2018 BMW M4 CS limited to only 3,000 examples, more CS variants will follow

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.

Chery Tiggo Sport Coupe Concept is out to impress video game lovers

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.

2018 BMW M4 CS debuts with 460 hp and 3.9-second 0-62 mph sprint time

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.

Schmidt Revolution’s kit for Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe raises output to 572 hp

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.

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.

Even though the super 3 will be unveiled in the Big Apple, these fast roadsters will not be on sale to the public in the United Stated until the early part of next year.

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.

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.

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.

In a leaked image following a presentation held in China, we learned that Czech automobile manufacturer Skoda will soon unveil 2 more new SUVs in China, resulting in a four-model lineup. Of the 4 rumored vehicles, one has been revealed to the public - the seven seat Kodiaq.

The Kodiaq model will possibly receive the coupe treatment, a roofline raked to the rear end will be expected. Even though it will likely affect the Kodiaq's trunk capacity, it shouldn't be a big deal since the space inside will compensate as the SUV's interior has a large space.

Also seen on the powerpoint presentation are 2 vehicle outlines labelled "Model Q" and "Model K". There's much speculation that Model Q is foreseen to be a 2nd-generation Yeti and will be possibly built bigger to become a real to life crossover. The all new Yeti is planned to be unveiled on the latter part of the year and will likely be premiered at Frankfurt Motor Show around September and will be put on sale before this year concludes.

In the last few years, the advent of compact sedans and crossovers has become quite overwhelming. Even two of the major manufacturers that “started it all” have to admit that there is not enough space left in their lineup.

Mercedes-Benz and BMW have finally realized that their coupes and cabrios are quite too many. This made them come onto a decision to get rid of some of their models in the near future. In a separate interview with Car & Driver, both Mercedes-Benz and BMW admitted that a great deal of their convertibles and coupes are becoming endangered with newer, more in-demand body styles.

Ian Robertson, BMW’s head for Sales and Marketing, explained that though the company may still have the upcoming X7 and X2 along with a few more models, BMW has also decided that they will be removing some body styles in the coming years. The segment, he said is “rather full”.

Who would not want a matching sports car and a super bike? Oh, and a matching watch to complete the package! In celebration of BMW’s partnership with Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours, the French and Bavarian companies put together a special deal dubbed the M4 Competition Package. It is set to be offered this spring and costs a whopping €180,000 (or around $190,100). Being stylish doesn’t come cheap nowadays.

So the Competition Package comes with a special edition M4 Magny-Cours Edition. Its exterior is painted all white, accented with its signature red, blue, and black (typical M colour) stripes that run on the sides of the car. It comes with a rear wing and front lip made of carbon fiber, and the best part – a set of 20 inch multi-spoke alloy wheels (this is probably my favourite feature). Sounds very much like another outstanding lightweight car fitted with plenty of goodies. There’s everything to like about this offering.

Just like the standard BMW M4, it is provided with a 3.0 liter inline-six turbocharged engine under its hood, producing 450 horsepower (336 kilowatts) to the rear wheels. In just four seconds, it can speed up to 62 miles per hour from a standstill (0-100 kilometers per hour). But that’s only for the variant that comes equipped with the seven-speed dual clutch transmission, which is optional.

With rumors swirling that German premium carmaker BMW is working hard to reincarnate the 8 Series -- its biggest two-door ever made – it can’t be helped that another resurrection related to the 8 Series is now being speculated.

We are referring to the long-dead M8 which BMW never really produced and which was only seen as a single prototype. BMW originally intended the BMW M8 to be a rival for Ferrari’s sports cars. To that end, BMW developed a special version of the S70 engine – which is in turn a bored out version of the M70 powerplant -- and made it so that it could generate at most 550 hp (410 kW or 558 PS).

