Toyota shows off this sexy silhouette as teaser of Supra’s arrival at 2018 Geneva Motor Show

Toyota recently published a teaser with the title “The Legend Returns.” It’s not a secret as we already know that they are referring to none other than the Toyota Supra. For the longest time, Toyota enthusiasts anticipated the time that they will see the Supra, and finally, the automaker announced on social media, their media website and to email boxes around the world that it will arrive at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, describing it as a “modern racing concept” that they will bring back to the market.

Here is the thing, the automaker did not actually say which car it would be as they did not mention any names. In fact, it could be a new 2000GT. However, no matter how cool this vintage car is, it still is not considered to be as iconic as the Supra, which is why we doubt that it is the one being teased.

Also, another thing we are aware of is Toyota’s new project with BMW, the new sports car they are currently working on, that shares its underpinnings among both brands. We have actually seen this car, the next Z4 (the BMW version), a few times in prototype format, and we have seen both models being tested together. Also, we have already heard rumours from before that Toyota might unveil the new Supra in Geneva - and this is finally it, at least we think it is.

Mercedes-Benz gives us another teaser of the four-door GT Coupe ahead of its Geneva debut

After weeks or months of speculating about the name of the new Mercedes-Benz performance sedan, it’s finally revealed. The four door vehicle that will make its premiere at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month is the Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe. Even as the teaser images show the model in camouflage, these are still much clearer than previous ones.

At the same time that the company released this statement, it also published three photos of the four-door. Like I said earlier, the sedan’s appearance is camouflaged like that of earlier test mules. Nevertheless, we can make out several of its features.

The Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe got most of its design elements from the 2017 Mercedes AMG Concept that we saw last year wearing a metallic red coat. Both vehicles have the similar wide grille and vertical slats with a trio of large inlets in the front fascia. There is also a steep A pillar that leads back to a flowing roof and rounded tail. In the rear, there is an active spoiler that can deploy from the back. Overall, its design makes it look both sporty and sleek.

VATH-tuned Mercedes-AMG C63 V63RS delivers 690 hp

Today, the most powerful Mercedes-Benz model you could get is probably the twelve-cylinder S65 and Maybach S650 – as both models have an output of 621 horsepower. However, VATH decided that they would produce something beefier than that, as they took both the coupe and cabriolet versions of the C63 and worked on their 4.0 liter biturbo V8 engine so they could give out a lot more power.

After VATH worked its magic on the C63’s AMG engine, it no longer gives out just 503 horsepower in the S specification. Instead, the V8 engine can now produce as much as 690 horsepower. This V63RS package, which includes the 187 horsepower boost, will cost you right around €12,800 (or $15,900), and that does not include value added tax yet. The upgraded engine is paired to a seven speed automatic transmission. Other upgrades include a new turbocharger setup and downpipe, together with an uprated oil cooler for the engine.

It isn’t just the horsepower that gets a boost, but of course, the torque as well. Before it has been modified, the C63’s standard was 516 pound feet (700 Newton metres), and now, it has as much as 664 pound feet (900 Newton metres) of torque.

Ultra-rare 2006 Fisker Latigo based on BMW M6 is for sale

Former Aston Martin designer turned entrepreneur, Henrik Fisker, is known for designing models like the Aston Martin DB9, the BMW Z8, the Fisker Karma or Karma Revero, and the newest one out there, which is the Fisker EMotion. But there is another model here that you probably did not even know of - the 2006 Fisker Latigo.

Fisker only built one example of this model, making it the very first and last production model. And it is now up for grabs on the website Bring a Trailer. To get this rare model brand new, it would have cost about $216,000; but currently, its value has gone down a bit and bidding is now set at about $37,500.

Fisker’s original plan was to build 150 units of the Latigo. But after they developed the prototype and built the first production model, the project was halted. One of the reasons for this was the rising of oil prices. This coachbuilt Fisker sits on the same platform as the 2006 BMW M6, while featuring a rebuilt 5.0 liter V10 tuned by RD Sport, which is paired to a seven speed sequential manual transmission. With that engine, this model can produce 665 horsepower (495 kilowatts).

