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.Read the entire article Range topping 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE starts at $69,995
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.Read the entire article Limited-edition BMW M240i M Performance Edition is looking great
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.Read the entire article 2018 BMW 2-Series Facelift gets all-new interior and a few exciting exterior upgrades
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.Read the entire article 2017 Honda Civic Si priced from $24,775
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.Read the entire article Prior Design’s aero kit lends greater levels of aggressiveness to the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe
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.Read the entire article BMW 8-Series Coupe makes an official comeback
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.Read the entire article BMW stops production of the 6-Series Coupe 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.Read the entire article Get your daily dose of the sun with the Orange Matte 740 hp Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe by Fostla
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.Read the entire article Bentley is considering more Bentayga variants to stay competitive
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.Read the entire article 2018 Audi RS5 Coupe will be available in the UK this summer, priced from £62,900
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?Read the entire article Kia announces discontinuation of the Forte Koup
Speaking of design, just recently, Land Rover gave us a first look at the Range Rover Evoque Cabrio. It is a hybrid in the sense that it is part truck, part sport car. It is a truck that is a convertible. It has two doors, but sits four passengers. The company actually calls it a “crossover with capability”. It’s strange, but in a nice way - visually. I think this is the kind of car that people would either want or hate with a vengeance. There aren’t too many of those; that’s why this is such an interesting imagery.
Anyway, let’s move on to the core of this article. There was a computer-generated photo of a Range Rover Sport that was posted on Behance, a creative social media platform late last week. And the outcome looks really sexy. It is a two-door Range Rover Sport Coupe. Yes, you heard it right, a two-door Range Rover Sport.
But don’t get too excited for those of you who want to get one, as this is just a simple exercise by a certain Craig A Clark of Blackburn, United Kingdom. Let us give credit to Clark for rendering something really cool. Though this creation may look unrealistic or somewhat unpractical, the more you examine the images, the more you would think that “hey, it might actually work”. Well, it visually looks sweet to be honest.Read the entire article Love it or hate it: a two-door Range Rover Sport RS Coupe gets rendered
Well, this is clearly not good news for everyone. Ever since the new BMW M4 CS rolled out in Shanghai last week, several reports about its limited production have quickly surfaced. CarBuzz earlier reported that the BMW M4 CS will be limited to only 3,000 units worldwide. In line with this, the production period for the said model will be running for only two years.
According to Peter Quintus (BMW M’s Head for Marketing), they weren't actually expecting such kind of overwhelming response for the M4 GTS. For those who can recall, all 700 examples have been sold out fast in just four weeks. Quintus added they can no longer build much more than the amount that was stated. But since customers are also looking for more M model varieties to come by, this is how the M4 CS came into the picture. Also, they are looking to add a new CS to the current M Performance lineup. Judging from his statement, we strongly believe it is going to be an M2 CS no less. Of course, the marketing chief did not confirm if it is indeed a BMW M2, but it is very likely to be coming up next.
Going back to the subject, the M4 CS will be available in the showrooms by the middle of next year. Pricing for the UK market will be starting at 89,130 pounds while it will go around at 116,900 euros in Germany.Read the entire article 2018 BMW M4 CS limited to only 3,000 examples, more CS variants will follow
Chinese automaker Chery did not leave a good impression last time they were in Australia - due to its cheap design. But this year, Chery showcases its new Tiggo Sport Coupe Concept to compete against Toyota’s C-HR and the Nissan Juke in the crossover range, at the most recent Auto Shanghai. This time, the automaker gave a more sophisticated and modern design for the coupe crossover.
The Tiggo Sport Coupe was designed with LED headlights that are connected by a long strip that stretches across the front end, incorporating the logo, between the hood and the grille. Just below it is a black mesh grille that goes hand in hand with the teardrop-shaped side air intakes, giving it a sporty look. Tow hooks can also be found on the lower part of the facia. This crossover also features rear-view cameras on both sides.
Mirroring the face of the crossover, the rear also has a horizontal strip of LEDs that stretches from one side to another, again connecting the taillights. Just like the front end, the rear comes with a pair of tow hooks on its bumper and the same teardrop shaped outlets at each corner. Suicide rear doors are also present for easier access to the passenger compartment.Read the entire article Chery Tiggo Sport Coupe Concept is out to impress video game lovers
Now, it is official. The BMW M4 CS (Club Sport) is the real thing. Since BMW has already ended the production of the track-focused M4 GTS, the M4 CS – for now – is the new top-of-the-range model of the BMW 4 Series. While BMW unveiled a BMW M4 CS in Spain a year ago, this was only a project of BMW Spain, and not created by BMW M GmbH.
This Spanish version was basically a BMW M4 with the Competition Package (M4 CP) with a massive carbon fiber wing on the rear. Then in January this year, a slightly camouflaged M4 test mule was spotted. We were sure it isn’t the M4 GTS, since its production has already ended. However, this test mule is laden with features from the M4 GTS like its bonnet. It also comes with some cosmetic tweaks from the recent Life Cycle Impulse of the BMW 4 Series.
