perhaps the Gran Lusso Coupe is an indication of how the 8 Series will look, and if the near-production concept will somewhat look like it, then it will definitely be gorgeous. Having said that, the 8 series will definitely be a more premium line over the 7 Series.

Customers like us always want to have options. In fact, the more options, the better. BMW offers a range of vehicles that can provide for everybody’s needs, from sedans, coupes, hatchbacks to convertibles. Although this is a good thing (providing more choices), there is also a downside to this. By having many options, some of your models may do really well while the others may not - especially the ones in between.

Just last month, reports say that the 4 Series Gran Coupe sedan is one of the company’s bestselling cars. Same with the 6 Series, the Gran Coupe makes up over 50 percent of BMW’s total sales, while the Cabrio comes second and the Coupe seems to be the last one that sells. So believe it or not, BMW just put a stop on the production of their 6 Series Coupe. And did you know that they have already stopped production back in February, except the information was not disclosed until now.

According to Road and Track, a BMW spokesperson confirmed that production has ended for the coupe. However, if anyone is interested in this model, it is still available to order in some markets, but not in the United States.

For its sleek yet subtle package combined with luxury and performance, the Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe is a car that needs no introduction. Fostla however thinks that there is a much better way to step out and make an entirely new statement. Something bold that is. In this regard, the German car tuner has not only covered the luxury two-door coupe in bright Matte Chrome Orange but also raised the engine output from 577hp (430kW) to 730hp (544kW).

The bright orange body wrap is a combination of metallic and matte finish that produces a certain shimmer while under the sun. To add more oomph to this eye popping color, Fostla has dressed up the AMG S63 with the Prior Design’s wide body kit while a new set of 15-spoke wheels in an anthracite finish bring out the coupe’s more menacing look.

Prior Design is notoriously known for its wide body kits which includes custom side skirts, side sills, fenders, bumpers, spoilers and so on. The new wheel set on the other hand consists of a lowering module and is also the secret to this Mercedes’ more aggressive stance.

Should Bentley come up with more variants of the Bentayga? Well, according to their CEO Wolfgang Durheimer, it seems that they should do that so they won’t get left behind by their rivals. In an interview with Autocar, Durheimer said that derivatives are important because of the urgency to be “the newest kid in town for customers”.

The British automaker has got some very exciting plans for its plans to expand its lineup. For instance, the company wants to build a quicker version of what is already out there. So what variants should we expect from Bentley? Well, they did a rendering of a coupe version so that’s likely to be on their plate. They also intend to produce a more potent GT3 R in line with the Continental that bears the same name.

But CEO Durheimer has made it clear that none of these ideas are certain yet.

After a flashy debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show last March, the Audi's second generation R5S Coupe will be available in the United Kingdom this month.

The price tag of the new 2018 AUdi R5S Coupe is £4,100 more expensive than its old model which is valued at around £58,725. It is also considered £4,500 steeper than the BMW M4, but it costs £650 less than the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe. Regarding the Dynamic Package, the price has not been finalized just yet.

The final costs of fitting a carbon roof and RS sport suspension with Dynamic Ride control has not also been decided, but may cost around £3,000 and £2,000 respectively. Audi's light and faster new release is equipped with a turbocharged 2.9 L V6 petrol engine that produces up to 444 bhp, akin to the 4.2L V8 of the previous unit. The new R5S coupe will somehow bear a brand new badge and will be sold under the Audi Sport trademark. Audi claimed that their upcoming coupe will emit 197g/km C02, which is a 17% cutback, and boasts of a fuel economy of 32.5mpg combined.

Over a year ago, Kia gave its Forte lineup a good old update, with little bits of tweaks here and there, and a bigger 2.0 liter engine, plus a new S trim. The new Kia Forte lineup, including a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback was then showcased at the Detroit Auto Show. The sleeker version of the Forte Koup was said to receive the same treatment later that year, but we never got any update from the company. Now we know why - James Hope, Kia spokesperson said to CarsDirect that the 2016 Forte Koup will not have another successor.

The reason behind this discontinuation is the fact that the company had a difficult time selling the 2016 model, and it is not aligned with customer’ purchasing trends. The Korea-based company has also stopped taking orders for the particular model. But if you’re still thinking of getting a two-door Forte Koup, hurry up and head to showrooms as they still may have a few stocks left at a discounted rate.

The Forte Koup came in two trims: the EX with the 173 horsepower 2.0 liter engine and the SX which came with the bigger 1.6 liter turbocharged engine that generates 201 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 195 pound-feet of torque from 1,750 to 4,500 rpm. Both are listed on the company’s website with prices ranging from $19,890 MSRP (for the EX) to $20,690 (for the SX), which do not include the destination and handling fees. But the good thing is that if you’re interested in these models, there is a $2,500 rebate applicable. And to sell out the remaining 2016 models, the dealers may even include an extra discount for you, who knows?