At Scottsdale, Arizona, the first 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 with VIN 001 was sold at the Barrett-Jackson  auction for an impressive amount of $925,000. Every single cent that the automaker got from this auction will be going to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, specifically to its Building for America’s Bravest Program.

This foundation was established when the Siller family lost Stephen Siller, on September 11, 2011. He was a firefighter in New York City. This program’s goal is to build smart homes for service members that have been terribly injured and are returning home, as well as first responders. These homes are not only efficient, automated, and easily accessible, but they can also be personalized to the individual’s needs.

As mentioned earlier, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is the very first example produced and auctioned. Under its hood is a 6.2 liter LT5 V8 engine that has an output of as much as 755 horsepower (563 kilowatts) and 715 pound feet (969 Newton metres) of torque. The winning bidder can choose whether to get a coupe version or a convertible. The new owner also gets to decide if this will be paired to a seven speed manual transmission with active rev matching or the eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission.

Scott Keogh, President of Audi of America, said in his interview with Roadshow that the United States market will again be able to get their hands on a RS5 Sportback that will soon join the RS5 Coupe. It took a while for the automaker to mention the existence of a range-topping variant of the stylish four door. Information on its availability in different regions has also not been divulged yet.

But that is not all. In fact, Keogh mentioned that they have another surprise that they are working on, though he stopped himself from saying further and did not reveal what it was. Instead, he teased us by saying that there is a cool European model that they have not brought in to the United States just yet, and that he considers it to be his number one car, and they perhaps they will get it. But to date, he did not confirm any of these reports.

If you analyze what Keogh said even further, there are a number of possibilities for this. Keogh could be referring to an RS4 Avant, depending on the timeframe he has in mind. That is because the said model is already ready right now and that it only needs an executive to sign off so it could already be added to the US lineup. The only problem here is that it might take 25 more years for this model to become eligible for US import.

We are aware that Land Rover is currently working on a two-door Range Rover, and it was just recently that the first official teaser of the new Range Rover SV Coupe came out. This includes images of the high end SUV’s luxurious cabin. And before you ask, the latest model will make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March.

With the images we saw online, we could already tell that the Range Rover SV Coupe would be a highly pleasant vehicle to ride in. Up front, the seats are covered in quite, diamond quilted leather, with the same materials covering the dashboard. And in the rear, the same chairs are covered in a dark navy blue shade instead, giving it contrast, and at the same time, a luxurious feel. The center console has a wood trim that stretches to the entire length of the cabin, and this is paired with metallic trim that gives it a high-end appearance and feel.

It seems like the infotainment system will get the design of the Range Rover Velar. There is also a dial on the center console that probably controls off-road settings in the Range Rover, suggesting that it will have the ability to drive on different surfaces.

McLaren will be offering customers of its Sports Series models more choices when it comes to customizations. The automaker has also upgraded its range of options. Undoubtedly, customers are sure to adore the performance-oriented Sport Pack in the 570GT model as it has many of the advantages offered by the 570S.

Compared to the standard version, the Sport Pack makes the front stiffer by 15% and the rear by 10%. Steering was enhanced as well as it has been made quicker by 2%. In addition to the quicker steering rack and the stiffer springs, the Sport Pack also comes with new damper software and improved stability control settings. Unlike the standard model, the carbon ceramic brakes are now fitted as standard rather than offered as an option. Further instead of the typical P Zeros tires, it will now have the hybrid track/road Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. However the electrochromic tinted roof is an option.

Those who want the Sport Pack will need to shell out around $6,600 (£4,900). Even then, McLaren estimates that 60% of the current 570GT customers are likely to avail of the Sport Pack.

If you are looking for an awesome car, look no further than the BMW M4. But if you want something more exclusive than that, then you can opt for the Alpina-tuned 4 Series as this will definitely turn heads wherever you go.