Then, an M4 CS looking similar to the test mule in Sweden was seen doing a commercial shoot in California with BMW’s factory DTM driver Augusto Farfus Jr. Apparently, this is the real M4 CS that BMW is now introducing officially to the global market.Read the entire article 2018 BMW M4 CS debuts with 460 hp and 3.9-second 0-62 mph sprint time
Schmidt Revolution is well known for coming up with excellent tunes for specific models and this time around, it displayed its take on the C63 Coupe from Mercedes-AMG.
At present, the C63 Coupe is powered by the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that is capable of 469 hp (476 PS) and peak torque at 479 lb.-ft. (650 Nm). This is where the tuner starts to work its magic. Schmidt managed to up the power to 572 hp (580 PS) and even increased the peak torque to 538 lb.-ft. (730 Nm). With these figures, it is likely to have better acceleration compared to the standard engine, the latter of which allows the C63 to go from standstill to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 4 seconds. Be aware though that this update would cost you about $2,666 (€2,499).
With the update on the engine, it means you will likely need to put in other changes like the KW thread springs, which will cost you an additional $853 (€799). Meanwhile the level 3 KW coilover suspension will need you to put out an extra $2,752 (€2,579). If that’s not enough, the special Capristo exhaust system, which comes with throttle valves, will set you back $5,334 (€4,999). So far, that amounts to above $11,000, or more than €10,000.Read the entire article Schmidt Revolution’s kit for Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe raises output to 572 hp
Mercedes-Benz loyal fans, something awesome is coming your way. With all the hype it has generated, Mercedes-AMG has decided to unveil the GLC 63 lineage, and these cars are piquing our interest the right way.
Mercedes-AMG's full line-up of dynamic crossovers has been added with 3 more variants for the incoming New York Auto Show next week, with the recent public reveal of the GLC63, GLC63 Coupe version, and the GLC63 S Coupe.

Mercedes-AMG is supposedly planning to whip out a track-honed C63 in the next two years. The C-Class as we know, usually follows a 7-year cycle before coming up with a new product. According to Car and Driver, instead of giving it the Black Series badge, the model will take on the same route as the AMG GT R or in this case, it will be labeled as the C63 R.
In the hopes of improving its racetrack credentials, the new C63 R will be made more lightweight compared to the normal C63 S model. That is, despite having already impressive performance figures under its belt. For that, Mercedes-AMG will be working even further in improving the C63 S model’s current hp and torque output from its 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine.
Together with an extensive range of aerodynamic treatments, the C63 R will feature a massive fixed rear wing to make it more capable on the tracks. Aside from the lightweight carbon fiber roof, it will have significantly wider front wings to make way for a totally new bespoke suspension setup.Read the entire article Mercedes-AMG C63 R gets rendered, seems ready to take on BMW M4 GTS
The best thing about classic restorations is that while they are basically the same original classic cars built decades ago with the same design and specs, they are essentially new and in fresh condition. In short, these restored classic cars are reborn.
Now, Jaguar Land Rover is building on the successes of the Land Rover Classic’s Reborn programs for Series I and Range Rover with its new restoration project. This time, it has something to do with Jaguar’s classic cars, specifically the Jaguar Series 1 E-Type. Jaguar Classic is introducing its First Reborn program, with the first factory-restored E-Type Reborn -- a 1965 Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe 4.2 – set to be unveiled to the global stage at the Techno Classica Essen show in Germany on April 5 to 9, 2017.
This First E-Type Reborn was a Series 1 4.2 Fixed Head Coupe – wrapped in Opalescent Gunmetal Grey – acquired by its original owner in California in May 1965. Before it was placed into storage in 1983, this Series 1 E-Type managed to record around 78,000 miles on its odometer. Now that this particular E-Type has found its way back to Jaguar, it has undergone a complete restoration.Read the entire article Jaguar Classic Reborn program is launched with unveiling of 1965 E-Type Coupe at Techno Classica show
The BMW M4 (F82) has been a favorite subject of modifications among many tuners as well as individual fans and enthusiasts. Wheels Boutique is joining this fray by implementing a couple of simple yet attention-grabbing tweaks on the BMW M4.
By itself, the BMW M4 is already good looking – solid yet dynamic. But Wheels Boutique customized the BMW M4 in a pretty straightforward manner. It wrapped the BMW M4 in a customized exterior paint finish called Silverstone Metallic II. This exterior paint finish may look like your typical shade of silver when viewed from afar or in pictures. However, when viewed closely on some particular angles, Silverstone Metallic II further accentuates not only the lines but also the curvy surfaces of the BMW M4 – thanks to its light blue hue. This is certainly true on the BMW M4’s character lines that flow down on both sides and its seemingly building front bonnet.
Of course – as its name indicates -- Wheels Boutique’s specialty is on vehicle rims. So, the main point of this customization is to show how grand Wheels Boutique’s wheel selection for the BMW M4 could be. For this particular BMW M4, Wheels Boutique decided to employ a set of HRE P101 wheels finished in matte black.Read the entire article BMW M4 gets stunning makeover from Wheels Boutique