Incidentally, the M8 was born in 1990, although in pre-production form. But since BMW realized that a market doesn’t exist for the M8, it decided to drop the project indefinitely. By the time the M8 project was thrown to the trash bin, BMW has only created one prototype, which according to reports, wasn’t even safe enough to be driven on the roads. It doesn’t even have headlights! This M8 prototype was eventually locked away in BMW’s so-called poison storage (Giftschrank).

BMW’s latest Grand Tourer variant can finally stand beside Porsche’s range topping Panamera Turbo S, the A7 (Audi’s grand touring luxury sedan) or even a Mercedes-Benz S Class coupe. BMW last week has announced the release of the M Sport Limited Edition. According to the company, the enhancement package will be offered on the 6 Series Gran Coupe, the 6 Series Convertible as well as the 6 Series Coupe.

Other than the existing M badge and aero kits, there are several new optional features that have been made available exclusively for BMW’s 6 Series. Among its exterior upgrades are the new carbon fiber side mirror casings, 20-inch M light alloy wheels with two-color paint scheme, and the latest Sonic Speed Blue Metallic paint.

The M Sport Limited Edition 6 Series interior meanwhile consists of fine-grain Merino leather for the seats courtesy of BMW Individual, the Bavarian automaker’s bespoke division. The seat upholstery will come in two-tone combination of fjord blue and black leather that is only exclusive to the M package.

To the delight of many premium customers wanting to squeeze more performance from their Audi models, the German luxury carmaker recently took the wraps off the new Audi RS 5 Coupe at the 2017 International Geneva Motor Show. Sitting beside the new coupe is the premium brand’s latest Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters challenger – the new Audi RS 5 DTM – and it is ready to rumble for the 2017 season.

Created by Audi Sport, the Audi RS 5 DTM is derived from the Audi RS 5 Coupé that was unveiled simultaneously at the Geneva Motor Show. Audi Motorsport chief Dieter Gass remarked that this marks the first time that a new DTM car was created in parallel with the production model, thereby highlighting the link between production and motorsport at Audi. He added that in developing the new RS 5 DTM, Audi used the previous-generation model as benchmark considering that it was the most successful DTM car in the past two seasons.

Aside from donning the new RS design language, the third-generation Audi RS 5 DTM has received various tweaks to make it compliant with DTM regulations. Several of these tweaks can be seen from the outside, as the new Audi RS 5 DTM is visually distinct from its predecessors. Aside from featuring a more progressive design, the new Audi RS 5 DTM offers more aerodynamic innovations.

Following its global debut at the 2017 North American International Auto Show (2017 Detroit Auto Show) in January and its European unveiling at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show this month, the new Mercedes-Benz is now finally available to order, at least in its home market Germany. In fact, interested clients could now go Mercedes’ Web site and configure their own E Class according to their tastes and preferences.

As to how much the new Mercedes-Benz E Class Coupe would cost, the German premium carmaker has already provided a cheat list on the starting prices on each of the four models available at launch: the E200, the E220d, the E300, and the E400 4Matic. For those who have made their orders, they could expect to take deliveries of the latest iteration of the E Class Coupe as early as spring 2017.

The entry-level E200 derives its power from a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that could deliver up to 184 hp (135 kW) of output and up to 221 lb.-ft. (300 Nm) of torque. This amount of power is enough to send the Mercedes E200 Coupe sprinting from nil to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds and achieving a top speed of 240 km/h. The Mercedes E200 Coupe is available in Germany at a starting price of EUR49,051.80 (including VAT).

Chevrolet has long been known to set new standards in terms of performance every time it releases a new model. The brand has once again shown this to be true with the track-capable Camaro model, the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE.

Already recognized to be tuned for the tracks, the 1LE blueprint was not simply utilized by Chevrolet for this new model. In fact, prepare to be amazed with its new levels of performance and sophistication.

Aside from having been given aerodynamic technologies, it has been fitted with a suspension that is clearly based on racing. Those who want to take to an even higher level can opt to have the extreme track performance package which includes, among others, the exclusive Supercar 3R Eagle F1 summer-only tires from Goodyear.