Alpina has prepared a kit that isn’t just about the car’s looks as its performance will also be given a boost albeit, not by much. It gets a raise of 9 PS (9 horsepower) and 56 Newton metres (41 pound feet) of torque. The Alpina B4 S Bi Turbo carries out a little more power than the stock M4, thanks to its straight-six 3.0 liter engine. That may not sound a lot, but overall, that totals to an impressive number of 440 PS (434 HP) and 660 Nm (487 pound-feet) of torque in a wide speed range from 5,500 to 6,250 rpm.

For those of you who are interested in this Alpina tuned 4 Series, the white model is on display at BMW Abu Dhabi dealership. The special body kit comes with a custom front splitter, side skirts, and boot lid spoiler. It also has multi-spoke alloys and blue calipers, plus decals from the tuner.

Being able to afford a Rolls-Royce means that you have made it to the top of the chain so you probably don’t want to be subtle about it. You’d likely want one that’s painted in a bright, flashy colour. In this case, this RR Wraith that’s painted by the guys from Goodwood in a unique shade of Java Green is perfect for you. This eye-catching hue isn’t new. In fact, its parent company BMW has been offering this colour for quite some time now.

But then, this color is frequently seen on supercars, not so much on this luxurious coupe. So for this colour to appear on the Wraith is a bit of an oddity. But why not paint a rare car in a colour that you don’t normally see on it, right? It just makes it even more special, in our humble opinion.

When looking at this example with the dark theme applied onto the Spirit of Ecstasy figurine, it actually makes us think that we are dealing with the Black Badge edition that features a couple of black styling accents on the exterior. However, Rolls Royce denied this and said that it is not just an ordinary black shade because the hue was made even more intense than a normal black colour. This was also done after giving the paint multiple layers.

When Lexus first launched the production version of the LC coupe, it surprised many because it had a strong resemblance with the LF-LC concept that many loved as seen back during the 2012 NAIAS.

Now, the LC coupe has an interesting body design, and it really is not the easiest model to modify, but Liberty Walk decided to do so anyway. And voila, customers can now get this body kit, which is available for both the LC500 as well as the LC500h. They also have two choices when getting the package, the FRP and the CFRP that costs from $13,380 to $19,440 outside of Japan.

So you are probably wondering what you would get with the Liberty Walk package. Well, that includes the Japanese tuner’s massive bolt-on fenders that are now actually considered to be the company’s signature. But that’s not all you will get of course, as this also comes with a front lip, side skirt add-ons, a boot lid-mounted wing, and a more aggressive rear diffuser.

This year, there are a handful of new models as well as updated versions of existing cars that are lined up to be launched. There are so many of them that we can’t keep track of all of them. But today, we will be talking about the Competition version of the BMW M2 that may be presented in April 2018 at the Beijing auto show.

Firstly, customers will be able to get the M2 competition in new colours like Hockenheim Silver and Sunset Orange, which will be added to the other available colours including Alpine White, Sapphire Black, Mineral Grey, and Long Beach Blue. The one in the photograph is dressed in the Long Beach Blue shade. We have not seen how the other colours of the cars look just yet, but it should not be too long before we see them.

According to our sources, the M2 Competition will come equipped with a detuned version of the 3.0 liter twin turbo inline six, similar to the engines of the larger models, M3 and M4, replacing the N55 3.0 liter TwinScroll six-cylinder in the outgoing M2. The new engine can give an output of 400 horsepower, which is a little more than the existing M2 with an output of 365 horsepower, but a little less than the M3 and M4 that carries out 425 horsepower. Furthermore, it will have nearly 500 Newton metres of torque - not bad at all.

As coupe-styled sports utility vehicles gain a following among customers around the world, carmakers are also racing to offer sports activity coupes (SAC), as these vehicles are called. While the Volkswagen Tiguan is currently becoming one of the best-sellers in the world, it wouldn’t be a big surprise if the German carmaker adds a coupe variant of the VW Tiguan.

Just recently, German automotive magazine Auto Bild published a report saying that VW is indeed planning to sport a coupe version of the Tiguan SUV. Auto Bild added that the VW could launch the Tiguan coupe-SUV as early as next year (2018). The magazine quipped that the German carmaker is seeing an opportunity to introduce the coupe-SUV version after it launched a now larger Tiguan, which is capable of accommodating an optional third-row seat.

The coupe-SUV version would mean that the Tiguan could now cater to more groups of potential customers. For instance, the coupe-SUV version of the Tiguan would be a great proposition to customers who don’t need the extra space offered by the now-larger SUV. These customers are willing to give up the extra room for the sake of driving a Tiguan that looks more chic and stylish. Featuring a smaller interior, the coupe-SUV variant of the VW Tiguan would also be less practical and less utilitarian. Its chic and stylish exterior would be matched by a premium-looking trim while its rear bench would be replaced by two more luxurious seats.

For a car that was just introduced in 2016, the Porsche 911 R (991 generation) is fetching a pretty high price in the resale market. Examples have changed hands for amount several times the original launch price of $184,900. In fact, a Porsche 911 R was sold by an Australian group early this year for over $900,000 (US). But now, a seller from California is selling a 911 R for half that asking price.

Ilusso, a dealer based in Costa Mesa, California, is selling a 2016 Porsche 911 R – which means it is essentially brand new -- for $409,000. This asking price is more than twice the original price of $184,900.

This particular 911 R being sold is wrapped in a jet black finish and features continuous colored stripes in dark grey over the entire mid-section. It also features a red 'Porsche' script as well as red-and-white door accents along each of its sides. It also rides on bright red 20-inch GT3 center lock wheels. Featuring a VIN (vehicle identification number) of WP0AF2A92GS195321, this 2016 Porsche 911 R only has 140 miles (225 km) on its odometer, which is the mileage of a newly driven sports car. This Porsche is number 286 of the 991 total units produced.

During the recent 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, one of the few cars that stood out would be this 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS that made its debut. Because it turned heads, it has inevitably become a favourite among rendering artists.

Some of them may just be for the hell of it, like the Coupe and the Cabriolet. The newest one looks actually quite promising. Imagined by artist Aksyonov Nikita, is a four-door coupe in the range topping AMG guise.

Up front, some of the noticeable changes would be the new bumper and the modified grille that includes the AMG badging. The rear end, on the other hand, gets a new bumper, carbon fiber diffuser and a boot lid spoiler, as well as quad tailpipes.

As soon as Toyota trademarked the names “LC F” and “Lexus LC F” at the European Union Intellectual Property Office, speculations have emerged that there could actually be a hardcore performance version of the Lexus LC 2+2 coupe. Just recently, an insider within Lexus has divulged to a Japanese automotive magazine that the LC F hardcore coupe could offer up to 621 hp of output.

In an interview with Japan’s Holiday Auto magazine – and as posted by Japan’s Lawrence Motorcycle X Car – the Lexus insider disclosed that the LC F would be taking on the formula of more power and less weight to offer a high level of performance without any compromise in luxury. This formula entails the employment of a powerful biturbo 4.0-liter V8 engine that could deliver around 621 hp (463 kW).

The formula also entails the intensive use of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer, a material that isn't just strong and rigid, but is also light and easy to shape. According to the Lexus insider, this weight-saving measure is being adopted on the LC F as the carmaker aims to make the hardcore performance car seven percent lighter than the LC coupe. If achieved, the LC F would have a weight of 3,980 lbs (1,778 kg).

Porsche has been making a killing in terms of sales with its two luxury sports utility vehicles, the compact Macan and the midsize Cayenne. While Porsche is known for its high-performance sports cars, its two SUVs have been outselling its other offerings combined. But perhaps time is already ripe for the German sports car maker to offer full-electric and coupe versions of the Macan and Cayenne. Porsche will decide on that matter next year.