The 1930s is a period in automobile history wherein elegance and extravagance were the norm. With this in mind, Eadon Green unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show its homage to this classic year with the Black Cuillin Vision Model.

Indeed, the design is more than apt for the period especially with how the front clip has a rounded form and has those arching fenders. It even has the long hood much like what the cars of that period had. Looking on the inside, there are a number of details in leather, wood trim, and chrome. While Eadon Green did not release any official information on the features, the images and the unit on display show that there are buttons for the menus and modes and there is even a navigation function. This means that the features may be similar to what other brands release as limited-production luxury versions.

There is also no word yet on the performance. All we know really is that it will be fitted with a V12 engine. This is only known though because images show a V12 carrying the Eadon Green badge. However since the engine is shown to be placed along the length of the hood, there is the possibility that the Black Cuillin could have a rear-wheel drive. Eadon Green though did reveal that the powertrain and chassis would have a more contemporary feel to it which means the transmission could be an automatic type and it will likely include a paddle-shift. Given that this is still a concept, there is no assurance from the company yet on whether a production version is in the works.

RUF Automobile GmbH officially unveiled during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show its latest CTR halo model. This model is distinct for two reasons. First is that it comes in a body that honors the 1987 CTR “Yellow Bird.” The second reason is that it utilizes a chassis based on the company’s very own design.

Already in the fourth generation, the 2017 RUF CTR is indeed similar to the model that it pays tribute to not only in form but even in function. Making it a true masterpiece is the new engine with a weight-to-power ratio of 3.5 pounds for every horsepower. Further, it is the first rear-wheel drive with a customized carbon fiber monocoque chassis.

Indeed, the main defining characteristic of the 2017 CTR is the chassis though one can argue that the technological superiority of this model begins at the skin, which is made up completely of carbon fiber. This is the same material the chassis is composed of and comes in the patented RUF design. In addition, both crash structures in the front and the rear are composed of lightweight steel much like the roll cage that was integrated to it.

It’s a GT among the RS models, says Stephen Winkelmann, CEO of Audi Sport. This all-new 2018 Audi RS5 Coupe graces the market with its 450 horsepower (336 kilowatts) 2.9 liter biturbo engine and a 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) torque, which is 125.4 lb-ft (170 Nm) higher than before. This engine has powered the Porsche Panamera 4S.

Launching together with the RS5 DTM at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the RS5 Coupe carries an overall weight reduction of up to 60 kilograms which gives it the capability to accelerate from zero to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in a span of 3.9 seconds, making it comparable to the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV. With the optional dynamic package, the new motor has a top speed of 174 mph (280 kph).

According to Winkelmann, the new Audi RS5 Coupe is the “gran turismo” among the RS models from the Audi Sport. He emphasizes that the high-performance Coupe combines elegant aesthetics with high everyday usability and that its V6 biturbo significantly provides more performance and higher efficiency.

How much a Fiat would sell at an auction may be something you’ve always wondered about. Well, during an auction held at Villa Erba back in 2015, a 1953 8V Cabriolet that was designed by none other than Vignale fetched a total $1.18 million (€1,120,000).

This amount though could be beaten as on the upcoming Amelia Island sale by RM Sotheby, it has been revealed that a 1953 Fiat 8V Supersonic will be up for bidding. Considered by many as both more beautiful and even rarer than the one that was bid out in 2015, it may well become the most expensive Fiat sold. Given its pristine condition and the fact that it has no reserve, experts say it could go from a low of $1.6 million to a high of $1.9 million.

Designed Carrozzeria Ghia of Torino, only 15 units had the "Supersonic" styling cues. For the one that will be up for auction, it was first put on display during the Geneva Motor Show back in 1954. When it first came out of the factory in 1953, it had 000049 for its chassis number and 000085 for the engine number.