In an interview with Automotive News during the recently held 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, Porsche chief executive Oliver Blume made it clear that the company’s first all-electric vehicle – based on the Porsche Mission E Concept sedan unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show – won’t be the company’s last project in electro-mobility. Thus, in line with its plans, the German sports car maker will be announcing its second electro-mobility project in the first half of 2018.

Blume quipped that the company needs to check first whether a Porsche SUV would make sense as its next electro-mobility project. This all-electric SUV could be an EV version of the Porsche Macan, as hinted by executives at the carmaker. The chances that the Macan or the Cayenne SUVs would be the Porsche’s next electro-mobility are high, considering that SUVs are its best-sellers. It would further diversify Porsche’s offerings without having to create a completely different vehicle. With the production version of the Mission E set to arrive in 2019, the EV variant of the Macan or Cayenne is anticipated to come shortly after that.

The unveiling of the Lamborghini Urus is considered as one of the automotive milestones achieve this year. Not only is the four-door Urus the company’s first sports utility vehicle, it is also regarded as the first super SUV in the world. It looks great and stunning in this four-door configuration, which is essential if you are trying to mix super performance and practicality.

Nonetheless, there are customers who would like their Urus super SUV to look more aggressive, with a styling that fits its super performance nature. Thus, some are trying to imagine the Urus as a coupe-styled SUV – with two doors and a longer bonnet. But if that is somewhat hard to imagine, an automotive graphic artist who goes by the professional moniker X-Tomi Design has just created a rendering of a coupe-styled Urus. It was a simple re-imagination of Urus four-door as a two-door, but it looks astonishing.

At first glance, the visual tweaks that X-Tomi implemented on the Lamborghini Urus entailed the removal of the two rear doors that allow access to the rear passenger cabin of the SUV. Furthermore, the bonnet of the Urus was seemingly made longer. Other than these, it appears that everything from the base of the A-pillar and the tip of the bonnet where it meets the windshield have been shifted to the rear.

When Chevrolet unveiled the 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 at the 2017 Dubai Motor Show, it described the super coupe as its most powerful and quickest production Corvette. With up to 755 hp (563 kW) of max output And 715 lb.-ft. (969 Nm) of peak torque available from its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine (LT5), the new Corvette ZR1 is a serious supercar for the track.

But now, Hennessey has come up with three power packages that essentially hike the power output of the 2019 Corvette ZR1. These power packages would appeal to ZR1 owners who want to squeeze the potential of their already high-performance super coupe. Each of the three power packages represents a new level of performance for the 2019 Corvette ZR1.

For instance, the HPE850 ups the power level of the 2019 Corvette ZR1 to 850 hp (634 kW) of max output and 715 lb.-ft. (969 Nm). This allows the Hennessey Corvette ZR1 HPE850 to accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.6 seconds, or 0.1 second quicker than the stock super coupe. This was achieve by employing high-flow cylinder heads, a high-flow air induction system and upgraded valve springs as well as a Hennessey lower pulley upgrade.

Over the past racing season, Cadillac has seen a wealth of success on the track. In fact, they took home the IMSA Weather Tech championship for the 2017 season. On one hand, Konica Minolta took home the Team championship; and on the other hand, brothers Ricky and Jordan Taylor brought home the Driver’s championship. To celebrate their success on the track, the American automaker will offer a couple of minimally modified performance vehicles to mark this occasion.

Having said that, it will be the ATS-V coupe and sedan, as well as the CTS-V sedan that will be getting a special Championship Edition to celebrate the success. Customers can choose from two exterior finishes including Black Raven or Crystal White Tricoat.

It also gets DPi-V.R. graphics on the quarter windows, red Brembo brake calipers, and forged polish-finished alloy V-Series wheels. All the red bits and pieces will definitely make it stand out from the rest. Don’t you think?
